How to Choose the Right Air Conditioning Unit

A primary factor you need to consider when choosing a new AC unit is size. The size of your home or business in Colorado Springs, CO determines the size of the air conditioner you need.

If you purchase a new cooling system that is too small, then it will work too hard. This will cost more in the long run. Also, an undersized air conditioning unit will not adequately cool your house, leaving some spots too warm or not cooled at all. Similarly, an AC unit that is too large for your space will cycle on and off too frequently. This also overwrites the air conditioning system and does not allow the unit to operate long enough to provide the necessary dehumidification.

What size air conditioner do I need for my property?

We suggest you first determine the square footage of the space you want to cool. Itís really a simple formula. Just take the length of the space and multiply it by the width. Of course, you need to add together all the spaces of your home or business if your property has multiple floors.

Once you have the square footage of the space you want the air conditioning unit to cool, consult this chart from Energy Star. It provides BTU (British Thermal Units) guidelines based on square footage and is an excellent place to start. Larger spaces require more BTUs than smaller spaces.

Energy Star BTU Guidelines for Air Conditioning

This chart provides great tips on choosing an Air Conditioner for your home and business. It also lists other factors you should consider beyond square footage.

For example, you should also consider: How much insulation is in your home? If your boulding is poorly insulated, the cooling system or AC unit works harder.

What is the climate in my area? Consistently warm climates obviously require air conditioning units that perform at a higher level.
