If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in finding the system that will work best for your home. All homes are unique in their cooling demands. If your system is improperly sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was discovered only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include several other components to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Pflugerville, 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 is right for your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too big for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to function as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than necessary.
- It can also reduce effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
