Equipment Sizing

At Casteel Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Electrical, making sure that your home is properly evaluated and your HVAC equipment is chosen accordingly is our priority. That’s part of our guarantee to take Amazing Care of you.  Many homeowners assume that the bigger the air conditioner, the better your home will be cooled. While theoretically that sounds right, mechanically that is not the correct answer to cooling your home properly and efficiently. It’s kind of like buying a pair of shoes bigger than necessary just in case you need them one day. That’s just not practical.Equipment Sizing

Years ago it was common place for heating and cooling companies to use a “rule of thumb” square footage method to choose the size of the equipment. So while the equipment functioned, it didn’t properly and efficiently cool a home. Too large of a unit resulted in a cold and clammy house with a higher energy bill. The unit was forced to cycle on and off more frequently raising your utility bills and putting more wear and tear on the equipment itself. Too small of a unit resulted in the equipment running at length to properly cool the home to the set temperature. Neither of these choices are good for the equipment or good for your wallet. Don’t fall into this “rule of thumb” category. By calling Casteel Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Electrical and having one of our  NATE certified professional come out and evaluate your home, assures that you have exactly what you need for your square footage and design of home.

One of the most crucial steps when installing a new HVAC system is to have a professional properly figure out the load calculation of your home. At Casteel Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Electrical we don’t use a “rule of thumb” method that is based off of the square footage of your home. Our professionals use a program to mathematically figure the proper load calculation suited for only you. Call it "catered comfort."

Heating and cooling loads are the measure of energy needed to be added or removed from a space by the HVAC system. There are a number of variables that collectively figure the load: a house’s location, the tightness of its envelope, the seasons, number of windows & doors, square footage and even occupancy can change the final calculation.

By having the accurate calculation suited to your home, you will have the properly sized equipment and even the recommended duct design resulting in the perfect temperature and humidity levels year round. The next step is catering your air quality and energy efficiency. Contact Casteel today and have one of our System Design Managers cater your comfort to the needs of your home and family. Consider them your very own personal HVAC concierge service. You can set up a free estimate by calling 770-565-5884 or schedule online. Your comfort is our priority.
