Why Do I Need Them?

Heaters and air conditioners need to be properly sized in order to do their job properly. As you’ve probably suspected, underpowered units won’t be able to do the job effectively. But overpowered units are often just as bad: cooling or heating the house too quickly and turning on and off far more often than they should. Since HVAC systems use exponentially more energy turning on and off than they do simply running, an overpowered system will cost you far more in monthly bills than it should and create a lot of unnecessary strain to boot. Manual D and J will help prevent all of that, and with help from the pros at Skylake Heating & Air can determine the right power levels for your home in Orem, UT.

What Is Manual J?

Manual J calculations are designed to determine all of the little details in your home that cause it to absorb heat in the summer and let out heat in the winter. We have our share of hot and cold days here in Orem, UT, so both halves of the equation are important. The calculations themselves factor in such variables as the amount of insulation in your walls, the amount of sunlight exposure, the particular size and shape of the rooms, the status of double–paned windows and similar energy–saving devices, and the number of occupants.

What is Manual D?

Manual J calculations determine the overall energy efficiency of your Orem, UT home. Manual D is designed specifically for your ductwork: the layout, the size of the ducts and other factors to measure their efficiency in relation to the rest of your system. When coupled with a Manual J calculation, Manual D calculations can give you a reliable idea of how much power your system will need, allowing the pros at Skylake Heating & Air to move forward with the installation of your HVAC system with security and confidence. Whether you just need the Manual J and D calculations, or you want us to use them to install the system of your dreams, contact us today!
