When sizing air conditioners, be careful not to make the mistake of getting one that is too large. If the system you install is too large for the space, it will short cycle. In other words, the compressor will not run long enough to dehumidify the space and will limit your comfort. In addition, it will cycle on and off more frequently, increasing operating costs and reducing the system life. Proper air conditioner sizing is critical to optimize performance.
The heating capacity of a furnace is measured in thousands of BTU (British Thermal Units). Furnaces are rated by the amount of fuel energy consumed when running, called input BTU. Different furnaces of the same input BTU will have different output BTU, as this is the actual heating capacity of the furnace. You can easily calculate the output BTU by multiplying the input BTU by the efficiency percentage. For example, a 100,000 BTU furnace at 80% efficiency will produce 80,000 BTUs of heat while a 100,000 BTU furnace at 95% efficiency will produce 95,000 BTUs of heat output.
When calculating furnace size, it pays to be accurate. A home furnace is an expensive purchase that is complicated and difficult to replace. A correctly sized furnace will run more efficiently, need fewer repairs and provide years of comfortable heating.
Although the temptation to think more is better, it is important to correctly size your furnace. A furnace that is too big for your home will turn on and off frequently – a process called short cycling. Short cycling can create condensation that will lead to corrosion inside the furnace. A furnace that is too small for your home will run for longer periods, trying to heat your home. This will lead to higher energy costs and shorten the lifespan of your furnace. In a worst-case scenario, a furnace that is too small might not even be able to heat your home properly in the depths of winter.
