What Size Of Air Conditioner Do You Need?

how to determine ac size

When it comes to your cooling and heating system, bigger isn’t always better, and smaller isn’t always more economical. The wrong sized system could cost you!

A system that is too large will cool or heat your house quickly, but too many starts and stops will shorten the life of your HVAC equipment and increase your utility bills. A system that is too small won’t get the job done either, it will run constantly and likely increase your energy consumption.

That’s why a properly completed load calculation with an experienced comfort consultant is so important. Logan Services will determine the correct system type and size for your home by doing a whole-house analysis, as well as listening to your comfort concerns.

While many think that only the total square footage of the home will determine the heating and cooling size requirements, there are more things to consider. Critical factors that determine your recommended A/C system size include:

  • Outdoor Climate
  • How Many Windows You Have
  • Insulation & Ductwork
  • Skylights & Fireplaces
  • Home Layout & Ceiling Heights
  • Number of People Living In The Home
