What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

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

What exactly does that mean? Basically, it comes down to being sure that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Buying the improper size or type can have a variety of implications from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it decreases its lifespan.

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 isn’t wise to purchase an air conditioner that is more than needed 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 won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to poor indoor air quality.

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

With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be a bear to know where to begin. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to take care of on your own. The Expert team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can give you 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 figure out the size and type of equipment you need. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t correctly 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 determine which system is best for you, but it will also help you get the extra savings of high-efficiency products.
