homeowners reviewing load calculation

What is load calculation and how does it factor in to my new air conditioner?

When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a crucial step in making certain that you’re choosing the right system for your home. Every home has its own unique demands on a cooling system. Installing an improperly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility bills. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?

Our experts take into account many factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system your home needs. We look at factors such as: the environment of your town, square footage of your home, design, insulation levels, roof type, size and location of windows, sun exposure and the habits of and schedule of all the people inside the home.

We want to match you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always the best. A system that is larger than necessary could make a host of concerns.

  • It could cost you more money to use.
  • An oversized system doesn’t have to work as long so it will constantly be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your system.
  • A unit that doesn’t operate as long also doesn’t dehumidify the air, which could impact your comfort.
  • If your system isn’t big enough, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature.

Ensuring correct air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to be sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all running in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based only on square footage, and while that is a portion of the puzzle, there are a host of variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
