AC units come in many different sizes, and the size of unit your home needs depends on many different factors. Although it may seem like a larger unit will cool your home better, this isn’t necessarily the case. Letting our professionals determine the best sized unit for your home will ensure optimal efficiency and effectiveness. Here are a few factors we take into account when sizing new AC units for our clients:
- House size—The size of your house is a good starting point for figuring out the size unit your home needs. Not only will we measure the square footage of your home, but we’ll also take into account the height of the ceilings in your rooms.
- Location—The climate in your area will play a role in the size of AC unit you need. Since Florida gets very warm, especially in the summer, we’ll take this into account when helping you select the new AC unit for your home.
- Windows—Although windows can provide wonderful views of the outdoors and natural light, they can also contribute to heating your home. We’ll look at how many windows your home has, their dimensions, and their location when making recommendations for the size of your new AC unit.
- Existing ductwork—AC units can’t run without proper ductwork. We’ll look at how your existing ductwork is configured. If your ductwork is poorly insulated or leaking in certain spots, we can fix these issues during the replacement process.
