If you plan on upgrading your air conditioning system in the near future, you’ll want to have your contractor size the unit beforehand. Sizing creates a picture of the type of system you need and the capacity it should have in order to comfortably cool your home.

Air conditioning systems are often undersized or oversized, both of which create problems. When a system is undersized, it doesn’t have enough power to adequately cool the air in your home. An oversized system can lead to increased energy costs, failure of the system’s parts and excessive noise.
