What Size HVAC System Do I Need?

One of the most common questions we receive is what size HVAC unit should I get and should I upgrade my HVAC unit. The answer to this question varies based on the size of your home, the status of your current HVAC system, and how many rooms you want to be controlled by the HVAC unit. A common misconception is that bigger is better when it comes to HVAC systems for your home. This could not be further from the truth. If you have an HVAC system that is to large for your home it will cool it to quickly, this will leave behind moisture that could turn to mold.

Another common problem for HVAC units that are to large is they tend to short-cycle. This means the unit will be constantly starting and stopping which will decrease the life of the HVAC system and increase the price of your electricity bills. We highly recommend contacting one of our 2nd Wind heating and air conditioning professionals to ensure you get the right HVAC system for your home.
