Dillon's Heating & Cooling Reveals the Signs to Know If AC Is Too Small for the Home

Dillon's Heating & Cooling, a company based in Lenexa, KS, reveals in a new blog post the signs to know if the air conditioning (AC) unit is too small for the home. For homes where the air conditioning is not cooling the home, several issues could be to blame. When buying an air conditioner, it is advisable to have a professional HVAC technician check the property and its size, and suggest a specific unit. Factors like budget, quality, SEER rating, square footage, and ductwork may have to be considered. More about this can be gleaned from https://www.dillonsheatingandcooling.com/post/is-my-air-conditioning-unit-too-small.

Jeff Dillon, owner of Dillon's Heating & Cooling, says, “If you have ever gone into an area of your house and found it cooler or warmer than other parts of an otherwise reasonably cool home, several things may be responsible for this, and one of these is an air conditioner system that is too small for the space. It is important to consider several factors, such as SEER rating, budget, quality, ductwork, and square footage of the home, to avoid ending up with an air conditioning system that is too small for your home.”


Low airflow is one of the signs that the AC unit is too small. The home’s residents may notice that the air coming through the vents appear to be less than forceful when the temperatures rise. Weak airflow may also be caused by dirty air filters, thus it is always a good idea to check the filters first.

Another potential sign that the AC is too small for the home is a constantly running or cycling air conditioning. The AC unit should reach the temperature selected after a certain time and it should shut down. If it cycles repeatedly and is unable to reach the set temperature, it is likely too small for the home. This can impact energy consumption and electricity costs.

If the home is not cool enough, one of the many possible reasons is that the AC is too small for the home. It may be advisable to call in a professional HVAC technician to eliminate the other possibilities, such as dirty air filters, dirty coils, a clogged condensate life, or a refrigerant leak.

Another potential indicator is inconsistent temperature in the home. If there are areas of the home or rooms that are significantly hotter or cooler, the AC unit could be too small for the square footage of the home. The AC unit should be powerful enough to cool all the rooms and spaces to the same temperature. It is vital to call a professional HVAC technician to check the size of the AC unit and make sure that energy and money are not being wasted in trying to cool a home that has not the capacity to do so.

And, finally, when the utility bills are high, it may be that the AC is not big enough to cool the home. If it is not cool enough, people in the home will adjust the thermostat but this will result in some parts of the home becoming too cold but the desired temperature is not reached in other parts of the home. When the AC system continuously runs, energy and money are being wasted.

If the homeowner suspects that the AC is too small, it may be a good idea to get the services of a professional HVAC technician from Dillon's Heating & Cooling to assess the capacity of the AC unit. Homeowners and other property owners may want to take advantage of an annual maintenance plan offered by the HVAC company to help prevent costly repairs and also to extend the life of the HVAC system. A professional HVAC technician from Dillon's Heating & Cooling is equipped with the experience and knowledge to determine the appropriate size of the air conditioning unit for the home.
