What is load calculation and how does it factor in to my new air conditioner?07/07/2016 If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is crucial in choosing the system that will work best for your home. All homes are unique in their cooling demands. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation. Historically, a load calculation was conducted only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include various other factors to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in La Puente, 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 aim to help you discover the air conditioner replacement that completes your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems: Because it won’t have to function as long, an oversized system will continuously warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than normal. It can also decrease efficiency and raise utility bills. Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly. One key to your home’s comfort is creating proper airflow.
