If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is imperative in finding the system that will work best for your house. All homes are specific in their cooling needs. If your system is improperly sized, it will decrease your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was conducted only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include various other steps to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Tuscaloosa, 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 come across the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better. Actually, if your system is too big for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to run as long, an oversized system will continuously warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than necessary.
- It can also decrease efficiency and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
