The Importance of Load Calculation

December 21st, 2020

When your old heater was installed, was it sized correctly? Did a professional perform a load calculation? If you don’t know what load calculation is, it’s okay. We don’t expect homeowners to be so familiar with HVAC services that they’d understand the complicated math behind these kinds of things. Basically, when a heater is being set up in a home, it needs to accurately be sized according to how much air exists inside the house. The larger the home, the more volume of air the heater needs to be able to heat. It’s that simple!

When it comes to a heating installation in Boerne, TX, you can’t get through it properly without load calculation. If you’d been thinking about signing up with the amateur down the street, we’d like to use this moment to steer you away from that. We perform load calculations on every install we make, so you know we’re the real deal.
