What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are considering getting a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your present system, one of the first things to assess is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Basically, it comes down to making sure that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Getting the incorrect size or type can have a variety of implications from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it reduces its life.

Every home is unique; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t wise to get an air conditioner that is larger than what you need for your home. The equipment could cost more and you’ll be paying to run a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to lower humidity levels in the home and an oversized system will not properly dehumidify the air which may also lead to bad indoor air quality.

You also don’t want a model that is too little and unable to keep up. Not only does this effect the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit run more.

With a variety of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to begin. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to determine the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately provide an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even give you the best more accurate price of a new system.

Not only does this assessment help figure out which system is best for you, but it should also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when making your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can provide will have a positive impact on your family’s budget.
