What Size Should My Replacement Air Conditioner Be?
You’ve reached the point where it’s time for an air conditioner replacement
or perhaps you see this point approaching quickly, but how do you figure out the size of system you’ll need? Selecting the correct size is very important for your system’s efficiency and your home’s comfort. There’s a perfect air conditioner
out there for you and your comfort needs.
When replacing your system, bigger isn’t always better.
Buying a system that is too large wastes energy and money. A larger system will continuously be warming up and cooling down because it’s productivity will not require it to runas long. This is known as “short cycling” and it increases the wear on your system and in turn decreases the lifespan of your system. An oversized unit will cost you more money up front and down the road.
On the other hand, a system that is undersized will run too long and can’t fully cool your home when the weather gets warm. An incorrectly sized system will have to work harder, your bills may be higher and your comfort will be impacted because of that. It’s very important to talk to a pro that will perform a load calculation and advise you on the best system for your needs.
How is Load Calculation Determined?
A home’s load calculation used to be calculated based exclusively on square footage and was often incorrect. Technology and knowledge have come a long way since then. When you’re ready for a replacement air conditioner, one of the pros from A2Z Air Inc will study your home as a whole and then be able to offer an accurate load calculation. Load calculations include everything from the construction of your home, amount of insulation, the local climate and type and color of your roof, to the number of home occupants – a truly all-encompassing assessment of your needs.
