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 current system, one of the first items to ponder is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Basically, 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 implications from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it lowers its lifecycle.

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 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’s needed. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t 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 unable 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 more.

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. The Expert team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can offer a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation includes factors like the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to figure out the size and type of equipment you need. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately provide an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even provide you the best more accurate price of a new system.

Not only does this assessment help decide which system is best for you, but it can also help you receive the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to include utility costs when considering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can give you will have a positive influence on your family’s budget.
