Columbus Furnace Guide: Load Calculation

Quality Air Background element

Some people in Columbus might not know how important a load calculation is when installing a furnace in their Columbus home. There are a number of benefits to this process that we will explain below. We’ll also talk about what a load calculation exactly is.

What Is a Load Calculation?

Load calculation is a measurement that is taken of your home to determine exactly how much heating and cooling your home requires. During the load calculation process, the contractor will measure the total volume of air that is in your house and determine how efficient your insulation is. Other factors that they will consider are: local climate, shape and orientation of your home, how many windows you have, the number of occupants and more.

Furnace Size Problems

One of the most common furnace problems that we see in Columbus is that the furnace isn’t the right size for the home. Oftentimes, the furnace is too big for the home. Years ago, before people made their homes as insulated and air tight as they are now, you could get away with having a larger furnace because so much of the heated air was lost. Now that homes have better insulation, it can cause problems:

  • Inefficiency – When your furnace is too big, it heats up your home very quickly and then shuts off. When the temperature drops, it has to turn on again and heat up the home. This is an inefficient way to run a furnace.
  • Temperature swings – This causes wide swings in temperatures and hot and cold spots in your home.
  • Humidity – When the furnace doesn’t run for a long period of time, the air can become stuffy or clammy.
  • Wear and tear – All the stopping and starting causes extra wear and tear on your furnace.

Benefits Of Having A Load Calculation Performed

As you are probably quickly realizing, there are a number of benefits of having a load calculation taken of your home.

  • Greater efficiency – When your furnace is the right size for your home, it doesn’t have to work as hard to heat your home.
  • Greater comfort – You won’t see the drastic swings in temperature that a large furnace would cause in your home.
  • Long life – When your furnace doesn’t constantly cycle on and off, its life can potentially be extended.
