If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is imperative in picking 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 affect your comfort and raise your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Originally, a load calculation was discovered only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include several other factors to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Omaha, 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 would love 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 perfect temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too big 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 creates more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also reduce productivity 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.
