What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are thinking through buying a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your present system, one of the first points to consider is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Really, it comes down to ensuring that you get properly-sized system for your home. Getting the wrong size or type can have a variety of effects from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it reduces its life.

Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are crucial considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to get an air conditioner that is bigger than what’s required for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to run a system that is more than what’s needed. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system will not properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to bad indoor air quality.

You also don’t want a model that is too small and isn’t able to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit operate harder.

With a number of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Falso Service Experts can give you a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to determine the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t correctly give you 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 decide which system is best for you, but it should also help you get the extra savings of high-efficiency products.
