Correctly Sizing an AC System
It takes an expert to pick the right system for your home, and there are many factors to take into consideration. The size of the system installed in your home is an important one, because the right size is critical to providing comfort, efficiency, and low operating cost over the life of a system. The most common mistake is oversizing a system. This mistake costs more initially to install, increases maintenance costs, and causes the system not to run long enough to dehumidify a home, causing a muggy feeling and unhealthy mold growth within a home.
During the older era of home building when fewer regulations were in place, furnaces and air conditioners were being installed that had two to four times the necessary capacity. Because today’s homes are also better insulated to reduce heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer, picking a smaller system may be the way to go. This will reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs throughout the life of the system.
To correctly size a system, it’s important to take in all the factors for your specific home when choosing a system installation. Factors included in the calculations are:
- Local climate
- Shape and orientation of the home
- Insulation type
- Number of levels
- Window size, orientation, and type
- Air infiltration rates
- Number of occupants in the home
- Comfort preferences
- Major home appliances
- Efficiencies of lights
To ensure the right system is being installed in your home, your contractor should be considering all of these factors – it is their responsibility.
