Consider System Matching in Your Next Air Conditioner Replacement

April 13, 2015

To keep your home sweat-free in the summer, your best friend is your air conditioner. When when signs indicate you need an air conditioner replacement, call the experienced pros at Colvin's Heating and Cooling to ensure your system is designed well, and appropriately matched size-wise with equipment that is designed to work together correctly. System matching is particularly important if you are only changing out one piece of a system so you can make sure any new component works hand-in-hand with the rest. While air conditioner replacement may not be your idea of fun, it can help you take your home comfort to the next level.

 

A Match Made in HVAC Heaven

Colvin's Heating and Cooling offers Lennox® air conditioners and heat pumps that are designed to work hand-in-hand with a properly matched indoor unit. A properly matched system will help keep everything running efficiently when paired with an indoor furnace/evaporator coil or air handler. This means you’ll get the most comfort.

It’s crucial to be sure your dealer considers size with system matching. Any HVAC system can only operate at its best when it is sized properly to meet the specific needs of your home.

Considering Size

You may think that when it comes to the size of your air conditioner replacement, you only need to consider whether it’s too small to cool your entire home. The truth is, an air conditioner that is too large for your home cycles on and off frequently. This constant cycling makes it difficult to dehumidify the air, leaving your home overly humid.

Undersized air conditioner replacements have a different problem. They have to run continuously trying to cool your home and may not be able to work hard enough on some of the hottest summer days. You could end up paying more on your monthly power bills, and your system will likely not last as long as an appropriately sized one.

So, how can you find the perfectly sized system for your home? You don’t have to worry. Leave it to the experts at Colvin's Heating and Cooling in Excelsior Springs. We’ll come to your home to perform a load calculation that takes into account the square footage of your house, how well your windows are insulated, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof as well as several other factors.

When the time arrives for an air conditioner replacement, be sure to prioritize system matching so you can find the best match for your home. Give Colvin's Heating and Cooling a call at 816-379-3918 to schedule an appointment.
