If your AC has reached the end of its life and you are facing replacement, before you run out and buy a new AC unit for your house, there are some things to consider. Something that can have a big impact on your comfort levels and pocketbook is the size of your unit. Having and oversized or undersized unit can have a big impact on many different aspects of your HVAC system. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about what can happen when you choose an oversized or undersized unit for your home.
Decreased Indoor Comfort
It shouldn’t be surprising that when you put an undersized unit in your home, it will have a hard time keeping up with your cooling demands. It will be working overtime to try and cool your home down and will never quite get there. This means that you aren’t going to be as comfortable during the heat of the summer. Without the right output capacity, you will most definitely be warmer than you would like. On the flip side, an oversized unit will leave you less comfortable as well. An oversized unit will constantly short cycle without ever being on long enough to truly dehumidify your air and cool your home down.
AC Units Lose Efficiency
In a world where we are all trying to do our part to reduce our carbon footprint, an AC system that isn’t efficient definitely won’t help us accomplish that. Both an under and oversized unit will be less efficient. Your undersized unit will be on around the clock drawing energy all the while. An oversized unit, while you may think that it would take less time to cool the house and therefore use less energy, is not the way it works. It draws a significant amount of energy every time it short cycles off and on.
Increased Air Conditioning Operating Costs
It almost goes without saying, if you are dealing with an inefficient AC system, you don’t only use more energy to keep it operating, you will also pay more for it. An AC system that isn’t correctly sized, will end up costing you much more in the long run. Not only will it use more energy, the wear and tear on the unit because of its improper size will more than likely leave you with repairs that you shouldn’t be struggling with so soon. The life of your AC system will be greatly reduced if it isn’t the right size for your home.
