What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are considering purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your present system, one of the first points to assess is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Purchasing the wrong size or type can have a lot of effects from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it lowers its life.

Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are important considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to purchase an air conditioner that is more than what you need for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system will not properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to poor indoor air quality.

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

With a number of different models and sizes, it can be a bear to know where to start. Luckily, this isn’t something you need to handle 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 does not provide this detailed analysis can’t correctly give you an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even offer 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 see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when pondering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can give you will have a positive influence on your family’s budget.
