When It Comes to Your Air Conditioner, Size Matters

This entry was posted in Uncategorized on by .

Has your home’s air conditioner hit the end of the road? When you’re ready for a replacement, there’s more to consider than just the brand name. You also want to choose the appropriate size unit to maximize its efficiency and usage.

Many homeowners believe that bigger is better when it comes to air conditioners, but that’s not the case. If you install a unit that is too large for your home’s size, you are throwing away money on energy costs each month.

A Cycle of Wasted Energy

If you’ve every experienced an air conditioner that turns on and off frequently, you’ve seen the problem of a too large air conditioner. A unit that is not the right size will cool your home too quickly and turn off soon afterwards. The result is a never-ending cycle of turning on and off that is not only annoying to listen to but also a big waste of energy. Because of the constant cycling, temperature fluctuations are also a big problem.

Experience and Expertise Also Matter

Choosing a unit that is sized appropriately for your home is the best way to get the true value of this important investment.
