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 review all the different options available. One of the first things, and perhaps the most critical, 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 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 paying for a system that is larger than you really need for your space. On the other hand, you don’t want to try and cut costs 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 reduce humidity. If your system is too big, probabilities are it will reach the desired temperature too fast to address the humidity levels.
  • Maintaining energy costs – While a system that is too small might keep up with cooling your indoor space, you are forcing it to work more regularly or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to help your energy bills. You may have saved on early costs for the equipment, but it won’t offer savings moving forward.
  • Allowing proper cycling – If you pick a system that is too great 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 also affects your energy bills, because your air conditioner will be turning on and off relentlessly.
