homeowners reviewing load calculation

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

When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by an expert is an important step in making sure you’re picking the best system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an improperly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility expenses. So what goes into a home’s load calculation?

Our pros take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. We look at things 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 all the people 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 larger than necessary could create a host of concerns.

  • It might cost you more money to operate.
  • An oversized system doesn’t have to work 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 operate as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which may impact your comfort.
  • If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the set temperature.

Ensuring correct air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to be sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all running in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based only 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.
