What You Need t Consider When Sizing Your AC
Your AC unit breaks down and it’s the middle of summer! The heat is unbearable without an air conditioner, and it can be unsafe to be out in the heat without a way to cool down. You need to get a new unit and fast. But before you buy the biggest AC unit you can find, you have to keep a couple of factors in mind to find the properly sized AC for your home. An AC unit that is bigger isn’t always better.
Look at Multiple AC Unit Sizes – If you attempt to buy the first unit you come across because it may be similar to your old unit or have great reviews, you may be making a mistake. Size does matter, but not in the way that you think. The cooling power of your AC unit is gauged by BTUs, also known as British Thermal Units. BTUs signify the amount of energy necessary to increase the temperature of one pound of water by one degree. The higher your unit’s BTU, the higher the capacity to cool. If you purchase a bigger AC on the premise that a bigger unit means higher cooling power, you may be left with a cold, damp, and clammy home, which isn’t refreshing at all! The best way to determine the correct AC unit that will cool your space is to consult a certified HVAC technician who can help you find the perfect fit.
