Are You Considering Replacing Your Current AC With a Larger One? What You Need to Know.
Putting a too-large AC in your home or business can negatively affect your cooling system’s performance and efficiency. Here are a few reasons why:
An AC unit that is too small will struggle to cool your home efficiently, while one that is too large will waste energy and result in higher energy bills. A properly sized unit will provide efficient cooling, comfortable humidity levels, and even cool air distribution throughout your home.
An HVAC load calculation determines the heating and cooling needs of a home or space. This calculation takes into account a number of factors such as the size of the space, the insulation, the number of occupants, the number and size of windows and doors, and the local climate. The calculation results in the size (in British Thermal Units, or BTUs) of the heating and cooling equipment needed to maintain a comfortable temperature in the space.
A proper HVAC load calculation is essential to ensure the heating and cooling system is properly sized for the space. If the system is too small, it will not be able to cool or heat the space adequately, and if it is too large, it will waste energy and result in higher energy bills.
It’s important to have an HVAC professional perform a load calculation for your home or business to ensure that you have the right-sized heating and cooling equipment for your needs. An accurate load calculation can help to ensure efficient and effective operation of your HVAC system, lower energy costs, and provide optimal comfort for occupants of the space.
