What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are thinking through getting a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your existing system, one of the first things to ponder is a load calculation.

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

Every home is unique; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are important considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t wise to purchase an air conditioner that is larger than what’s required for your home. The equipment could cost more and you’ll be paying to run a system that is more than what’s needed. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system will not 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 play a role in the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit run tougher.

With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Lucky for you, 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.
