Many homeowners do not know the size of their air conditioner, much less how important it is to have the right sized unit. Below, we discuss why it is important to make sure that your AC unit is the correct size for your home.
For one, if your air conditioner is too small for your home, it will end up running more often, which increases wear and tear, breakdowns, and the chance of pipes freezing up. An AC system that is not big enough for your home won’t properly cool because it will be forced to be in a constant state of trying to catch up to the thermostat setting.
When your AC unit is too large for your home, it will run like an older unit. It will come on quick and strong to cool your house and will then immediately shut off. Although your home will have cool air, it will warm up quickly and the AC unit will need to turn back on. The constant cycle of turning on and turning off again cancels out the purpose of the unit’s energy efficiency and will generally increase your monthly electricity bill.
Having the ideal air conditioner size in your home will ensure that it runs efficiently, so your family can be more comfortable, both physically and financially.
