In choosing any type of HVAC system, finding one that is size-appropriate to the building is important in terms of achieving the best efficiency and comfort level. Beyond understanding the maintenance and installation of the systems themselves, sizing the systems appropriately is perhaps one of the most difficult tasks of an HVAC contractor. If your HVAC contractor recommends a heating system that is too big or too little for your home or business, the result will be an inefficient system that will cost more money in the long run. An oversized air conditioner will not efficiently dehumidify the air; and an oversized furnace is likely to cause a large temperature swing and create an uncomfortable climate inside the target area.
Determining the size of HVAC systems only by square footage is largely inaccurate, since it does not take into account the energy-efficiency or design of the building. Another common mistake made by many contractors is simply replacing an HVAC unit with a newer unit of the same capacity. This is not always the best strategy. Older homes, for example, often had larger-than-necessary furnaces. An older home that has undergone significant renovation with new windows, weatherstripping, insulation and caulking, will be more energy-efficient, and may be better served by replacing the older, larger heating unit with a smaller one.
