If you are thinking through purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your present system, one of the first items to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that entail? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Getting the incorrect size or type can have many consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it decreases its lifespan.
Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to purchase an air conditioner that is bigger than needed for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to use a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to poor indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too little and unable to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit operate harder.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be a bear to know where to start. Luckily, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Atmostemp Service Experts can give you a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation factors in the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to decide the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly offer an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even give you the best more accurate price of a new system.
Not only does this assessment help decide which system is best for you, but it should also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when considering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can offer will have a positive influence on your family’s budget. Our experts can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some thoughts on how to reduce energy usage through various features available.
