Proper HVAC Sizing

The Importance of Proper HVAC Sizing

Is your home always too hot in the winter and too cold during the summer? Or maybe the opposite is true, and no matter how high or low you crank the temperature, you’re never as comfortable in your home as you should be? You might assume your thermostat is broken if this is the case, and indeed, a faulty thermostat can be responsible for inconsistent temperature levels. However, if your thermostat is in good working condition, it’s possible there’s another problem with your equipment instead.

Different heating and cooling units are sized to fit the needs of different homes. Assuming that a larger air conditioner or heating system is always better equipped to get the job done is incorrect, and what’s more, may lead to unexpected problems. An HVAC unit that is too big for your home will use too much energy, and cycle on and off more frequently without ever reaching the ideal operating temperature. The end result of overly sized HVAC equipment is basically higher bills for less comfort. Conversely, a system that is too small for your home will have to work twice as hard to heat/cool your entire space, meaning you will basically end up with the same result as you would with a unit that is too large.

For optimum HVAC performance, you will need to determine proper heating/cooling load, based on the size and shape of your house, the amount of insulation you have, and your local climate. That’s why if you decide to go the amateur route with HVAC installation, rather than calling a professional, you are more likely to end up with a system that’s not equipped to meet your needs.
