If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is crucial in finding the system that will work best for your house. All homes are specific in their cooling demands. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will decrease your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.
Originally, a load calculation was discovered only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard many other components to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Excelsior Springs, the square footage and build of your home, the level of insulation, your roof size and type, the size and location of windows, your home’s sun exposure and your family’s habits and schedule.
We want to help you find the air conditioner replacement that fits your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to run as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This causes more wear and tear on the system than necessary.
- It can also decrease effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
