What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

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

What exactly does that include? Basically, it comes down to making sure that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Getting the improper size or type can have a variety of effects from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it lowers its life.

Every home is distinct; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t the most wise to get an air conditioner that is larger than what you need for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to use a system that is more than what’s needed. Air conditioners also help to lower humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to poor indoor air quality.

You also don’t want a model that isn’t big enough and can’t to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit work tougher.

With a number of different models and sizes, it can be a bear to know where to begin. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own.
