Load calculation is used to help determine the proper size of equipment needed to heat your home comfortably and efficiently. One root cause of furnace failure is oversized equipment causing overheating and stressing of the heat exchanger making it unsafe to use. To eliminate the chance of future failures, we use the industry-leading, ACCA-Certified Manual-J Load Calculation Program to provide the most accurate assessment of your home. Every home is different; a true load calculation considers the thermal load placed on your home in relation to its orientation and position, the type of window and amount of sun exposure, the type of building materials of which your home is constructed, the square footage of rooms and the home and the habits of your family.

We can provide you with the information you need to decide the best course of action for your family’s safety, comfort and your budget, such as:
