When Size Really Does Matter!

Whether you have a window air conditioner or a central air conditioner in your New York home, they all come in many different sizes. It goes without saying that when you select an air conditioning unit, you should choose the right size that provides maximum efficiency for your home.

Many people assume that a smaller unit will automatically be more energy efficient; but this isn’t always the case. Smaller BTU units may continually run just to keep up; and as a result, your electric bill may increase and the unit will not be able to cool the areas as effectively.

On the other hand, if you purchase an AC unit that is too large for your home, it may cool more quickly and hinder the reason for running it in the first place! The fact is, because AC units are also meant to extract humidity from the air, if the unit doesn’t run for a long enough time, moisture will remain in your home. Imagine sleeping in the outdoor New York air on a sticky and foggy night. Unpleasant? Well that’s exactly the kind of feeling you will get if your air conditioner unit is not left running for long enough!

In order to ensure that you get the right AC unit installed for your requirements, you need to measure the area of your home that needs to be cooled. Then you can calculate your BTU requirements and correctly gorge the size of the air-conditioner. Remember; it’s all about creating the perfect balance; and a professional New York AC contractor will be able to advise you on the most efficient unit for you.
