What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?
If you are considering purchasing a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your current system, one of the first items to assess is a load calculation.
What exactly does that entail? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Buying the improper size or type can have a variety of effects from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it lowers its lifecycle.
Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are important considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It isn’t the most wise to get an air conditioner that is bigger than what’s required for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to run a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to poor indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too little and unable to keep up. Not only does this play a role in the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit work more.
With a variety of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to start. Luckily, this isn’t something you need to take care of on your own. The Expert team at Peitz Service Experts can offer 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 decide the size and type of equipment you’ll need. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly 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 figure out 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 think about utility costs when pondering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can provide will have a positive impact on your family’s budget. Our team can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some thoughts on how to decrease energy usage through various features available.
