What is an Air Conditioning Load Calculation?
If you are considering purchasing a new air conditioner or looking in to the performance of your present system, one of the first items to assess is a load calculation.
What exactly does that mean? Essentially, it comes down to ensuring that you get correctly-sized system for your home. Buying the improper size or type can have many effects from the inability to keep your house cool to running so hard that it reduces its lifecycle.
Every home is different; 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 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 needed. Air conditioners also help to decrease humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which can also lead to poor 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 effect the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit run harder.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to turn for answers. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Peachtree Service Experts can give you 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 determine the size and type of equipment you’ll need. Any company that won’t provide this detailed analysis can’t correctly offer an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even give 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 will also help you receive the extra savings of high-efficiency products.
