If you are considering buying a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your current system, one of the first items to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that include? Basically, it comes down to ensuring that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Purchasing the wrong size or type can have a variety of consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it lowers its lifecycle.
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 get 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 lower 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 unable to keep up. Not only does this play a role in the cooling of your home during the warmer seasons, but it’ll also make the unit work tougher.
With a number of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to turn for answers. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to take care of on your own. The Expert team at Epperson Service Experts 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 decide the size and type of equipment you’ll need. Any company that does not provide this detailed analysis can’t correctly 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 decide which system is best for you, but it can also help you get the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to think about utility costs when making your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can give you will have a positive effect on your family’s budget.
