When looking for a heating and air conditioning system, arm yourself with knowledge before you begin the hunt. Here are some points to consider:

How much power

Many think more power is better. For an HVAC system, this is a mistake. You are looking for something just right. If your unit is not big enough, it could run non-stop (expensive,) and it still wouldn’t be able to cool your home effectively. On the other hand, if the unit is too big, the temperatures will reach the desired level much too quickly before the moisture in the air is drawn out. The unit will continue running short cycles, and your interior air will be cold and humid. Either way, the system will be working overtime, either through long cycles that never reach the desired temperature or through many short cycles that could leave your home feeling like the inside of a cave. This added wear and tear means mechanical breakdowns that could have been avoided.
