Installing the right size HVAC unit in your Miami home is important for a number of reasons, but how can you be sure you’re getting the correct size?

Why It’s Important to Choose the Correct Size for Your HVAC Unit

You’re updating your HVAC system so that you can enjoy a comfortable home even on the hottest summer day in Miami. If the unit is too small, it won’t be able to sufficiently cool your home—and that would defeat the entire purpose of the investment you made.

It’s also important not to select a unit that’s too large. Some may think it’s better to size up, but doing so brings its own set of issues. First is the initial cost. By choosing a unit that’s too large, you could end up paying a few thousand dollars more. The ongoing operating costs will be higher as well.

Finally, because a too-large unit will cycle off and on more frequently than a correctly-sized unit, you’ll end up with cold and hot spots throughout your home. Also, since the AC won’t run as long before cycling off, it won’t have the chance to dehumidify the air, and humid air diminishes the comfort level of your home.
