Proper sizing and installation are critical to ensuring your air conditioner is efficient. Too large a unit will not adequately remove humidity. And too small a unit will not be able to maintain a comfortable temperature on the hottest days. Improper unit location, lack of insulation, and improper duct installation can also greatly diminish your AC system’s efficiency and your overall comfort.
Before recommending a system, your Sure Temp technician will begin by evaluating your home by performing an Air Conditioning Contractors of America Manual J load calculation. This determines the heat gain your home is subject to. The calculation is relatively easy to determine and will reveal what size air conditioning unit you need to effectively and efficiently cool your entire home.
