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 overwhelming to look at all the different options out there. One of the first things, and perhaps the most critical, is to determine what size air conditioner you should get to meet your home’s cooling needs. Efficiency is often top of mind, but it’s also important to make 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 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 should make sure to find 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 reduce humidity. If your system is too big, chances are it will reach the desired temperature too fast to aide in the humidity levels.
  • Maintaining utility bills – While a system that is too small could still be able to keep up with cooling your home, you are making it work more often or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to help your energy costs. You may have saved on early costs for the equipment, but it won’t provide savings down the road.
  • Allowing appropriate cycling – If you select a system that is too large for your house, it will rapidly cool down your home 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 all the time.
