Heating & Cooling Load Calculations
Is bigger better?Not when it comes to your heating and cooling equipment. Oversized air conditioners cycle on and off quickly
Much of the same is true of heating equipment as well. Even though heating won't necessarily remove moisture, you have the same temperature and comfort control issues with short cylcles.
The solution is to carefully determine the heating and cooling loads that your home will have, size the HVAC equipment properly from there, and then design a duct system that will deliver the conditioned air in the correct quanitity to each room of the home.
All of our calculations are compliant with ACCA Manual J (room-by-room load calculations), Manual S (HVAC equipment sizing), and Manual D (duct sizing).
