When you’re ready to make a new air conditioner purchase, there are a lot of factors to consider. Too often, homeowners assume that “the bigger, the better” and go ahead and get the biggest, most powerful system they can afford.
Of course, if you work with a trained and experienced contractor for your installation, such as our team, we won’t let this happen–we will make sure you’re well informed on how a system that is too small will be detrimental to cooling efficiency and efficacy, so too will a system that’s too large, or too powerful.
You see, we measure the “tonnage” of an air conditioner against aspects of your living space. These aspects include things like the square footage of your home, how many windows and doors it has, how high the ceilings are, and what type of insulation you have. This is called a cooling load calculation. Read on to learn more, and remember, the best way to ensure you get the right-sized air conditioner is to contact our team!
