How Can You Know the Right HVAC Size for Your Home?

Hvac Size

Is your HVAC unit a good fit for your home? We’re not talking about measuring the dimensions of your furnace or air conditioner. HVAC sizing is a term that refers to matching the BTU capacity of a new heating or cooling unit to the unique specifications and requirements of your house.

An undersized or oversized furnace or AC is no bargain. What’s worse, there’s no fix for the drawbacks that will persist as long as a unit with the wrong HVAC size is installed. These include:

What’s Involved in HVAC Size and Sizing

HVAC sizing is based on the Manual J calculation published by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA). Utilizing Manual J, a qualified HVAC professional will conduct a survey of the house and enter data, including these factors:

After all factors are entered with regard to HVAC size, the Manual J software calculates the exact required BTU capacity for HVAC components. This information is provided to the homeowner with suggestions to make an accurate, informed choice about a new heating and cooling system.
