WHAT SIZE AC SYSTEM IS APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS?
To accurately gauge the exact climate control system requirements to keep your home or office comfortable and running efficiently is a complex calculation that takes into account many variables. From total square footage, number of rooms, ductwork measurements, and insulation factors to building materials, attic space, roof type, window design and a much more!
This detailed calculation is called a “Manual J Load Calculation”. Literally an entire HVAC manual is dedicated to this concept and these calculations should be undertaken by a trained comfort specialist. Installing too large of a systems can lead to issues such as short run cycles, which can cause humidity problem and high electric bills. Installing too small of a system can lead to extended run times, difficulty in maintaining desired temperature and high electric bills.
