Sizing Your New AC Unit

First and foremost, your air conditioner must be sized correctly to cool your home efficiently. If the unit is too large, it will cycle on and off frequently, thus failing to properly dehumidify the space, which results in a cold but muggy home. If the equipment is too small, it won’t be able to keep up when the summer temperatures rise.

Proper sizing is based on much more than just square footage. In addition to home size, other factors that go into calculating an air conditioner’s cooling capacity include:

  • Climate
  • Number of windows
  • Amount of shade from surrounding trees
  • Insulation levels
  • Air infiltration rates
  • Home occupancy
  • Amount of interior heat gain caused by appliances and electronics

The expert AC technicians at Kellermeier, use formal load calculations to precisely size your new air conditioner. The results are a more comfortable home and lower energy bills.
