Before making a recommendation for your air conditioner replacement, we will perform what we refer to as a load calculation. This calculation will help us determine how much cooling capacity your air conditioner replacement requires to maintain a consistent temperature in your home. We will acquire a variety of information to complete this calculation, including your home’s square footage, the quality of your insulation, window and door measurements, and more. Other factors we will consider include:

  • How many people live in your home
  • How much sun exposure your home receives throughout the day
  • The types of appliances you have and how much heat they generate
  • The weather and climate in your local area
  • The type of exterior construction of your home
  • The layout and construction of your interior ductwork
  • Features that could contribute to cooling or heating loss and gain, such as a skylight or a fireplace

Once we have all the information we need, we can make recommendations for your new air conditioner replacement. To start this process or to learn more about replacing your home’s air conditioner, contact us.
