What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are considering getting a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first things to ponder is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get properly-sized system for your home. Buying the incorrect size or type can have a variety of effects from the inability to keep your house cool to operating so hard that it decreases its lifecycle.

Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to get an air conditioner that is larger than what’s required for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to use a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to decreased indoor air quality.

You also don’t want a model that is too little and can’t to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer seasons, but it’ll also make the unit work harder.

With a variety of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own.
