LOAD CALCULATIONS AND DUCT DESIGN
BECT performs load calculations and residential duct design. Load calculations and duct design are required for every job as per the California Energy code.
Why is it important to do a load calculation and duct sizing before installing your HVAC system?
In order to adequately calculate the correct amount of air flow you need in relation to your HVAC system, you need to perform a load calculation. The load calculation determines the sizing and the duct design determines the layout of your duct system so that is compatible to your HVAC system, optimizing its efficiency. Without a load calculation, there is a high chance that your calculations were incorrect and your house will be less comfortable and have higher operating costs (it just won’t work as well).
