Although there’s debate on some aspects of installing a larger HVAC system than you need, the fact of the matter is having a system that’s too small won’t heat or cool your house properly.
Having a system that’s too large can cost you more money in installation costs and/or ongoing energy bills.
So how do you figure out the right size for your home? The first step is to do your research, and find a reliable guide that outlines the different ways you can estimate the square footage, BTU’s and efficiency rating you need. The size and type of HVAC system you need also depends on where you live.
