Why HVAC Sizing is Important for Energy Efficiency and Comfort
If you’re replacing the HVAC system in your Woodbridge, Virginia, home, ensure the unit you choose is the proper size. An HVAC professional can help you decide on the best air conditioner, furnace or heat pump for your family’s needs. The right HVAC sizing can decrease energy costs, make expensive breakdowns less likely, and keep your home more comfortable by improving your indoor air quality.
Lower Energy Costs
If your HVAC system is too large, it’ll waste energy and make your home too hot or too cold easily. It’ll also turn on and shut off often, causing annoying noises and frequent temperature changes. Larger units are more difficult and costly to install, as well.
If your system is too small, it won’t be able to regulate your home’s temperature well, and it’ll run almost constantly. An HVAC professional can help you find the best heater and air conditioner for optimal efficiency. As a result, you’ll avoid higher than necessary energy costs.
An HVAC system that cycles often or runs constantly endures more wear and tear. As a result, inconvenient breakdowns and expensive repairs will become more likely. A system that’s properly sized will last longer and help you save money by reducing repair costs.
Better Indoor Air Quality
If your HVAC system is too big for your home, it won’t run as long as necessary to remove excess moisture from the air or catch air contaminants effectively. This can cause unpleasant smells, attract pests and lead to biological growth. Poor indoor air quality can also cause asthma or allergy symptoms, including rashes, eye irritation, fatigue, headaches and other uncomfortable health problems.
