If you are looking for a new air conditioner, it can be overwhelming 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 should get 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 confirm you have an air conditioner that meets 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 corners by buying a smaller system and driving 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 help to keep your indoor air cool, but it also works to lessen humidity. If your system is too large, odds are it will meet the desired temperature too rapidly to aide in the humidity levels.
- Maintaining energy costs – 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 energy bills. You may have saved on original costs for the equipment, but it won’t deliver savings moving forward.
- Allowing proper cycling – If you select a system that is too great for your home, it will quickly cool down your house and shut off, not allowing 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 relentlessly.
