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 understand what size air conditioner you should get to meet your home’s cooling requirements. 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 spending money on a system that is larger than you need. On the flip side, you don’t want to try and cut expenses by buying a smaller system and forcing it to work harder.

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

  • Keeping the proper humidity – Air conditioners not only help to keep your indoor air cool, but it also works to decrease humidity. If your system is outsized, probabilities are it will meet 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 house, you are pushing it to work more frequently 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 offer savings down the road.
  • Allowing proper 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.
