Evans Heating & Cooling Breaks Down HVAC Unit Size: How To Choose The Right Size Air Conditioning System

Elgin, SC – Evans Heating & Cooling, a leading HVAC company catering to customers throughout Elgin, Lugoff, and the surrounding areas of South Carolina, leverages its expertise to assist clients in selecting the ideal HVAC size for their specific requirements. Addressing one of the most frequently asked questions from customers regarding the most suitable HVAC unit size, the heating and cooling specialists delve into this concern to ensure clients make informed decisions tailored to their needs.

Jonathan Evans, the Evans Heating & Cooling spokesperson, noted that getting the right HVAC size requires two fundamental steps; however, those steps require attention to key details. Evans explained that the first step in purchasing the right HVAC size is to determine the number of British Thermal Units (BTUs) of heating and the tons of air conditioning (AC) needed.

In determining the heating BTUs and AC tons, consumers can consider using methodical options like the Manual J Calculation which considers important details like the climate zone, property square footage, number and style of windows, ductwork, heat-generating appliances within the property, the number of people using/occupying the space, access to natural shade or sunlight, as well as the quality and amount of insulation in the space.

Jonathan Evans noted that many utility companies offer free energy audits that provide consumers with a Manual J calculation for their home or business. By utilizing this energy audit, property owners can enhance the accuracy of their estimations.

Customers can also leverage an alternative method, the Square Footage Measurements. The square footage measurement offers a rough estimate of the BTU needed per square foot and can be used as a general guideline for estimating what is needed based on the property size.

Once the heating BTUs and AC tons have been estimated, the second phase involves deciding the best HVAC unit to buy. The experts advise that customers may oftentimes not find the exact BTU for their property and may need to choose heating and cooling units with a higher BTU compared to their requirements.

Trane, an industry manufacturer, noted that having a little extra power isn’t bad; however, customers should note that “the maximum size unit you should buy would be 15% over the BTUs you need for cooling and 40% of the BTUs for heating. The max for heat pumps is 25% since it handles both cooling and heating.”

With over 45 years of experience in the heating and cooling industry, Evans Heating & Cooling continues to provide invaluable guidance to customers in Elgin and Lugoff, South Carolina, ensuring they select the ideal HVAC size for their needs.
