What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

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

What exactly does that include? Essentially, it comes down to being sure that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Getting the improper size or type can have many implications from the inability to keep your house cool to running 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 important considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t wise to buy an air conditioner that is bigger than needed for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to lower humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to decreased indoor air quality

You also don’t want a model that is too little 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 harder. 

With a number of different models and sizes, it can be a bear to know where to start. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Stevenson Service Experts can give you 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 you need. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately give you an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even give you the best more accurate price of a new system. 

Not only does this assessment help determine which system is best for you, but it will also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to think about utility costs when considering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can give you will have a positive impact on your family’s budget. Our experts can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some tidbits on how to lower energy usage through a number of features available.
