If you are in the market for a new air conditioner because your old one has given out, don’t simply buy one that is exactly the same as your current unit.

There are several factors that should go into your purchasing decision, so take your time and make sure you’re getting the right cooling system for your needs:
• Measure the square footage of the rooms that will need cooling so that you can properly calculate the amount of cooling capacity that is right for your home. If your home is 1,000-1,200 square feet, for example, you’ll probably want a system that produces 21,000-24,000 BTU (British Thermal Units) per hour. The larger your home, of course, the more BTU will be needed to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
• It is extremely important that you don’t get a system that is too small for your home. If you do, it will have to work too hard to make you cool. This will not only reduce the lifespan of your air conditioner, it will also make your cooling bills far too high. On the other hand, if your system is too large it will not operate often enough. As a result, it will not do a good enough job of removing humidity from your indoor air.
