What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are thinking about purchasing a new air conditioner or looking closer at the performance of your current system, one of the first things to consider is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Basically, it comes down to being sure that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Buying the incorrect size or type can have many consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to operating so hard that it lowers its lifespan.

Every home is distinct; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to purchase an air conditioner that is more than needed for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what’s required. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system will not properly dehumidify the air which may also lead to bad 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 times, but it’ll also make the unit operate more.

With a number of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to take care of on your own. The Expert team at Stark Services can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation includes factors like the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to determine the size and type of equipment you’ll need. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t correctly provide an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even give you the best more accurate price of a new system.

Not only does this assessment help figure out which system is best for you, but it will also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to include utility costs when making your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can offer will have a positive impact on your family’s budget. Our professionals can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some tidbits on how to decrease energy usage through various features available.
