Danny brings your HVAC tech tip of the week: why AC size matters.
What size of system should I buy?
This is where an expert Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer comes into play. Ask a contractor to perform a detailed load calculation. This calculation determines the capacity of the equipment needed and the correct distribution of air to each room.
If the HVAC system is too small, it will not be able to meet comfort needs in extreme weather. A system that is too large will reduce efficiency benefits, increase costs, and provide poorer temperature and humidity control.
Use the square footage of the room and the chart below to determine the correct cooling capacity. Cooling capacity is measured in British thermal units (Btu) per hour.
