If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is crucial in finding the system that will work best for your house. All homes are specific in their cooling requirements. If your system is improperly sized, it will impact your comfort and raise your utility bills. Let’s discuss what goes into a load calculation.
Originally, 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 many other steps to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Muskogee, 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 want to help you discover the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to run as long, an oversized system will consistently warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also reduce productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
