If you are thinking about purchasing a new air conditioner or looking closer at 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 being sure that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Purchasing the wrong size or type can have many effects from the inability to keep your house cool to operating so hard that it reduces its lifespan.
Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t the most wise to buy an air conditioner that is larger than needed for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what’s needed. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to bad indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too little and can’t to keep up. Not only does this effect the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit run harder.
With a number of different models and sizes, it can be a bear to know where to begin. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to handle on your own. The Expert team at Pardee 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 decide the size and type of equipment you’ll need. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately provide an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even provide 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 will also help you receive the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when considering 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 thoughts on how to reduce energy usage through various features available.
