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 a pro is a crucial step in making sure you’re selecting the right system for your home. Every home has its own individual demands on a cooling system. Installing an improperly sized system will negatively affect your comfort, and your utility bills. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?

Our professionals take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. We look at aspects such as: the environment 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 bigger than necessary can make a host of concerns.

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

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