Nothing beats walking into your refreshingly cool Sarasota, Florida, home on a boiling hot day. But did you know that an incorrectly sized HVAC system can waste energy, money and comfort? If you notice any of the following signs, your HVAC unit could be the wrong size for your home:
Your HVAC System Keeps Turning On and Off
Do you hear a familiar "click" as your HVAC system turns on only to hear a second "click" shortly afterward, alerting you that your system has turned off? If your system seems to be constantly turning off and on, this could be a sign that your HVAC system is too big.
An overly large HVAC system will cool your home down too quickly. Once it reaches its programed temperature, the thermostat will shut down the system before it finishes the full cycle. As a result, your system will be less energy efficient. It’ll also suffer unnecessary wear and tear.
Your HVAC System Doesn’t Have Enough Power
Is your HVAC system running constantly but not cooling your home sufficiently? Perhaps your HVAC system is too small. A smaller system comes with a smaller price tag. But if your system is too small, the unit will struggle to keep the temperature comfortable and consistent. This will result in higher energy bills and frequent repairs.
