homeowners reviewing load calculation

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

If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in picking the system that will work best for your house. All homes are unique in their cooling demands. If your system is improperly sized, it will affect your comfort and raise your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.

Historically, a load calculation was discovered only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider several other components to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in East Hanover, 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 discover the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t always 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 creates more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
  • It can also decrease effectiveness and raise utility bills.
  • Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
