With improved living standards and rising ambient temperatures, human comfort is the most significant metric in the current environment. Electric air conditioning equipment is not recommended for large structures since it consumes a lot of electricity and has a short lifespan. Central air conditioning delivers greater dependability as well as fewer maintenance costs. Centralized air conditioning systems are installed in large buildings including commercial complexes, auditoriums, and office towers. With the increase in the students enrolled year after year, research and teaching institutions also demand comfort ability. The successful design of a refrigeration unit reduces electricity usage, lowers capital costs, and aids in the improvement the premises aesthetically. The research work illustrates about load of refrigeration evaluation in a climatic circumstance using the CLTD method. The MS-Excel tool can simply express the calculation of refrigeration load from things like occupancy gain of heat, illumination gain of heat, penetration and aeration gain of heat. The application is able to compute the refrigeration load from walls and roofs. The estimated figures were compared to the standard statistics compiled by the ASHRAE Fundamental Hand Books, and the findings were found to be validated.
