Room-by-Room Heat Loss and Gain Calculations
Energy advisors conduct heat loss and gain calculations for two key reasons: to identify areas of low insulation and to help ensure the most efficient sizing of furnaces and central air conditioners. Over-sized units almost always result in less-efficient heating and cooling. Not only is money wasted on unnecessarily large units, but this also leads to higher energy bills every month.
Heating and cooling load calculations conform with CSA F280 and result in:
Following these best practices can help homeowners and builders avoid the issues involved with HVAC equipment oversizing.
