Trying to determine the correct size of heating and air conditioning equipment for your residential space hinges on a couple different factors. You want a system that works well and doesn’t break the bank on utility costs. The main determining issues for residential system sizing are square footage and climate.
Taking the size and design of your home into consideration is essential. Airflow will have a massive effect on the heating and cooling efficiency of your system. Sometimes even smaller homes have poor airflow and need a more powerful system to effectively heat or cool all the rooms.
A large home might seem like a great advantage in many ways, but when it comes to evenly heating and cooling indoor air in a large space, it can be a challenge. Some people with larger homes choose to invest in zoning systems. Zoning involves a programmable thermostat that can individually focus heating and cooling measures on different areas or “zones” in your house.
The seasonal extremes can be dramatically different depending on where you live. In the Kannapolis area, since we experience some especially hot and humid summers AND surprisingly frigid winters, you might want to invest in a more powerful system that can match the swelter degree for degree. Likewise, if you want more emphasis on heating capacity to stay cozy in the chilly winter months, you need to pick a heating system that has better operating efficiency in these extreme conditions.
