Most homeowners in Jacksonville, Florida, don’t realize their HVAC system needs a special installation to determine exactly how much heating and cooling the home actually needs. Performing load testing takes into consideration many factors including window types and which areas are less or more energy efficient, to name a few. A professional load testing evaluation from a well-known HVAC services company is important to have an effective HVAC system. Learn some of the advantages of using load testing for HVAC installation.
Every House Is Different
Every house has its own particular needs when it comes to efficient heating and cooling. During a load testing service, we use Manual J protocol to determine your home’s load calculation. Everything from the house’s direction to the amount of sun it receives is used to calculate the right size. Many homeowners have a bigger system than the house needs because many contractors don’t use load testing and instead rely on a best guess.
More Energy-Efficient HVAC System
A bigger HVAC system than you need brings problems. If the system is too big, it turns off quickly without properly heating or cooling your home. Your house feels too humid and unpleasant. If load testing is done with HVAC installation, the system heats and cools as needed for a comfortable home.
A Longer Lifespan
Since an HVAC system that has not been size properly, it will turn on and off often, working harder and will tend to break down quicker. If load testing is done, a properly-sized system runs smoothly and has a longer lifespan. You save money on costly breakdowns and repairs and on a bigger system, which is more expensive to install on the front end.
