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? Really, it comes down to making sure that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Purchasing the wrong size or type can have a lot of effects from the inability to keep your house cool to operating 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 important considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to purchase an air conditioner that is more than needed for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what you need. 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 poor indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too small and unable to keep up. Not only does this play a role in 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 overwhelming to know where to start. Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air can provide you with 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 need. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly 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 determine 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 considering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can offer 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 decrease energy usage through various features available.
