What is “Manual J” residential load calculation?

Developed by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), a Manual J‌ residential load calculation determines how much heating or cooling capacity your home needs, and the right equipment to do it.

The calculation is based on an array of factors:

  • Ductwork
  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Occupants
  • Appliances
  • And much more.

The layout of your house also comes into play, as each room’s heating and cooling factors (and how they affect each other)‌ are unique.

Why do I need a residential load calculation?

Having the right-sized unit is crucial to heating or cooling efficiency. However, having a unit that’s too large can also be a problem. As a result, this significantly shortens the lifespan of your HVAC‌ equipment.

Thus, that’s why it’s important to have a professional perform your Manual J load calculation so that your home has the right-sized equipment. Consequently, we’ll be able to assess the proper equipment needed to help ensure your whole house is comfortable and safe.
