What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

If you are thinking through purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first items to ponder is a load calculation. 

What exactly does that include? Really, it comes down to making sure that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Getting the improper 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 lifecycle. 

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 isn’t the most wise to get an air conditioner that is bigger than what’s required for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to run a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to lower humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to bad 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 seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit run more. 

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 handle on your own. The Expert team at Stevenson Service Experts can offer a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to decide the size and type of equipment you’ll need. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t correctly provide an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even offer you the best more accurate price of a new system. 

Not only does this assessment help figure out which system is best for you, but it should also help you receive the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when considering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can provide will have a positive influence on your family’s budget. Our team can walk you through what you’ll need to live comfortably in your home and share some tidbits on how to reduce energy usage through various features available.
