What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?
If you are thinking through purchasing a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your existing system, one of the first things to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that include? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Getting the incorrect size or type can have many consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it decreases 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 purchase an air conditioner that is more than what’s required for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to use a system that is more than what’s required. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which may also lead to bad indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too little and can’t to keep up. Not only does this play a role in the cooling of your home during the warmer seasons, but it’ll also make the unit run harder.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to begin. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Calverley Service Experts can offer 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 decide the size and type of equipment you need. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly offer an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even offer 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 should also help you get 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 provide will have a positive influence on your family’s budget.
