If you are looking for a new air conditioner, it can be overwhelming to look at all the different options you can get. One of the first things, and perhaps the most significant, is to understand what size air conditioner you need 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 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 expenses by buying a smaller system and forcing 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 suitable humidity – Air conditioners not only help to keep your indoor space cool, but it also works to decrease humidity. If your system is outsized, odds are it will reach the desired temperature too quickly to assist with the humidity levels.
- Maintaining energy costs – While a system that is too small could 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 help your energy costs. You may have saved on original costs for the equipment, but it won’t provide savings in coming months.
- Allowing proper cycling – If you select a system that is too big for your needs, it will rapidly 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 constantly.
