HVAC load calculation is used to determine the amount of heating and cooling your home needs, measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs). Knowing how many BTUs a particular space requires can help you make sure you are installing properly sized AC or heating units to keep your home comfortable more efficiently.
An improperly sized unit can lead to your home not reaching comfortable temperatures if it’s too small or your utility bills being significantly higher if it’s too big. The experts at Method Air can help you understand what size heating or AC unit your home needs and get it installed in no time!
Why You Need a Professional Heat Load Calculator
While it is simple to get a rough estimate of your home’s BTUs, the formula does not take into account the ceiling heights of various rooms, higher heat-producing areas like kitchens and laundry rooms, insulation, or additional spaces like attics and basements. There are several factors that could throw off the calculations. That’s why it’s always best to reach out to a professional for more accurate calculations.
The process of calculating your HVAC unit size is lengthy and complicated. The professionals at Method Air are trained in using specialized ACCA-approved software from Wrightsoft to ensure the most accurate calculations.
