Why Sizing Is So Important During the AC Installation Process

You’d be surprised at how many so–called AC experts only look at the square footage of your home to estimate the size for your new air conditioning system. The size of your home is certainly an important factor, but it is not the only one. Using only the square footage can leave you with an air conditioner that is too big or too small for your home, and either size issue will leave you with a host of ongoing problems to deal with each summer. The answer? Hiring our pros for installation, because we’ll calculate a full cooling load before installing any system into your home.

Why is the correct calculation so important? An air conditioner that is too big for your home will cool it too quickly; your home won’t have the chance to dehumidify, leaving you with cool, clammy air. You too–big system is also likely to short–cycle, meaning it will turn on and off too quickly. Short–cycling is a sure way to run down your system prematurely. The opposite problem, a system that is too small, will leave you short on comfort and long on energy use because the system will run too much in an effort to meet your cooling needs. This won’t ever be an issue when you hire the Western Heating & Cooling cooling pros for installation or replacement.

Don’t Let That AC Repair Slide

As the homeowner, you can usually tell when your whole house air conditioning system isn’t working as it should be. Many times, we get calls for air conditioning repair help when the system is still operational. However, just because your system is running doesn’t mean it won’t need repair, especially if the performance is poor, it is making strange noises or there’s an odd odor emitting from somewhere in the system. Ignoring signs and signals that your AC needs some help can end up costing you a lot more than getting help as soon as you detect a problem. Repair issues do not take care of themselves, and typically get worse over time. This is why we offer comprehensive repair services, including emergency service, whenever you need it. Don’t wait for your system to fully breakdown before call us – let us help you at the first sign of an issue with your whole home AC.
