What Size of Air Conditioner do I Need?

August 25, 2017

If you are looking for a new air conditioner, it can be a little daunting to review all the different options you can get. One of the first things, and perhaps the most important, is to identify what size air conditioner you should get to meet your home’s cooling requirements. Efficiency is often top of mind, but just as important is making sure you get the right 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 need. On the flip side, you don’t want to try and cut expenses by buying a smaller system and driving it to work harder.

There are a variety of reasons you should make sure to purchase the appropriately-sized air conditioner:

  • Keeping the proper humidity – Air conditioners not only help to keep your indoor air cool, but it also works to reduce humidity. If your system is too large, probabilities are it will reach the desired temperature too rapidly to assist with the humidity levels.
  • Maintaining energy bills – While a system that is too small may still be able to keep up with cooling your home, you are pushing it to work more regularly or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to benefit your utility bills. You may have saved on original costs for the equipment, but it won’t offer savings in coming months.
  • Allowing proper cycling – If you pick a system that is too big 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 impacts your energy bills, because your air conditioner will be turning on and off relentlessly.
