If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is imperative in choosing the system that will work best for your home. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is improperly sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase 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 regard many other components to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Bossier 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 want to help you discover the air conditioner replacement that completes your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t always mean it’s better. Actually, if your system is too oversized for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to operate 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 reduce efficiency and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
