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 imperative in finding the system that will work best for your house. All homes are unique in their cooling needs. If your system is improperly sized, it will affect your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation. Originally, a load calculation was discovered only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include several other factors to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Litchfield Park, the square footage and structure 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 want to help you come across the air conditioner replacement that completes your home. If your system is very small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too big for your home, you could have a lot of problems: Because it won’t have to function as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This causes more wear and tear on the system than normal. It can also minimize productivity and raise utility bills. Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly. One key to your home’s comfort is maintaining quality airflow.
