If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is crucial in choosing the system that will work best for your house. All homes are different in their cooling needs. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will decrease your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.
Originally, a load calculation was discovered only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include various other components to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Odessa, the square footage and build 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 come across the air conditioner replacement that fits 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 bigger doesn’t necessarily 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 operate as long, an oversized system will consistently warm up and cool down. This causes more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also minimize effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
