If you are thinking through purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first items to ponder is a load calculation.
What exactly does that mean? Basically, it comes down to being sure that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Buying the incorrect size or type can have many implications from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it reduces its life.
Every home is unique; 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 buy an air conditioner that is larger than what you need for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to lower humidity levels in the home and an oversized system will not properly dehumidify the air which may also lead to bad indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that isn’t big enough and can’t to keep up. Not only does this effect the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit work more.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to handle on your own. The Expert team at Robinson Service Experts can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation includes factors like the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to determine 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 offer you the best more accurate price of a new system.
Not only does this assessment help determine which system is best for you, but it can also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to include utility costs when considering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can give you will have a positive effect on your family’s budget. Our team can walk you through what you’ll need to live comfortably in your home and share some ideas on how to reduce energy usage through various features available.
