If you are thinking about buying 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 mean? Really, it comes down to making sure that you get properly-sized system for your home. Buying the wrong size or type can have many implications from the inability to keep your house cool to running 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 crucial considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to purchase an air conditioner that is larger than needed for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to run 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 can also lead to poor indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too small and unable to keep up. Not only does this play a role in the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit run more.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to begin. Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Teays Valley Service Experts can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to figure out the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly provide 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 figure out 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 factor in utility costs when making your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can provide will have a positive effect on your family’s budget. Our team can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some tidbits on how to reduce energy usage through various features available.
