Big home, small home, everyone’s different! What isn’t different however, is the need for a cool and comfortable home year-round. For many, this isn’t typically an issue, though for some, it can be. What it generally boils down to is sometimes the size of your air conditioning unit, and it’s inability to cool your home. What might seem big enough may not have the power for an entire home, which is why you’re not seeing the results you want. Whether you’re upgrading or looking to build a new system entirely, here are a few things to note.

What Size Do They Come In?

Typically, the size of central air units range from 1-ton to 5-tons. For commercial units, you’ll be looking at something generally over 5 tons. Typically, most homes won’t need more than this amount of cooling power, but if they do, you can have two smaller units working in tandem with one another.

Can Something Be Too Big?

Simply put, yes. Think about it this way. Your A/C is bigger, so it can cool faster, but your air conditioner can’t run through a full cycle, because it will shut off once the temperature reaches where it needs to be. This will allow for warm air to infiltrate your home before the unit has a chance to power back on again, which can lead to lapses in comfort and cool air.

So How Can I Find Out The Size?

While there are math equations associated with finding out how many tons you need, it probably won’t matter at the end of the day. An experienced technician will be able to come to your home and assess the situation much quicker, especially when there are other factors involved. This way, the entire process can be tied into one, and you can be up, running, and cool in no time.
