Your Air Conditioner Must Be of the Right Size for Your Home

The summer season can be very hot and humid in this part of the country. If you are serious about enjoying the very best performance that your cooling system has to offer, you need to do more than invest in a great system. You must also be certain that your air conditioner is of the right size for your home.

Bigger Is Not Inherently Better

Some homeowners mistakenly believe that they are always going to be better off with a larger air conditioning system. This is not really the case, though. Yes, you want to avoid having an undersized air conditioner installed in your home. If your AC is too small, your system will run longer than it should have to, and it will waste energy as it struggles to cool a space that is just beyond its cooling capabilities. Essentially, you’ll likely be paying more for a lesser performance from your system.

However, an oversized air conditioner is really just as problematic. If your air conditioner is too big for the space in which it is installed, it is actually going to bring the temperature down too quickly. That may not sound like a problem, but it can lead to short cycling, meaning that your system will turn on and off too quickly. This reduces the dehumidification capability of an AC system, and puts a lot of unnecessary wear and tear on the equipment, as well.

Let Ideal Services Heating & Cooling install your air conditioner for a job well done.
