Air Conditioning Air Heat Balance

The air heat balance determines the type of air conditioning unit and power rating necessary to provide cooling and heating based on your needs and environmental factors.

Professional installers know how to calculate the heat balance and therefore install the optimal air conditioning system based on your home or the area to be cooled / heated. Installing an unnecessarily powerful unit or an underpowered unit can be a costly mistake in terms of your energy bills, not to mention maintenance.

Calculating the ideal heat balance depends on several different elements, some of which are:

  • Glazing surface
  • Soil type (whether isolated or not)
  • Roofing (type, attic, no attic, insulation, etc.)
  • Exposed exterior walls / windows
  • Number of occupants
  • Location of curtains
  • Lighting type: fluorescent, incandescent, low energy
  • Number of electrical appliances normally in operation
