homeowners reviewing load calculation

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

When the time arrives for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by an expert is a critical step in making certain that you’re choosing the correct system for your home. Every home has its own unique demands on a cooling system. Installing an improperly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility bills. So what factors into a home’s load calculation?

Our professionals take into account many factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. We look at things 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 the people living inside the home.

We want to set you up with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always better. A system that is higher capacity than necessary can make a variety of problems.

  • It might cost you more money to operate.
  • An oversized system doesn’t have to run as long so it will constantly be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your unit.
  • A unit that doesn’t run as long also fails to dehumidify the air, which could diminish your comfort.
  • If your system isn’t big enough, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired 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 running 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 a host of variables we factor in to find the right products for your home.
