What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are thinking about getting a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first things to consider is a load calculation.

What exactly does that entail? Basically, it comes down to being sure that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Buying the incorrect size or type can have a lot of consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it reduces its lifespan.

Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are crucial considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to get an air conditioner that is more than what’s required for your home. The equipment could cost more and you’ll be paying to use a system that is more than what you need. 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 bad indoor air quality.

You also don’t want a model that isn’t big enough and unable to keep up. Not only does this play a role in the cooling of your home during the warmer seasons, but it’ll also make the unit work more.

With a number of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to take care of on your own. The Expert team at TML Service Experts can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation factors in the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to figure out the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly provide 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 will also help you receive the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when making your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can provide will have a positive impact on your family’s budget. Our professionals can walk you through what you’ll need to live comfortably in your home and share some tidbits on how to decrease energy usage through a variety of features available.
