If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having a technician perform a load calculation is important in choosing the system that will work best for your home. All homes are unique in their cooling requirements. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will impact your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.
Traditionally, a load calculation was conducted only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include many other factors to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Winnipeg, the square footage and build 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 is right for your home. If your system is very small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too oversized 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 causes more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also minimize efficiency and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
