Pictured Above. Outside of home when project started.
Originally the home had a single 5 Ton Split Gas AC System on it. The duct-work connected to an underground return duct, and a supply trunk in the hallway soffit. The home was purchased and the interior was completely gutted. Plans were then drawn up, expanding the area of the home from 2200 square feet to 3100 square feet. New energy efficient windows were installed, and the walls and attic were insulated with spray foam. These changes to the shell of the building made performing a load calculation necessary to determine the size of equipment needed. The relevant data was collected, and the home was modeled in Wrightsoft load calculation software. The results of the load calculation revealed that the size of air conditioner needed for the home was going to be a 4-ton unit for the east side and a 3-ton unit for the west side. Wrightsoft also sized the duct system for the home.
