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

If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a technician perform a load calculation is crucial in choosing the system that will work best for your home. All homes are specific in their cooling requirements. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will affect your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.

Originally, a load calculation was determined only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard many other steps to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Kingsville, the square footage and structure 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 aim to help you come across the air conditioner replacement that fits your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In reality, 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 consistently warm up and cool down. This causes more wear and tear on the system than normal.
  • It can also minimize efficiency and raise utility bills.
  • Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.

One key to your home’s comfort is creating proper airflow. Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC 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.
