If you are looking for a new air conditioner, it can be intimidating to review all the different options out there. One of the first things, and perhaps the most critical, is to determine what size air conditioner you should get to meet your home’s cooling needs. Efficiency is often top of mind, but just as important is making sure you get the correctly sized system that will also work effectively.
You want to make sure you have an air conditioner that matches your home comfort needs. You want to ensure you aren’t spending money on a system that is larger than you actually need. On the other hand, you don’t want to try and cut expenses by buying a smaller system and pushing it to work harder.
There are a variety of reasons you will want to make sure to find the appropriately-sized air conditioner:
- Keeping the proper humidity – Air conditioners not only support keeping your indoor air cool, but it also works to reduce humidity. If your system is too large, chances are it will meet the desired temperature too rapidly to aide in the humidity levels.
- Maintaining energy costs – While a system that is too small might keep up with cooling your home, you are making it work more frequently or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to help your utility bills. You may have saved on initial costs for the equipment, but it won’t deliver savings in coming months.
- Allowing appropriate cycling – If you select a system that is too large for your needs, it will quickly cool down your house and shut off, not allowing your air conditioner to run through the proper cycling. This impacts your energy bills, because your air conditioner will be turning on and off constantly.
