If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is crucial in picking the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling needs. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will impact your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Traditionally, a load calculation was conducted only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider several other components to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Phoenix, the square footage and structure 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 aim to help you discover the air conditioner replacement that is right for 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 bigger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too oversized 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 creates more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also reduce effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
