Consider System Matching in Your Next Air Conditioner Replacement

April 13, 2015

To keep your home cool in the warmer months, you rely on your air conditioner. When when signs indicate you need an air conditioner replacement, talk to the experienced experts at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning to be sure your system is designed well, and correctly matched size-wise with equipment that is designed to work together correctly. System matching is particularly important if you are only replacing one piece of a system as you want to make sure any new component works in tandem with the rest. While air conditioner replacement may not be your idea of fun, it can help you take your home comfort to the next level.

 

A Match Made in HVAC Heaven

Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning offers Lennox® air conditioners and heat pumps that are designed to work together 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 imperative to make sure your dealer considers size with system matching. An HVAC system can only operate at its best when it is sized properly to meet the individual needs of your home.

Considering Size

You may think that when it comes to the size of your air conditioner replacement, you only need to make sure it’s not too small to cool your entire home. The truth is, an air conditioner that is too large for your home cycles on and off frequently. This perpetual cycling makes it hard to dehumidify the air, leaving your home more humid than you’d like.

Undersized air conditioner replacements have the opposite problem. They have to run continuously in an effort to cool your home and may not be able to accomplish the task on some of the hottest 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 Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning in Hattiesburg. We’ll visit your home 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.

When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, be sure to prioritize system matching so you can find the best match for your home. Give Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 601-292-9763 to schedule an appointment.
