If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having a technician perform a load calculation is crucial in picking the system that will work best for your house. All homes are unique in their cooling requirements. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will impact your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s discuss what goes into a load calculation.
Originally, a load calculation was conducted only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include various other factors to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Bend, the square footage and design 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 really small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t always mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too oversized for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to run as long, an oversized system will consistently warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also reduce effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
