If you’re ready to install a new HVAC unit, there are a number of
factors to consider—and one of the most important is whether the
unit is the correct size for your home. While getting the biggest
HVAC system available may seem like a safe way to go, this is not the case. Continue
reading for a look at why size matters when it comes to choosing a new
air conditioning unit.
Choosing the right sized HVAC unit for your home will help to ensure maximum
comfort for your family. When your unit is the correct size, it will cool
or heat your house without cycling on and off too frequently, running
constantly, or creating hot or cold pockets. All of these issues are ones
that you could face if you by an AC unit that is too big or too small
for your home.
If you purchase a unit designed for a larger home, then you may end up
spending more on your HVAC system than is necessary. On the other hand,
if you purchase an HVAC unit that is too small, you will likely spend
more on your utilities each month than you should. Getting an HVAC system
that is the correct size for your home will help you avoid these unnecessary expenses.
In addition to extra costs, running an HVAC system with reduced efficiency
will increase your household’s energy usage and carbon footprint.
Ensuring that you purchase an HVAC unit that is the right size for your
house will allow you to avoid wasting energy with an air conditioner that
runs too powerfully or too often.
One of the most important reasons to get a correctly sized HVAC system
may also be one of the most surprising—it is essential for maintaining
the humidity level in your home. If you purchase an air conditioning unit
that is too large for your home, it will cool your home too quickly and
will not be able to remove all of the excess moisture in the air. This
can make your home feel uncomfortably humid, and encourage the growth
of mold and mildew.
