What is load calculation and how does it factor in to my new air conditioner?07/07/2016 If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is crucial in picking the system that will work best for your home. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation. Originally, a load calculation was conducted only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider several other steps to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Reeds Spring, the square footage and design 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 would love to help you discover the air conditioner replacement that completes your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. Actually, if your system is too oversized for your home, you could have a lot of problems: Because it won’t have to operate as long, an oversized system will consistently warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than necessary. It can also decrease productivity and raise utility bills. Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly. One key to your home’s comfort is maintaining quality airflow.
