What Size of Air Conditioner do I Need?

August 25, 2017

If you are getting ready for a new air conditioner, it can be a little daunting to examine all the different options you can get. One of the first things, and perhaps the most significant, is to identify what size air conditioner you want to meet your home’s cooling demands. Efficiency is often top of mind, but just as important is making sure you get the appropriately sized system that will also work effectively.

You want to make sure you have an air conditioner that meets your home comfort needs. You want to ensure you aren’t throwing money at a system that is larger than you really need for your space. On the other hand, you don’t want to try and cut costs by buying a smaller system and driving it to work harder.

There are several reasons you should make sure to get the appropriately-sized air conditioner:

  • Keeping the proper humidity – Air conditioners not only support keeping your indoor space cool, but it also works to lessen humidity. If your system is too large, probabilities are it will get to the desired temperature too rapidly to address the humidity levels.
  • Maintaining energy costs – While a system that is too small might keep up with cooling your indoor space, you are forcing it to work more regularly or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to be great for your energy bills. You may have saved on early costs for the equipment, but it won’t provide savings moving forward.
  • Allowing appropriate cycling – If you pick a system that is too large for your house, it will swiftly cool down your house and shut off, not permitting your air conditioner to run through the proper cycling. This also affects your energy bills, because your air conditioner will be turning on and off relentlessly.
