If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is crucial in choosing the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling needs. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s discuss 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 include several other factors to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Oxford, 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 fits your home. If your system is very small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t absolutely 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 regularly warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than necessary.
- It can also minimize productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
