So what factors into a home’s load calculation? Our experts take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you will need.

We want to pair you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always better. A system that is bigger than necessary can create a variety of problems. It could cost you more money to use. An oversized system doesn’t have to operate as long so it will continually be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your unit. A unit that doesn’t run as long also fails to dehumidify the air, which could diminish your comfort. If your system isn’t big enough, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the chosen temperature. Ensuring appropriate air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to make sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all working in sync to keep you comfortable.
