The Importance of Properly Sizing Your AC System

What size air conditioning equipment is best for your home? The right size, that’s what! It’s a common misconception that a bigger AC system will cool a home down more quickly, while a smaller AC system will save homeowners energy. What makes it so important to right-size your equipment?

Let us fill you in!

Manage Energy Costs

An AC system that’s too large will cycle on and off constantly as it attempts to maintain even temperatures in the home. Meanwhile, a system that’s too small will run continuously as it tries to keep your home comfortable. In both situations, energy costs will be higher than if the system was the appropriate size for the space.

Extend Lifespan

Because oversized AC systems constantly cycle on and off, and undersized systems are always running, the wear and tear takes a greater toll on the systems’ health and efficiency. Properly sized equipment will experience wear and tear at a normalized rate – so repairs and service calls are less frequent, and the equipment lasts longer.

Even Cooling

Large cooling equipment releases cooled air in bursts – often leaving certain rooms feeling cooler than others. Undersized equipment, on the other hand, will struggle to keep temperatures even throughout the space. Right-sized equipment provides even cooling from room to room!

If you’ve picked up on cold spots throughout your home, or your energy costs have been rising steadily when you use your AC equipment, there’s a chance it’s the wrong size for your home!
