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 look at all the different options available. One of the first things, and perhaps the most important, 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 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 need. On the other side, 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 get the appropriately-sized air conditioner:

  • Keeping the suitable humidity – Air conditioners not only help to keep your indoor temps cool, but it also works to lessen humidity. If your system is outsized, chances 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 might keep up with cooling your house, you are making it work more frequently or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to be great for your utility bills. You may have saved on original costs for the equipment, but it won’t deliver savings in coming months.
  • Allowing appropriate cycling – If you pick a system that is too large for your needs, it will swiftly 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.
