When replacing your AC unit, it is extremely important that you choose the right sized unit for your home to get efficient cool air throughout it. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to explain the importance of the right sized unit as well as explain what goes into choosing the right size.
What Happens if My AC Unit is Undersized
If you live in a small home, you can be get by using a smaller unit which only makes sense. However, if you think that you can possible save a little money by choosing a smaller unit rather than the larger one, you would be wrong. Not only will the smaller unit quite possibly be unable to cool your home, your unit will be running around the clock as it tries to do so. This is not only hard on your pocketbook, but it is hard on the unit as well. The cycles will be much longer and more expensive for you as a homeowner when you choose a unit that is too small for your home.
Problems With Oversized Air Conditioner
For most people, it seems completely reasonable that when you buy the biggest unit possible for your home, you will be able to simply run it less to keep your home cool. This, unfortunately, isn’t the case. When a unit is too large for the home, it has a problem known as ‘short cycling’ that isn’t energy efficient. This means that it will reach the optimal temperature fairly quickly and shut off before completely the cooling cycle, only to start up in just a short time to do it all over again. This is also a problem that can be hard on your unit as well as your budget.
