Size Does Matter: The Importance of Sizing Furnaces and Air Conditioners

A furnace is a furnace.  The answer to that is no. It may surprise you that a heating and cooling unit must be sized appropriately to fit your home! The good news? Most of the time, you do not have to figure out these calculations.  Companies such as FLAME Heating, Cooling, and Electrical have trained Comfort Consultants who know precisely how to figure out what kind of unit you need for your home!

You may be wondering exactly why this is so important.  Your furnace or air conditioner depends on the “healthiness” and efficiency of your furnace or air conditioner!  A unit that is too small cannot supply enough air to fill your home, which reduces its efficiency and causes the unit to wear more quickly. A furnace or air conditioner that is too large may not seem like it has any cons, but if it is too big, it will cycle on and off more frequently since it has so much power it does not need to be constantly running, but cycling on and off often will also wear it down. Also, too big units can be noisy.

Therefore, when in doubt when looking into a new furnace or air conditioner-feel free to ask your Comfort Consultant about its size because size does matter! Contact FLAME with questions and check out what ENERGY STAR® has to say on this matter!
