What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?
If you are considering purchasing a new air conditioner or looking closer at the performance of your current system, one of the first items to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that mean? Really, it comes down to ensuring that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Purchasing the incorrect size or type can have a variety of effects from the inability to keep your house cool to operating so hard that it decreases its lifecycle.
Every home is distinct; 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 wise to purchase 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’s required. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system can’t properly dehumidify the air which may also lead to decreased indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too little and isn’t able 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 operate tougher.
With a variety of different models and sizes, it can be intimidating to know where to turn for answers. Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Matz-Rightway can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to figure out the size and type of equipment you need. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t appropriately provide 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 decide which system is best for you, but it can also help you get the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in 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 experts can walk you through what you need to live comfortably in your home and share some thoughts on how to decrease energy usage through a number of features available.
