What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are thinking about buying a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your present system, one of the first points to ponder is a load calculation.

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

Every home is distinct; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are crucial considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t wise to buy an air conditioner that is more than what you need for your home. The equipment will 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 may also lead to bad indoor air quality.

You also don’t want a model that is too small 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 operate more.

With a variety 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 handle on your own.
