Several factors influence how to properly size an HVAC system for your home.
Square footage of your living space, the windows, and the appliances are a few of the items to consider when a professional HVAC contractor determines the proper equipment size.
These items are used to form a load calculation, which is a mathematical method to determine exactly how much heating and cooling is needed to maintain the optimum temperature in your home. A proper load calculation is crucial to the performance of the installed equipment.
Here are some of the symptoms of an undersized or oversized heating and air conditioning system.
Undersized HVAC systems
If the equipment is undersized, it will continually run, but never heat the home properly. Of course, you need to consider the temperature outside when you think your home is not heating properly.
Temperature inconsistencies can increase energy costs due to poor quality ductwork, restricted duct work, or undersized equipment. If your HVAC system is old or too small for the space, it can result in temperature imbalances.
Having your older system inspected by a professional HVAC contractor can save you from being uncomfortable during peak demand.
