Are you constantly asking why it’s always hot inside your house? If your house always feels too warm in the summer, no matter where you set the thermostat, it could be the size of your HVAC unit. Bigger isn’t always better. Take a look at why the wrong-sized system could be the reason for your hot house this season.
When the Unit is Too Big
It’s easy to think that bigger is better when it comes to cooling your house, but that’s not usually the case. If you get a too-big AC unit thinking it will make for a super-cool house, you’re in for an unpleasant surprise. If there’s too much tonnage, it will cycle on and off frequently to meet temperature demands. Because of the size and the short cycles, it cools quickly but can’t reduce the humidity, leaving your home feeling too warm and a bit sticky. You’ll also find the temperatures are inconsistent because longer cycles lead to more dependable cooling.
When the Unit is Too Small
Homeowners that choose units that are too small for their home’s square footage have similar issues for opposite reasons. A system that doesn’t have the size and power to cool off your home in regular cycles will run longer and still not meet demand. It will use more energy in the process of trying to keep up, raising your utility bills, and it still won’t be able to keep your house cool.
