What is load calculation and how does it factor in to my new air conditioner?07/07/2016 If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in picking the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is improperly sized, it will impact your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation. Originally, a load calculation was discovered only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard various other steps to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Cape Coral, the square footage and build 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 would love to help you come across the air conditioner replacement that fits your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is hefty 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 operate as long, an oversized system will continuously warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than necessary. It can also decrease efficiency and raise utility bills. Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly. One key to your home’s comfort is creating proper airflow.
