Is Bigger Better?

You would think so, but that’s not always true. A unit that is too big will cool so quickly that it does not run long enough to remove the humidity from the air. The result is that your home will feel cold and damp. That’s great if you’re a bat. But most people simply are not comfortable in that environment. 

Sizing an air conditioning system properly is about calculating two main factors: Size of the home and heat load. While the size of the home is a straight forward calculation, heat load is bit more complex. There are internal heat loads and external heat loads. Internal variables include: people, appliances, light bulbs, TVs, computers, etc… External variables include sun exposure, type of materials the home is built from and it’s ability to keep external heat out (insulation, weather stripping, etc…). 

We’ll carefully calculate all those variables to properly size your system. Call West Coast appliance Services to set your free consultation.
