Why It’s Important to Install the Right Sized Air Conditioner Unit

Choosing the correctly sized air conditioner for your home is imperative, not only for energy efficiency, but for your comfort needs. Bigger isn’t always better. Finding the right unit will ensure your home stays cool for years to come.When choosing your air conditioner size, unit and model, the technicians of MTB will go through which option is best for your needs. Our technicians are experts in their field, so they can do a deep dive to determine such factors as load calculations and R values, but they can also give you easy-to-understand advice.
Here are three reasons why you should have an expert make sure your air conditioner is sized appropriately.
Did you know your air conditioner not only cools but also dehumidifies your home? If your AC unit is too big for your space, you risk reaching your set temperature too quickly. This fast-moving function does not take proper humidity levels into consideration.
If your AC unit is too big, it will cool your home, then shut off. In turn, it won’t go through proper cycling, causing your unit to turn on and off repeatedly. Not only is this inefficient, but it can also wear out your unit.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, if your AC unit is too small, it will have to work harder to cool your home. While the savings may seem nice at first, a unit that is too small can cost more money in the long term.
