What Size of Air Conditioner do I Need?

August 25, 2017

If you are looking for a new air conditioner, it can be overwhelming to review 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 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 paying for a system that is larger than you need. On the other side, you don’t want to try and cut costs by buying a smaller system and forcing it to work harder.

There are a few reasons you want to make sure to get the appropriately-sized air conditioner:

  • Keeping the appropriate humidity – Air conditioners not only help to keep your indoor space cool, but it also works to decrease humidity. If your system is outsized, probabilities are it will reach the desired temperature too rapidly to address the humidity levels.
  • Maintaining energy costs – While a system that is too small could still be able to keep up with cooling your home, you are pushing it to work more often or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to benefit your utility bills. You may have saved on original costs for the equipment, but it won’t offer savings moving forward.
  • Allowing appropriate cycling – If you choose a system that is too great for your needs, it will quickly cool down your house and shut off, not allowing 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.
