If you are thinking through purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your current system, one of the first items to ponder is a load calculation.
What exactly does that mean? Really, it comes down to being sure that you get properly-sized system for your home. Buying 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 reduces its life.
Every home is distinct; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are crucial considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t the most wise to purchase an air conditioner that is larger than what you need for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to run a system that is more than what’s required. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which may also lead to bad indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that isn’t big enough and isn’t able 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 operate more.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be a bear to know where to begin. Luckily, this isn’t something you need to take care of on your own. The Expert team at Midway Services can give you 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 figure out the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that does not provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately offer 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 determine 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 offer will have a positive influence on your family’s budget. Our experts can walk you through what you’ll need to live comfortably in your home and share some tidbits on how to lower energy usage through a number of features available.
