Air Conditioning: Why Sizing is Important


Professional air conditioning installation may be the most single important factor to take into consideration when deciding to replace your existing system, or installing a cooling system in your new home build. The reason for that is partly due to the importance of sizing. Every air conditioner on the market today is built too cool a specific volume of air, and this needs to be appropriately matched to the size of your living space.  For more info, or to schedule Tampa, FL air conditioning installation service, call the experts at Ierna’s Heating & Cooling today!

Let’s take a look at a few reasons why sizing is so important to the ongoing operation of your new AC system.

  • Energy efficiency: This is probably one of the most important reasons why the size of your AC should matter to you. Efficiency is cooling output divided by electrical energy input. While the costs of our utility bills seem only to rise, improving our home’s efficiency gives us more control over our home expenses. If your AC is too small, then it will burn a lot of energy simply trying to keep up with basic cooling levels during the summer. If it’s too big, then its cycles of activity will be contracted, and this constant shutting on and off leads to decreased energy efficiency.
  • Performance: The same goes for performance. If your AC is not properly sized, then it simply will not perform as it should, nor can you expect it to work well during the hottest temperatures. The natural dehumidification process of the AC may also suffer, resulting in stuffy and uncomfortable air.
  • System life: An improperly sized air conditioning system will not enjoy as long a life as it should. If it is constantly overworked as a result of being inadequate or short cycling as a result of being overly adequate, then your AC will begin to show its age quickly. Premature replacement is the last thing you want from your new AC.

We hope this helps you realize the importance of appropriate sizing. For more information about our exceptional Tampa, FL air conditioning installation services, call Ierna’s Heating & Cooling today
