Understanding Properly Sized Air Conditioning Equipment: Why Size Matters
Living in South Florida, you know that having a properly sized air conditioner is essential to staying comfortable in the hot and humid months. But do you know why size matters when it comes to your AC system? Arctic Fox Cooling, a licensed and insured AC company servicing South Florida for over a decade, is here to explain the importance of air conditioning equipment sizing.
First and foremost, a properly sized air conditioner optimizes your system’s efficiency. Too large of an AC unit may cool the space too quickly, resulting in short-cycling and increased energy costs. On the other hand, an AC that’s too small will have to work harder and longer to cool the space, leading to higher electricity bills and potential AC system damage.
Additionally, having the right size AC unit optimizes your comfort levels. An undersized unit will struggle to keep up with the demands of the space, leaving you feeling stuffy, hot, and uncomfortable. An oversized unit will cool the space too quickly, leaving you feeling drafty and chilly.
Finally, the size of your AC unit affects your indoor air quality. An undersized system will run more often, resulting in lower air circulation and poor air quality. An oversized system, on the other hand, will cool the space quickly before the air is properly filtered, resulting in dust and dirt particles being circulated throughout the space.
