What is load calculation and how does it factor in to my new air conditioner?

July 07, 2016

If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is crucial in choosing the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are specific in their cooling requirements. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.

Historically, a load calculation was conducted only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include several other factors to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Muldrow, 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 want to help you find the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t always mean it’s better. Actually, if your system is too oversized for your home, you could have a lot of problems:

  • Because it won’t have to function as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than necessary.
  • It can also minimize efficiency and raise utility bills.
  • Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.

One key to your home’s comfort is creating proper airflow. Air Service Co. can help with a room-by-room load calculation. We will make sure all components of your system—your air conditioner, ductwork and registers—are working together to keep you comfortable.
