What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

If you are thinking about buying a new air conditioner or looking closer at the performance of your present system, one of the first things to consider is a load calculation. 

What exactly does that include? Basically, it comes down to making sure that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Getting the incorrect size or type can have a lot of consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to operating so hard that it decreases its lifecycle. 

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 buy an air conditioner that is bigger than what’s required for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what’s needed. Air conditioners also help to lower humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to poor indoor air quality

You also don’t want a model that is too little and unable to keep up. Not only does this play a role in the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit run tougher. 

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 tackle on your own. The Expert team at Stevenson Service Experts can give you 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 correctly offer 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 get the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to think about utility costs when making your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can offer will have a positive influence on your family’s budget. Our experts can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some tidbits on how to lower energy usage through a number of features available.
