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 different in their cooling needs. If your system is improperly sized, it will impact your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was determined only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include several other components to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Los Angeles, 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 aim to help you come across 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 bigger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too big for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to run 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 reduce productivity 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.
