What Size of Air Conditioner do I Need?

August 25, 2017

If you are in the market for a new air conditioner, it can be intimidating to examine all the different options you can get. One of the first things, and perhaps the most important, is to determine what size air conditioner you want to meet your home’s cooling demands. Efficiency is often top of mind, but it’s also important to make sure you get the right sized system that will also work effectively.

You want to make sure you have an air conditioner that reaches your home comfort needs. You want to ensure you aren’t spending money on a system that is larger than you need. On the other hand, you don’t want to try and cut corners by buying a smaller system and pushing it to work harder.

There are a few reasons you want to make sure to find the appropriately-sized air conditioner:

  • Keeping the appropriate humidity – Air conditioners not only support keeping your indoor space cool, but it also works to reduce humidity. If your system is outsized, probabilities are it will reach the desired temperature too quickly to assist with the humidity levels.
  • Maintaining energy bills – While a system that is too small could still be able to keep up with cooling your house, you are pushing it to work more frequently or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to benefit your energy costs. You may have saved on early costs for the equipment, but it won’t provide savings moving forward.
  • Allowing proper cycling – If you choose a system that is too large for your needs, it will quickly cool down your indoor space and shut off, not letting your air conditioner to run through the proper cycling. This can also impact your energy bills, because your air conditioner will be turning on and off relentlessly.
