If you are thinking about getting a new air conditioner or looking closer at the performance of your present system, one of the first things to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that entail? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Buying the improper size or type can have many consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to operating so hard that it decreases its life.
Every home is unique; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are crucial considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t wise to buy an air conditioner that is larger than what’s required for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what’s required. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to poor indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that isn’t big enough and isn’t able to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit work harder.
With a number of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Luckily, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Comfortech Service Experts can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to decide the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly give you an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even offer you the best more accurate price of a new system.
Not only does this assessment help decide which system is best for you, but it can also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when pondering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can provide will have a positive influence on your family’s budget. Our experts can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some ideas on how to reduce energy usage through various features available.
