Consider System Matching in Your Next Air Conditioner Replacement

April 13, 2015

To keep your home cool in the warmest months, your best friend is your air conditioner. When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, talk to the experienced experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning to ensure your system is designed well, and correctly matched size-wise with equipment that is built to work together correctly. System matching is particularly important if you are only changing out one piece of a system as you want to make sure any new component works well with the rest. While air conditioner replacement isn’t always seen as fun, it can help you take your home comfort to the next level.

 

A Match Made in HVAC Heaven

Freed Heating & Air Conditioning offers Lennox® air conditioners and heat pumps that are made to work hand-in-hand with a correctly matched indoor unit. A properly matched system will help you with efficiency when paired with an indoor furnace/evaporator coil or air handler. This means you’ll get the most comfort.

It’s important to make sure your dealer considers size with system matching. Any HVAC system can only function at its best when it is sized properly to meet the unique needs of your home.

Considering Size

You may be under the impression that when it comes to the size of your air conditioner replacement, you only need to consider whether it’s too small to cool your entire home. In reality, an air conditioner that is too large for your home cycles on and off frequently. This continuous cycling makes it hard to dehumidify the air, leaving your home too humid.

Undersized air conditioner replacements have a different problem. They have to run continuously trying to cool your home and may not be able to work hard enough on warmer summer days. You could end up paying more money for your monthly power bills, and your system will likely not last as long as an appropriately sized one.

So, how can you find the perfectly sized system for your home? It’s simple. Leave it to the experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning in Moline. We’ll make a house call to perform a load calculation that considers the square footage of your house, how well your windows are insulated, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof as well as many other factors.
