Air condition in the Sacramento area presents a unique energy challenge. During heat waves, your air conditioning system works extremely hard to keep your home cool. During the hot summer months, typically the biggest segment of your energy expenses are dedicated to cooling your home. As air conditioning systems age, they become less efficient at cooling your living space. If your existing system wasn’t properly sized, this issue becomes worse over time. Proper sizing of your air conditioning system is essential.
Most people think “bigger is better,” but this approach results in larger energy bills, without providing greater comfort. As cooling experts, we size cooling systems by calculating the cooling load of your home or business. We also take into account our Northern California climate and your personal preferences, resulting in a cooling system that meets your comfort needs and makes good use of energy, while requiring fewer repairs and maintenance.
Properly sized systems will:
- Consume less energy
- Protect indoor air quality
- Boost comfort
- Eliminate temperature imbalances
Why Ductwork Is So Important
Although it works as the backbone of your cooling system, the importance of ductwork is often underappreciated. Ductwork leakage is one of the biggest energy wasters. With an improperly duct system, your home will not be as comfortable or energy efficient as it could be.
Ductwork problems, such as air leaks, improper sizing or obstructions can cause uneven temperatures, high energy bills and issues with indoor air quality. Ductwork must be well-sealed, insulated and sized to ensure your home’s heating and cooling systems are working as efficiently as possible.
