What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?

If you are thinking through buying a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your current system, one of the first points to assess is a load calculation. 

What exactly does that entail? Really, it comes down to ensuring that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Getting the wrong size or type can have a lot of effects from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it reduces its lifespan. 

Every home is unique; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are crucial considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t the most wise to buy an air conditioner that is more than needed for your home. The equipment can cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system will not properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to bad indoor air quality

You also don’t want a model that isn’t big enough and isn’t able to keep up. Not only does this effect the cooling of your home during the warmer times, but it’ll also make the unit work harder. 

With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to take care of on your own. The Expert team at Stevenson Service Experts can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation factors in the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to figure out the size and type of equipment you’ll need. 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 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 can also help you receive the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to think about utility costs when pondering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can give you will have a positive influence on your family’s budget. Our professionals can walk you through what you need to live comfortably in your home and share some ideas on how to decrease energy usage through a variety of features available. 

Whether you are in need of a new air conditioning system or looking to increase your home’s efficiency and comfort level, the team at Stevenson Service Experts in Columbus are happy to help. You can call us at 614-334-3192 or easily request an appointment with our online scheduler
