What HVAC System Size Should I Have?

HVAC System SizeIf you have asked yourself the question, “What size HVAC system should I have?” you are not alone. This is one of the most commonly asked questions in the heating and cooling business. You want to make sure that you are purchasing a unit that is large enough to cool your entire home or office without having to be larger and more expensive than you need. We at Western Heating & Air can help you determine the right HVAC system size so that you can stay cool and comfortable all year long.

While some rule of thumb techniques are used by laymen to determine the right size of unit for an indoor space, these practices are generally discouraged. One ton of air conditioning can cool anywhere from 300 to 800 feet of indoor space, but these numbers may change depending on a building’s temperature regulating abilities. A licensed professional can give you an accurate estimate only after a home evaluation.

Is a System With a Higher Capacity Always Better?

Contrary to popular belief, a larger system with more capacity actually delivers less comfort than a system that is correctly sized. Not only that, but larger system are generally more expensive than smaller systems. If your home or office is equipped with a larger system than is needed, the system will run numerous short cycles and will often turn on and off. These shorter cycles do not remove humidity from the air as well, and the entire system runs less efficiently. Only a licensed HVAC repair specialist can assess the correct HVAC system size for your home or office.

Tyler and Carter were efficient, helpful, and courteous. They walked us through our new system and explained everything so we could use and maintain the system after they left. Great experience!

Brady and LT (and the entire Western Heating & Air Team) have been amazing through a less than ideal scenario. Our outdoor unit with our ductless system was having issues and completely went down on two occasions. Once they figured out the issue, they got a warranty claim in process and quickly got the new unit installed (Brady and LT are true professionals and pros at what they do). Our family feels in good hands with Western Heating and Air, and appreciate all the compassion and hard work to help us through this less than ideal scenario with the problems we had with the outdoor unit. THANK YOU!
