Did You Get The Right-Sized Air Conditioner?
There are a lot of considerations to make prior to the installation of your new air conditioning system. Not only must you determine which air conditioning system make and model best suits your budget, home, and personal cooling preferences, but you must also determine just how big your new air conditioning system must be in order to operate as efficiently and reliably as possible. If you have any doubts about whether or not your air conditioner is the right size for your home, just run it for a while. The answer will become obvious soon enough, though you may not like the results. Contact the Andover, MN air conditioning installation professionals at Air Mechanical, Inc. with any questions you have regarding the sizing of your air conditioning system. Obviously, an air conditioner that is too small for your home is going to encounter some problems during operation. The most obvious is the fact that your home cooling system will struggle to reach temperature settings that are simply beyond its comfort zone. This means that your air conditioning system will run longer than it ought to, and in many cases still be unable to maintain comfortable temperatures. The result is a subpar air conditioning performance that actually winds up costing you more money than a great performance should. Clearly this is not the type of air conditioning experience you want. Many homeowners fail to realize, though, that an oversized air conditioning system is no more effective. Sure, it will be able to handle the demand that you place on it. However, it will reach target temperatures too quickly, which can lead to short cycling. This means that your air conditioning system will cycle on and off more frequently than it should, which can increase the risk of damage to your system while decreasing energy efficiency. Plus, since your air conditioner should bring up temperatures at a certain rate in order to dehumidify the air adequately, your indoor air quality may suffer. Don’t let an improperly sized air conditioning system disrupt your comfort this cooling season.
