What is load calculation and how does it factor in to my new air conditioner?07/07/2016 If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in choosing the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are unique in their cooling requirements. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will impact your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation. Historically, a load calculation was conducted only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard several other components to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Greenville, the square footage and structure of your home, the level of insulation, your roof size and type, the size and location of windows, your home’s sun exposure and your family’s habits and schedule. We would love to help you find the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t always mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems: Because it won’t have to operate as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than need-be. It can also minimize effectiveness and raise utility bills. Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly. One key to your home’s comfort is maintaining decent airflow.
