What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?
If you are thinking about getting a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your current system, one of the first items to assess is a load calculation.
What exactly does that include? Essentially, it comes down to being sure that you get properly-sized system for your home. Buying the improper size or type can have a variety of consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it decreases its lifespan.
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 isn’t wise to get an air conditioner that is bigger than what’s required for your home. The equipment could cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what’s required. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to poor 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 play a role in the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit work tougher.
With a variety of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Luckily, this isn’t something you need to handle on your own.
