If you’re planning to install or replace an air conditioner, there are lots of variables to consider- brand, price and energy rating are just a few. When you call Pioneer Heating and Air Conditioning, we will visit your home and perform multiple calculations to assure you are getting an estimate on the correct unit for your home.
NOT TOO BIG, NOT TOO SMALL
If an air conditioner is too big for a given space, it will cool that space down with lightning speed. Some people choose an oversized air conditioner on purpose, thinking that this is a good thing, but they are wrong.
When an air conditioner cools a room too quickly it will cycle on and off more frequently. This can put much more wear and tear on a system compared to one that is appropriately sized, which means you will spend more on maintenance and repairs. Also, whenever the unit is running you are likely to consume more energy than necessary to keep your home cool.
Furthermore, air conditioners are responsible for removing humidity in addition to lowering temperature. When the cooling cycle is too short, the air conditioner doesn’t not have the opportunity to remove enough humidity, resulting in a home that feels damp and clammy.
A unit that is too small, on the other hand, will run around-the-clock, driving up your energy bill. It may never reach your desired temperature and can even fail to keep spaces comfortable during the hottest times of the year.
So, don’t let sizing be an issue. Call Pioneer Heating and Air Conditioning today and let us guide you in the right direction for a more efficient and cooler summer.
