What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are thinking about buying 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 making sure that you get properly-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 life.

Every home is distinct; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are important considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t wise to buy an air conditioner that is more than what you need for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to run 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 could 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 times, but it’ll also make the unit operate more.

With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating 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.
