Commercial Heat Load Calculations

Often times, commercial buildings have large open spaces or rooms similar in design and size. This makes the design of the HVAC system much simpler. A commercial load calculation helps gauge the correct HVAC unit required to run efficiently.

Residential Heat Load Calculations

However, when it comes to residential buildings, you find the most complex layouts from room to room, with the highest degree of variety. The HVAC system will, therefore, need to be more complex to ensure proper temperature regulation from room to room, and the harder it will be to gauge this system. Add to this the fact that alongside bedrooms you find kitchens, living rooms with fireplaces, and all other sorts of variables, and the importance of getting a professional heat load calculation is shown even more.

Difference between heat load calculations

Another important difference between commercial and residential buildings is that the former is used normally only during working hours, while the latter is used to live in. This has two important implications. In residential buildings, the occupants will be sleeping, and you will also find young children and older people dwelling there as well. Because of this, it is important that the quality of the air is at its healthiest, and also that the temperature does not become too cold or too hot. A professional heat load calculation is therefore recommended for residential buildings.
