With winter slowly, but surely, coming to an end soon, it’s
time to focus our attention on our air conditioning systems. What kind of shape
is yours in? Is it time for you to invest in a replacement?
If it is time for you to upgrade, you are likely tempted to
just go ahead and buy the biggest and best system you can afford and get it
installed quickly, right? We really want to encourage you to slow down and
consider the implications of this, though. Rushing into an air conditioner
purchase can lead you to not only getting the wrong model of air conditioner
for your specific home, but the wrong size
too, which will have serious implications to the efficiency of the
equipment and the comfort of your home.
To properly size a system, our professionals must do what’s
called a cooling load calculation. “Wait,” you might be wondering,” I thought
you were going to tell me how to
calculate the air conditioning load of a room?”
This is actually a pretty complex job, and it’s not just the
room we have to calculate the load for, but your entire home. There are a number of factors that go into this calculation.
