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 current system, one of the first things to assess is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Really, it comes down to making sure that you get properly-sized system for your home. Getting the wrong size or type can have a variety of implications from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it decreases 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 needed for your home. The equipment could cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what’s needed. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which could 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 times, but it’ll also make the unit operate tougher.

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