What Size Air Conditioning Unit Do I Need?

Many factors affect the size and kind of air conditioner you need. When selecting a unit, you need to consider different elements of your home, including moisture levels, insulation, number of windows, number of heat-producing appliances, total square-footage, the direction your home faces and how many people live there. With air conditioners, bigger is not always better. An over sized unit will cool more quickly than a smaller one, but cannot extract the humidity as effectively, resulting in clammy, sticky air. A too-large unit will also cycle off and on frequently, eliminating any potential energy savings.
