How Do Professionals Determine the Right Air Conditioner Size?

When it comes to having a new air conditioning system installed, your natural inclination is likely to purchase the most powerful system within your budget. Unfortunately, while this may make perfect sense for some types of appliances, this is the wrong thing to do with an AC system purchase. An air conditioner that is not appropriately installed—and appropriately sized by professionals—can run into many problems.

In fact, the majority of premature air conditioner failures are related to the way the unit was installed to begin with. It’s important when making this kind of purchase that you understand what our professionals do upon installation to meet proper building codes and to ensure that you have the space to accommodate the system of your choice.

What if My AC Unit Is Sized Wrong?

So if your air conditioning system is too small for your home, then your living space won’t be able to reach the correct temperature. However, your AC system will run for long periods of time in an attempt to get to your desired temperature. This will eventually cause your compressor to overheat, which leads to premature system failure.

Too large of a system can also do damage: your air conditioner won’t be able to cycle long enough to remove humidity from the air. This process is called short-cycling, when your unit shuts on and off rapidly, and can cause a large amount of damage to your compressor.

How Do I Choose the Right Size?

Give our expertly trained HVAC professionals a call to ensure that you have the right sized air conditioning system installed. There are many factors we take into consideration when deciding on the appropriate size of your AC. We’ll look at:

  • Type of Home Construction
  • Type of Insulation
  • Placement of Windows and Doors
  • Type of Windows
  • Number of Occupants in the Home
  • Shading Outside of the Home
