If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is crucial in choosing the system that will work best for your house. All homes are specific in their cooling demands. 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.
Traditionally, a load calculation was conducted only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard several other components to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Chelan and Wenatchee, 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 discover the air conditioner replacement that completes your home. If your system is very small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is hefty 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 function as long, an oversized system will continuously warm up and cool down. This causes more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also minimize effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
