Does your AC Company provide you with the right size unit? The AC or Air Conditioning portion of your home HVAC system is generally made up of 2 main components. An outdoor condensing unit, or condenser, and an indoor evaporator coil, commonly referred to as your air handler since it’s shaped like the letter A. Since the components are located in different areas, it’s commonly called a central air conditioner.
In Pasco, Hernando, Pinellas and Hillsborough area, the size of a central air conditioner for your Florida home is going to depend on many factors! Aside from the square footage of your home itself, there are several important characteristics of your home and the surrounding landscape that must be taken into consideration before an accurate central ac size is determined. Most residential central AC units are available in sizes from 1.5 tons to 5 tons of cooling capacity. If you need more than a single 5 ton system, you will likely need two smaller systems instead, which can be matched to work more efficiently than one single large unit anyhow. Even though we estimate the size you need for your home size as a basic measure of the system you may need, a trained HVAC contractor needs to perform a thorough HVAC Load Calculation on your home to be sure you are getting the right size system installed! Even on standard unit replacements, you should insist that the contractor perform a load calculation and provide you with the results. CoolQuest will always give you the proper paper for you to look over so you know what you are getting is the correct size unit for your home. Call CoolQuest Today!
