When it comes time to replace your home air conditioner, many people will either get a unit too small or one that is too big for their home. When it comes to replacing your home’s air conditioning system it is important to get the right size unit. When the air conditioner unit isn’t the right size the cooling system will develop a number of different problems. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning will share the symptoms of a wrong size air conditioner and why it is important to have the proper size unit.

When you find yourself needing to replace your home’s air conditioner unit you should always seek out a professional HVAC technician. There are times when a homeowner will buy their air conditioner only to find out later it was the wrong size. Many homeowners will either buy a unit too big or too small in hopes to save money or have better efficiency. However, when the air conditioner unit isn’t the right size, you will have poor performance from your home’s cooling system. Bad performance can lead to premature wear of the air conditioner and more. When determining the right size of air conditioning unit a number of factors must be considered. To determine the right size air conditioning unit, you will need to calculate the interior square footage or space the air conditioner will be cooling. This will be calculated along with how high the ceilings are and the number and sizes of windows inside the home.
Air Conditioner Too Small for House?
When you have an air conditioner unit that is too small often the air conditioner system will run constantly. Since the unit is too small, it cannot meet the demands of the cooling space. Another result of an air conditioner unit that is too small is that the air flow from the vents will feel weak. Again, as the space is too large for the size of the unit, it will not have much power or produce enough cool air. As the air flow is too weak the home will never feel very cool which is why the air conditioner will run constantly. Since the home feels warm inside and the air conditioner is running all the time, you can expect a much higher energy bill.
AC Unit Too Large for House?
When the air conditioner unit is too big one of the first signs is short cycling. Short cycling is when the air conditioner runs for only a few minutes and then suddenly switches off before the home is cool. Short cycling occurs because the unit is too big and is draining the power supply. Short cycling can even cause the power circuit to the air conditioner to trip frequently. Another sign the air conditioner unit is to big is when the temperature inside the home never remains consistent. It may even feel humid inside the home, especially on our more humid days. As the air conditioner system helps to remove high humidity inside the home when the unit isn’t working properly, the home will have more humidity.
