How Big Should My HVAC Unit Be?

Finding the right size HVAC

This is a common question most HVAC companies receive. How big should my HVAC unit be? The answer all comes down to BTU’s. BTU stands for the British Thermal Unit. The amount of heat needed to raise one pound of water.

Of course, the size of your house determines the BTU’s needed to keep the house cool in summer or warm in winter. If your HVAC is too small then it won’t cool the house down or keep it warm when needed. If it’s too big you could waste energy. See the chart below to determine the amount of BTU’s needed.
