If you are thinking about buying a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your current system, one of the first things to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that include? Essentially, it comes down to making sure that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Buying the incorrect size or type can have many effects from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it decreases its lifecycle.
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 isn’t wise to buy an air conditioner that is bigger than needed for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to use a system that is more than what’s required. 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 is too little and isn’t able to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit work harder.
With a number of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Luckily, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Parker Pearce Service Experts can give you 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 determine the size and type of equipment you need. Any company that does not provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately offer 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 decide which system is best for you, but it should 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 offer will have a positive impact on your family’s budget. Our team can walk you through what you’ll need to live comfortably in your home and share some thoughts on how to lower energy usage through a number of features available.
