What Size of Air Conditioner do I Need?

August 25, 2017

If you are looking for a new air conditioner, it can be overwhelming to review all the different options out there. One of the first things, and perhaps the most critical, is to identify what size air conditioner you want 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 ensure you have an air conditioner that reaches your home comfort needs. You want to ensure you aren’t throwing money at 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 forcing it to work harder.

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

  • Keeping the suitable humidity – Air conditioners not only support keeping your indoor air cool, but it also works to reduce humidity. If your system is too big, odds are it will meet the desired temperature too rapidly to address the humidity levels.
  • Maintaining utility bills – While a system that is too small might keep up with cooling your indoor space, you are making it work more frequently or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to help your energy bills. You may have saved on original costs for the equipment, but it won’t deliver savings down the road.
  • Allowing accurate cycling – If you choose a system that is too great for your home, it will quickly cool down your indoor space and shut off, not letting 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 constantly.
