If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is imperative in picking the system that will work best for your home. All homes are different in their cooling needs. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will impact your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s talk about 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 consider many other components to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in West Valley City, 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 would love to help you come across the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is very small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. Actually, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to function as long, an oversized system will continuously warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also minimize productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
