What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are thinking through getting a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your existing system, one of the first items to assess is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Really, it comes down to being sure that you get properly-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 operating so hard that it lowers its life.

Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to purchase an air conditioner that is more than what you need for your home. The equipment could cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which may also lead to decreased 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 effect the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit operate tougher.

With a variety of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to handle on your own.
