Whether you’re spending time with a friend, family member or significant other, nothing says comfort like being with someone you get along very well with – and that same principle can be applied to your home cooling system, too! It’s important that your AC system gets along with your home, but not in the same way that friends or family get along. We’re talking about system sizing and how important it is to find the right match for the space you need to cool down during the summer!
Besides avoiding any rough patches between your home and your AC system, there are plenty of other important reasons not to go too big or too small with your cooling equipment. Let’s review them!
Manage Energy Costs
An AC system that’s too large will cycle on and off constantly as it attempts to maintain even temperatures in the home. Meanwhile, a system that’s too small will run continuously as it tries to keep your home comfortable. In both situations, energy costs will be higher than if the system was the appropriate size for the space.
Because oversized AC systems constantly cycle on and off, and undersized systems are always running, the wear and tear takes a greater toll on the systems’ health and efficiency. Properly sized equipment will experience wear and tear at a normalized rate – so repairs and service calls are less frequent, and the equipment lasts longer.
Large cooling equipment releases cooled air in bursts – often leaving certain rooms feeling cooler than others. Undersized equipment, on the other hand, will struggle to keep temperatures even throughout the space. Right-sized equipment provides even cooling from room to room!
