If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a technician perform a load calculation is imperative in finding the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are unique in their cooling demands. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will impact your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s discuss what goes into a load calculation.
Originally, a load calculation was discovered only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard various other factors to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Sandpoint, the square footage and design 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 discover the air conditioner replacement that completes your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t always mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too oversized 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 causes more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also decrease effectiveness 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.
One key to your home’s comfort is creating proper airflow. Age Heating & Cooling can help with a room-by-room load calculation. We will make sure all components of your system—your air conditioner, ductwork and registers—are working together to keep you comfortable.
