What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?
If you are thinking through buying a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your existing system, one of the first things to assess is a load calculation.
What exactly does that entail? Basically, it comes down to making sure that you get properly-sized system for your home. Buying the wrong size or type can have a lot of implications from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it decreases its life.
Every home is distinct; 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 larger than needed 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 reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to decreased indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too little and can’t to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit work tougher.
With a variety of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Luckily, this isn’t something you need to handle on your own. The Expert team at Knochelmann 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 needed. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately give you an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even provide 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 see 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 give you will have a positive effect on your family’s budget.
