Cooling load

cooling load

[′kül·iŋ ‚lōd]
(mechanical engineering)
The total amount of heat energy that must be removed from a system by a cooling mechanism in a unit time, equal to the rate at which heat is generated by people, machinery, and processes, plus the net flow of heat into the system not associated with the cooling machinery.

Cooling load

The amount of heat generated within a building space from occupants, electrical equipment, artificial lighting, and solar radiation that the HVAC system must remove.

cooling load

The amount of heat that must be removed from a building to maintain a comfortable temperature for its occupants.
