If you are thinking through purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first items to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that include? Essentially, it comes down to making sure that you get correctly-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 decreases its lifecycle.
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 doesn’t make sense to purchase an air conditioner that is bigger than what you need 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 seasonal temperatures, 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 Fras-Air/General Service Experts can give you a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation factors in 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 give you 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 considering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can give you will have a positive influence on your family’s budget. Our experts can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some thoughts on how to lower energy usage through various features available.
