The Right Size

The most common sizing mistake is over-sizing. This not only makes the new system more expensive to install, but also forces it to operate inefficiently, break down more often, and cost more to operate.  Most installers only check the "nameplate" (the label on the unit that has the Btu per hour output among other things) of the existing system and sell you one just like it, or even worse, one that's larger. Other methods that sound like they might be right include simple "rules of thumb" based on the size of your home or using a chart that accounts for a variety of factors. While these methods might provide a first estimate, they should not be used to size your system. 

Instead, we use the most accurate diagnosis based on additional considerations such as the orientation of your home, your current R levels based on windows and insulation, window area, location and type, air filtration rates, occupant preferences and even the types and efficiencies of lights and major home appliances which also give off heat.  If your system is 7-10 years old, we might be able to downsize the system with a more efficient system.
