Consider System Matching in Your Next Air Conditioner Replacement04/13/2015To keep your home comfortable in the warmest months, you rely on your air conditioner. When you find you need an air conditioner replacement, talk to the experienced professionals at O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning to make sure your system is designed well, and correctly matched size-wise with equipment that is engineered to work together well. System matching is particularly important if you are only buying one piece of a system as you want to make sure any new component works hand-in-hand with the rest. While air conditioner replacement may not seem very fun, it can let you take your home comfort to the next level. A Match Made in HVAC Heaven O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning offers Lennox® air conditioners and heat pumps that are made to work in tandem with a correctly matched indoor unit. A properly matched system will help improve efficiency when paired with an indoor furnace/evaporator coil or air handler. This means you’ll get peak comfort. It’s imperative to ensure your dealer considers size with system matching. An HVAC system can only work at its best when it is sized properly to meet the individual needs of your home. Considering Size You may believe 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 perpetual cycling makes it nearly impossible 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 get the job done on hotter summer days. You could end up paying more on 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? You don’t have to worry. Leave it to the experts at O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning in the Main Line. We’ll visit your home to perform a load calculation that incorporates the square footage of your house, how well your windows are insulated, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof as well as several other factors. When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, be sure to consider system matching so you can find the best match for your home.
