If you are thinking about buying a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first things to ponder is a load calculation.
What exactly does that mean? Basically, it comes down to being sure that you get properly-sized system for your home. Buying the incorrect size or type can have a lot of consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it lowers its life.
Every home is unique; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t the most wise to purchase an air conditioner that is bigger than what you need for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what’s needed. Air conditioners also help to lower humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to decreased indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that isn’t big enough and unable to keep up. Not only does this effect the cooling of your home during the warmer seasons, but it’ll also make the unit run harder.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to turn for answers. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to handle on your own. The Expert team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to figure out the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly provide an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even provide you the best more accurate price of a new system.
Not only does this assessment help figure out which system is best for you, but it can also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products.
