If you have decided that it’s time to replace that old air conditioner of yours, make sure to educate yourself on the proper sizing of your cooling system with Manual J. HVAC experts developed Manual J as a calculation tool to determine the exact cooling and dehumidifying requirements of individual homes. The benefits of correctly sizing your air conditioner are as easy as ABC.
- Air quality: Despite what you may think, bigger is not always better. An air conditioner that is too big for your home’s needs will not be able to properly dehumidify your home. This may give you problems with extra moisture that can lead to the growth of mildew and mold in areas of poor ventilation.
- Budget: Trying to manage your budget and reduce spending? Start with your air conditioner. When your cooling system is tailored to the specific needs of your home, it will run at maximum efficiency without burning a hole through your wallet.
- Comfort: The primary function of an air conditioner is to keep you comfortable throughout the hot & humid New Jersey summer. Having your sensible and latent heating loads calculated with Manual J will keep you as cool and dry as possible. These measurements will tell you exactly how much heat and humidity your air conditioner needs to remove from your home to allow for optimum comfort.
Working with an HVAC professional to properly calculate your air conditioning needs with Manual J is a wise decision when updating your climate control system.
