What is load calculation and how does it factor in to my new air conditioner?07/07/2016 If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in finding the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is improperly sized, it will impact your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation. Historically, a load calculation was discovered only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider various other factors to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Groves, the square footage and build of your home, the level of insulation, your roof size and type, the size and location of windows, your home’s sun exposure and your family’s habits and schedule. We aim to help you discover the air conditioner replacement that fits your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t always mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems: Because it won’t have to operate as long, an oversized system will continuously warm up and cool down. This causes more wear and tear on the system than necessary. It can also minimize productivity and raise utility bills. Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly. One key to your home’s comfort is creating proper airflow.
