AC Size | Pitssburgh | Boehmer Heating & CoolingChoosing the right air conditioner for your space is a big decision. If you chose the wrong size AC it wont be able to cool your space properly. There are a few problems that can be caused by an oversized air conditioner. In addition to turning on and off frequently, which can wear down components, it also might have fast air flow. If the air flow is too fast, your air conditioner is unable to cool or dehumidify the air effectively, which can prevent it from keeping your home comfortable. When you are installing or replacing an air conditioning system, a professional load calculation will help you find the right size unit for your home’s needs.
