Load Calculation Question
When trying to get a good handle on my loads, when the power factor is less than 1.0 should I use the "VA" reading rather than the Watts reading to accurately calculate my loads. For instance a fireplace fan that I use often has a power factor of .49 so my VA reading is about 80 VA but my watts reading is about 40 watts. Thats a big difference when trying to determine my load to accurately size my system. Thanks for any help.
