If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in finding the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are specific in their cooling demands. If your system is improperly sized, it will impact your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was discovered only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider several other components to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Fort Lauderdale, the square footage and design 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 really small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t always mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to function as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also decrease productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
