Having a properly sized HVAC system is important for maintaining comfort in your Kinston, North Carolina, home. Without a properly sized HVAC system, you can face many problems. Here are the top three reasons you should have your HVAC system sized by a professional:
Boost Energy Efficiency
A correctly sized HVAC system can save you a lot on your utility bills. They’re specifically designed to handle the demands of your home in the most effective way possible. If the HVAC system isn’t sized correctly, you may notice sky-rocketing utility bills.
A common but incorrect thought is that buying an oversized HVAC can save you money, as it shouldn’t have to run as long to cool your home. This isn’t true. Instead, it’ll consume more energy by turning off and on too frequently. Meanwhile, undersized systems consume more energy from having to work too hard. As a result, they drive up your energy costs and strain your system more.
Enjoy a Consistent Temperature
HVAC systems that are too large or too small can create inconsistent temperatures in your home. A correctly sized and installed system should keep your home comfortable without any hot or cold spots.
If the unit is too large, it’ll run through cycles too quickly, leading to poor airflow and temperature fidelity. On the other hand, a unit that’s too small will run far longer cycles but may not be able to reach your whole home, leading to rooms that don’t end up getting any circulation.
Extend the System’s Lifespan
Because the unit isn’t running like it’s supposed to, incorrectly sized systems often have shorter lifespans than correctly sized systems. Parts will have greater wear and tear, either from extended use or frequent short cycles. While maintenance can help catch issues before they cause breakdowns, they often can’t overcome the extra strain caused by poor sizing. As a result, poor sizing leads to more frequent repairs.
