If you are thinking about purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first things to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that mean? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Getting 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 key 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 will cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which may also lead to poor indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that isn’t big enough 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 run more.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Strogen's Service Experts can offer a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to determine the size and type of equipment needed. 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 impact on your family’s budget. Our professionals can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some thoughts on how to lower energy usage through various features available.
Whether you are in need of a new air conditioning system or looking to increase your home’s efficiency and comfort level, the professionals at Strogen's Service Experts in Rochester are happy to help. You can call us at 603-923-4570 or easily request an appointment with our online scheduler.
