At KVA Mechanical, we understand that your home’s air conditioning system is a major investment. With the proper AC unit size, you can ensure that your home is cool and comfortable all summer long. But how can you be sure you’re purchasing the right size AC unit for your home?
Consider Your Home’s Size
The size of your home is the first factor to consider when choosing an AC unit. The bigger your home, the more cooling power you’ll need. A larger AC unit will be able to cool your space more quickly and efficiently.
Calculate Your Home’s Cooling Load
The cooling load of your home is the amount of cooling power required to maintain a comfortable temperature. To calculate your home’s cooling load, you should consider factors such as the size of your home, the number of occupants, the number of windows, and the direction in which your home faces.
Choose an Energy-Efficient AC Unit
When selecting an AC unit for your home, you should look for one that is energy-efficient. Energy-efficient AC units use less electricity to cool your home and can help you save money on your energy bills. You can find energy-efficiency ratings on the Energy Star website.
Choose the Right Type of AC Unit
There are two types of AC units available: central AC units and split-system AC units. Central AC units are installed in the ceiling or in the attic and are connected to your home’s ductwork. Split-system AC units are installed in the wall and cool only the room they are installed in.
