What is the proper size HVAC system for my home?

There are a few different ways that you can determine the proper size HVAC system for your home. One way is to use a BTU calculator. This will take into consideration the square footage of your home, the number of windows and doors, the insulation levels, and other factors.

Another method is to ask a professional HVAC contractor to do a load calculation. This involves measuring the heat gain and loss in your home and using that information to determine the right size unit.

If replacing a unit in your Sarasota home, you may be able to locate the size of the old unit. The size will be in either tons or BTUs per hour and is usually stamped on the side of the unit.

Keep in mind that a larger unit is not always better. An oversized AC unit will cycle on and off more frequently, which can lead to higher energy bills and wear and tear on the unit. It is important to get a unit that is just the right size for your home.

The most important thing is to make sure that you get a properly sized air conditioning unit for your home. An undersized AC unit will have to work harder to keep your home comfortable, which can lead to higher energy bills (especially in sunny Sarasota) and cause premature failures.
