What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

July 28, 2017

If you are considering getting a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your existing system, one of the first points to assess is a load calculation.

What exactly does that include? Really, it comes down to making sure that you get properly-sized system for your home. Purchasing the wrong size or type can have a variety of consequences from the inability to keep your house cool to operating so hard that it reduces its lifespan.

Every home is different; 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 get an air conditioner that is more than what’s required for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to use a system that is more than what’s needed. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to bad indoor air quality.

You also don’t want a model that is too little and unable 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 a bear to know where to begin. Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to handle on your own. The Expert team at Winnipeg Supply Service Experts can offer 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 decide the size and type of equipment you need. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately 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 determine which system is best for you, but it can also help you get the extra savings of high-efficiency products.
