When you own a business in North Augusta, Georgia, HVAC costs are bound to be one of your biggest budget items, especially true when air conditioning costs soar during the summer months. If you’re considering investing in a new HVAC system for your commercial building, you need to make sure yours operates efficiently and effectively to keep your costs as low as possible. Find out why accurate HVAC sizing is essential and learn how our team calculates commercial HVAC loads. 

Why Accurate HVAC Sizing Is Essential

As a business owner, you want to lower your costs as much as possible. If you’ve ever considered saving money by purchasing a smaller air conditioner, however, it’s important to understand why accurate HVAC sizing is essential.

An HVAC system that’s too small will constantly struggle to keep up, since it won’t be able to cool your building efficiently. That means its cycles could run much longer than necessary, and the added stress could cause frequent breakdowns.

In contrast, an HVAC system that’s too big will cool your commercial space faster than it’s designed to work. That often results in short-cycling, when the system turns on and shuts off frequently, often before it’s had a chance to address humidity issues. This can also lead to inefficiency and breakdowns, which will only cost you more in the long run.

How Our Team Performs Commercial Load Calculations

Most commercial are designed specifically for the space to optimize efficiency and keep costs low. At Doc Savage Heating and Air Conditioning, we use what’s known as the Manual J calculation method to assess your cooling needs as accurately as possible. This method takes into account the building’s size and construction materials, as well as its orientation and shade level.

Once we plug these numbers into the software program, we know exactly how much cooling power your commercial building needs. From there, we can design the optimal system for your business.
