If you are considering purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first points to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that mean? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Purchasing the incorrect size or type can have many consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to working 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 may 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 effect the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit operate harder.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Lucky for you, 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 includes factors like the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to determine the size and type of equipment you’ll need. 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 determine which system is best for you, but it will also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when pondering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can provide will have a positive impact on your family’s budget. Our team can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some thoughts on how to reduce energy usage through various features available.
Whether you are looking at a new air conditioning system or looking to improve your home’s efficiency and comfort level, the team at Parker Pearce Service Experts in Gaithersburg are happy to help. You can call us at 301-476-4577 or easily request an appointment with our online scheduler.
