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 out there. One of the first things, and perhaps the most significant, is to determine what size air conditioner you should get to meet your home’s cooling demands. 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 ensure 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 actually need. On the other side, you don’t want to try and cut costs by buying a smaller system and driving it to work harder.

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

  • Keeping the proper humidity – Air conditioners not only support keeping your indoor space cool, but it also works to reduce humidity. If your system is too large, probabilities are it will reach the desired temperature too quickly to address the humidity levels.
  • Maintaining energy bills – While a system that is too small might keep up with cooling your indoor space, you are pushing it to work more frequently or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to help your energy costs. You may have saved on initial costs for the equipment, but it won’t offer savings down the road.
  • Allowing accurate cycling – If you pick a system that is too great for your home, it will rapidly cool down your home 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.
