What is load calculation and how does it factor in to my new air conditioner?

When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a crucial step in making certain that you’re selecting the correct system for your home. Every home has its own unique demands on a cooling system. Installing an inappropriately sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility expenses. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?

Our professionals take into account many factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system your home needs. We look at factors such as: the weather of your town, square footage of your home, design, insulation levels, roof type, size and location of windows, sun exposure and the habits of and schedule of everyone inside the home.

We want to match you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always the best. A system that is larger than necessary could create a number of concerns.

  • It could cost you more money to operate.
  • An oversized system doesn’t have to work as long so it will continuously be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your system.
  • A unit that doesn’t work as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which might affect your comfort.
  • If your system is too little, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the set temperature.

Ensuring correct air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to make sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all operating in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based solely on square footage, and while that is a portion of the puzzle, there are many variables we factor in to find the correct products for your home.
