What size air conditioner do I need? Published on August 25, 2017 If you are in the market for a new air conditioner, it can be intimidating to look at all the different options out there. One of the first things, and perhaps the most critical, is to understand what size air conditioner you need to meet your home’s cooling requirements. Efficiency is often top of mind, but just as important is making sure you get the appropriately 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 throwing money at a system that is larger than you actually need. On the flip side, you don’t want to try and cut costs by buying a smaller system and driving it to work harder. There are a variety of reasons you want to make sure to get the appropriately-sized air conditioner: Keeping the suitable humidity – Air conditioners not only support keeping your indoor air cool, but it also works to lessen humidity. If your system is too big, probabilities are it will get to the desired temperature too fast to address the humidity levels. Maintaining energy bills – While a system that is too small might keep up with cooling your house, you are pushing it to work more often or possibly constantly. This isn’t going to help your energy bills. You may have saved on original costs for the equipment, but it won’t deliver savings in coming months. Allowing accurate cycling – If you select a system that is too large for your needs, it will quickly cool down your indoor space and shut off, not permitting 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.
