What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

If you are thinking through getting a new air conditioner or looking closer at the performance of your present system, one of the first points to ponder is a load calculation. 

What exactly does that entail? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Buying the incorrect size or type can have a lot of implications from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it lowers its lifespan. 

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 wise to buy an air conditioner that is more than needed for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what’s required. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system will not properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to poor indoor air quality

You also don’t want a model that is too little and unable to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit work more. 

With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to begin. 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 needed. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t correctly provide an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even provide you the best more accurate price of a new system. 

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