When you are facing AC replacement, it can be tempting to buy the biggest AC unit on the market to ensure you are cool no matter how hot it is outside. This isn’t the approach you should be taking when replacing your unit though. You need to have the right size AC unit for your home for many reasons. Hal Mechanical is here to talk about the problems that can come from choosing an AC unit that isn’t the right size for your home.
Importance of Choosing the Right Sized Air Conditioning Unit for Your House
It can be difficult to know what size your new AC should be when you are getting ready to replace your system. There are several reasons why you should be working with a professional to make sure you are getting the right size for the home you have. Here are a few of the problems you can run into when you don’t have the right sized AC unit.
– AC Efficiency: No one wants to be using more energy than is necessary to cool their home. When you have an undersized unit, it will be running nearly around the clock as it tries to cool your home. If you have a unit that is too large, you may think that it will quickly cool your home and then shut off, so it isn’t using very much energy to get the job done. However, it shuts off and turns constantly which ends up using more energy.
– AC Operating Cost: The ramifications of having an improperly sized unit for your home can have a big impact on your budget. Whenever your AC system is using more energy than it has to, to cool your home, it is going to cost you more. Not only will you see this impact on your monthly energy bill, the wear and tear on your unit will leave you with unwanted repairs that seem to start much earlier than they should.
– Reduced Indoor Comfort: This should come as no surprise. When you have a unit that is too small for your home, it will be working overtime and never quite getting there. You will be overpaying for your cool air that doesn’t quite get you cool enough. Likewise, when you have a unit that is too large for your home, you would think it would be freezing you out of the place, but in reality, it will be turning on for such short periods of time that it won’t be able to remove the humidity from your air and leave you feeling warmer than you would like.
