Consider System Matching in Your Next Air Conditioner Replacement

April 13, 2015

To keep your home cool in the warmer months, your best friend is your air conditioner. When you find you need an air conditioner replacement, get ahold of the experienced professionals at Three Rivers Heating & Cooling to be sure your system is designed well, and correctly matched size-wise with equipment that is built to work together well. System matching is notably important if you are only changing out one piece of a system so you can make sure any new component works well with the rest. While air conditioner replacement isn’t always seen as fun, it can let you take your home comfort to the next level.

 

A Match Made in HVAC Heaven

Three Rivers Heating & Cooling offers Lennox® air conditioners and heat pumps that are made to work hand-in-hand 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 the most comfort.

It’s important to be sure your dealer considers size with system matching. An HVAC system can only function at its best when it is sized properly to meet the individual needs of your home.

Considering Size

You may think 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. The truth is, an air conditioner that is too large for your home cycles on and off frequently. This continuous cycling makes it difficult to dehumidify the air, leaving your home overly humid.

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 warmer summer days. You could end up paying higher monthly power bills, and your system will likely not last as long as a properly sized one.

So, how can you find the perfectly sized system for your home? It’s simple. Leave it to the experts at Three Rivers Heating & Cooling in Portland. We’ll visit your home to perform a load calculation that considers the square footage of your house, how well your windows are insulated, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof as well as a number of 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. Give Three Rivers Heating & Cooling a call at 503-213-4433 to schedule an appointment.
