PART 1 - PROPER SYSTEM SIZING
ACCA Manual J Load Calculation Customized for your Residence
Customers will often ask our team members. "Do I really need a Manual J load calculation for my home” Our answer, “1,000% YES!"
According to accredited and nationally recognized engineering professionals a load calculation is an essential step in the design and purchase of a new HVAC system and should never be skipped. Accurate sizing ensures optimum efficiency, humidity control and overall comfort of the occupants.
A load calculation typically takes about an hour and at Bay Area we carefully complete each one as there is no do over after installation. The average homeowner will buy 2-3 HVAC systems in their entire life. It is our belief they deserve a properly sized system each and every time.
National industry surveys have revealed that well over half of all HVAC contractors do not size heating and cooling systems properly. This can lead to both under and oversizing of equipment. Ramifications or each include:
- Oversized equipment results m a higher installation cost and inefficient operations that increase utility bills. Additionally, oversized equipment does not operate long enough to control excess humidity, making the home clammy, uncomfortable, and susceptible to mold.
- Undersized equipment can struggle to keep home al temperature meaning higher than expected electric bills.
PART 2 - SYSTEM PROTECTION
Suncoast HVAC Defense Package
After years of service calls related to HVAC systems being damaged by lightning, electrical surges, corrosion, and clogged drain lines, our team set out to create an all-inclusive protection package for each new system we install. The result is our Suncoast Defense Package which defends your system against 3 common threats to its health:
Lightning and Electrical Surges
The Tampa Bay area is known for excessive lightning during its rainy season. To protect HVAC systems against it, we install an industry leading Type 1 and Type 2 compatible HVAC surge protector that comes with a 3-year warranty and a $7,500 connected equipment manufacturer warranty.
Galvanic Corrosion and Rust
According to recent studies conducted by the Galvanizers Association and the study conducted by Fraunhofer-ISE, most of America's coast witnesses mild levels of salt intrusion. Florida, however, receives the highest rate of salt penetration in the US, and it can reach up to 100 miles inland!
To combat salt, UV rays, acid rain, air pollutants and similar corrosives, Bay Area applies a 2-stage coating of Gulfcoat coil coating on every outdoor unit we install.
Clogged Drain Lines
The hot and humid conditions of the Tampa Bay area are notorious for clogging HVAC drain lines. For this reason, Bay Area Heating and Cooling offers the only drain line clog guarantee in the industry.
If you are the original purchaser of the registered equipment, you perform annual maintenance and maintain your Drain Guard if your drain line backs up, we will come clear it during normal I business hours for FREE for the life of your HVAC system.
