A good contractor will not

  • Size your equipment solely on square footage
  • Assume your existing equipment was sized properly

Department of Energy***

  • It is the contractor's job to perform the correct sizing calculation for the home.


Problems Caused By Incorrect Sizing

Over sized
(shorter run time)
Undersized
(longer run time)
  • Higher installation costs
  • More breakdowns
  • Large temperature swings
  • Improper Humitidy Control
  • Constantly Running
  • Higher Energy Costs
  • Shorter Life
  • Reduced Comfort

Equipment alone will not solve all the problems!

The North Carolina Alternative Energy Corporation, a non-profit organization, examined air conditioning manufacturers' efficiencies versus the actual efficiencies that resulted after installation; they found the following:

90% of the units tested exhibited some sort of energy-wasting, comfort-robbing problem!
You Will Be in the Top 10%

Other significant hvac industry comfort & energy related surveys reveal*

Duct Leakage (93%)

* Poor indoor air quality
* Health and safety concerns
* Drafts and uneven temperature
* May DOUBLE hvac portion of the energy bill

Oversizing (47%)

* Doesn't run enough to wring out moisture
* Air in sunlit & shaded rooms does not mix
* Equipment typically noisier
* Shorter equipment life

Incorrect Refrigerant Charge (75%)

* Increased failure rate
* Reduced moisture removal
* Equipment typically noisier
* Uneven temperature
* Could add as much as 17% to operating costs

Incorrect Air Flow (70%)

* Uneven temperatures
* Poor moisture control
* Noisy grilles and registers
* Could add as much as 10% to operating costs

*Texas A&M University, Louisiana State University & Gulf States Utility, Lakeland Electric & Water, Pacific Gas & Electric, American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, etc. These studies address at least one problem a poor installation plays on comfort or energy cost. Occurrences have been averaged.
