Load Calculation vs Square Footage
According to the U.S. Department of Energy,
“Oversizing HVAC equipment leads to reduced efficiency, increased wear on equipment, and, for the case of air conditioners and heat pumps, increased indoor humidity during summer months. Despite this, most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment is planned without utilizing sophisticated load calculations, and thus is often oversized. Installers tend to oversize equipment to ensure that there will be ample cooling and reduce the risk of a callback requiring a complete system change out.”
