homeowners reviewing load calculation

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

When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by an expert is a crucial step in making certain that you’re choosing the best system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will hurt your comfort, and your utility expenses. So what goes into a home’s load calculation?

Our experts 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 climate 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 pair you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always ideal. A system that is larger than necessary could generate a variety of concerns.

  • It may cost you more money to use.
  • 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 unit.
  • A unit that doesn’t run as long also doesn’t dehumidify the air, which could impact your comfort.
  • If your system isn’t big enough, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature.

Ensuring proper 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 operating 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.
