Air Conditioning Heat Load Calculation (Room & Building estimate)
It's free and it only
takes a minute
The calculation estimate formulas used here are just rough approximations to simplify

the total heat load calculations and quickly select an air conditioning unit capable of
providing the necessary cooling of the room or space.

--------------------- QUICK HEAT LOAD CALCULATION ESTIMATE -------------------

Typical Room or Small Office:

Space Heat Load = Cooling Space Dimensions x 4

Space Heat Load = Room Length (ft) x Room Width (ft) x Room Height (ft) x 4

Space Heat Load = L x W x H x 4

Occupant Load = 600 BTU/person

Total Heat Load = Space Heat Load + Occupant Load

------------------- DETAILED HEAT LOAD CALCULATION ESTIMATE ------------------

1 Btu (British thermal unit) 0


1 Btu = energy required to cool or heat 1 pound of water by 1 degree Fahrenheit
