Load Calculations

Is Your System Too Small to Handle the Capacity of Your Home’s Heating and Cooling Needs?

Using Load Calculating to Determine the Size of Your HVAC Needs

Having a heating or cooling system that is too small – or too large – for the size of your home may prevent it from heating and cooling effectively. In fact, you may be sucking a lot of energy out of your home, while causing your system to work harder and more often to meet the demands of your comfort. This can also lead to the need for service repairs and maintenance.

If you want to extend the life of your system, while saving money on your utility bills, it is important to maximize efficiency. This can be done by first determining the capacity of your HVAC system. We call this “Load Calculating”. In layman’s terms, load calculating is the process by which Comfort First comes to measure the size of your home, assess potential areas in which air flow may be lost and calculate the size of your heating and cooling units in relation to your home’s square footage. Drafty windows, doors, attics and basements are all common culprits for lost air flow. We have special tools and technology that we use to give you precise readings.

Why You Should Use Load Calculating

Consider this: If your home were a live being, the HVAC system would be the heart of your home. If your heart is clogged or has to work on overdrive to fuel your body, it can lead to failure or health problems. It can also be very costly to repair. Just like your own body, your home must have a “checkup” at least once annually, and the load calculating is one way you can greatly improve the efficiency of your home.

What’s more, you can stretch your heating and cooling dollars further if you are not wasting money on lost air through the drafty cracks and crevices you may not even realize are there. Not only will you provide more comfort to your family, you will enjoy the savings on your monthly energy bills.

Comfort First does provide load calculations with each new installation, but if your building is in need of upgrades, this is one highly recommended way to improve efficiency now.
