How Your AC Works

AC and heating company in Tampa Bay

There is hardly any building or car without an air conditioner these days. It has become a useful component of houses, homes, vehicles, and so on. With each passing day, air conditioning is becoming more and more of a necessity.  Although everyone enjoys a cool room, not all know how the air is cooled. While this may seem like something only a professional air conditioning repair company like EasyBreezy AC may need to know – understanding how something works will help you identify any issues that arise and whether they can be simple DIY AC fixes or require professional AC repair.

Parts Of An Air Conditioning Unit

To understand how an air conditioner works, you’ll need to know the four major components of an air conditioner. These parts are:

  1. Evaporator

The evaporator collects heat from a space via a refrigerant gas. The evaporator coils are where the absorption of heat by the liquid refrigerant takes place, and after the absorption process, the liquid evaporates into a gas.

An additional function of the evaporator coil is to dehumidify the room by drawing out moisture from the incoming hot air.

  1. Compressor

As the name suggests, this is the area in which the compression of the gaseous refrigerant occurs. By increasing the pressure of the gas, the temperature rises. The gas is the transferred to the condenser for conversion.

  1. Condenser

This is where the gas refrigerant is converted back to liquid, and the heat I absorbed from the air is expelled outside.

  1. Expansion Valve

The valve is positioned between the cooling coils of the evaporator and the hot coils of the condenser. Sometimes referred to as the throttling device, it monitors the amount of refrigerant that moves into the evaporator.

How An Air Conditioner Works

When you turn on an air conditioner and select your desired temperature, there is a sensory device in the AC that senses whether there is a difference between the temperature of the room and the one selected by you.

  • If there is, then warm air is taken into the air conditioning system through an intake vent, typically located at the base of the indoor unit or in a central part of your home. Some homes have multiple intake vents. The warm air then follows through your ducts and over the evaporator coils containing the liquid refrigerant. The refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air and turns into hot gas.
  • The hot refrigerant gas is sent to the compressor which is on the unit installed outside. The gas is compressed, further increasing the gas’s temperature.
  • The now high-temperature, high-pressured compressed refrigerant gas is then transferred to the condenser which cools the hot gas back into a liquid. The heat of the gas is released into the open air through metal fins in your outdoor part of the AC unit.
  • The liquid travels through an expansion valve and back into the evaporator as a cool liquid refrigerant. The air passes over the evaporator coils and cools before being blown back into you’re your home.
  • The process is repeated until the desired temperature is achieved.

Early Attempts Of Air Conditioning Systems

AC sales and installation in Tampa Bay. Florida

Before scientists and inventors began experimenting to find artificial means to cooling the air, humans relied heavily on the natural process of sweating and some form of fanning themselves to keep cool during scorching Summer months. In ancient Egypt, the Egyptians would hang wet reeds in the windows of their homes and other buildings to use the water’s evaporation to cool their spaces.

Similarly, in ancient Rome, Romans diverted water from their cities aqueducts through the walls of buildings to create a cooling effect. In the 3rd century, Emperor Elagabalus used more than 1,000 slaves to import snow, building his own mountain of snow in the garden next to his home to keep him cool during the summer.

Inventors and scientists began to get involved in the concept of artificial cooling when Chinese inventor Ding Huan invented the first manually powered rotary fan during the 2nd century. It wasn’t then until the 17th century when Englishman Cornelius Drebbel discovered that adding salt to water cooled the air when the water evaporated. Both John Hadley, a Cambridge University Chemistry professor, and Benjamin Franklin, acclaimed American inventor, continued to experiment with the use of evaporation of other liquids to cool and freeze different objects around 1758.

Using Climate Cooling To Prevent Disease And Make Patients Comfortable

The concept of the necessity of cooling cities began right here in Florida when physician and inventor, Dr. John Gorrie, believing that cooling cities was essential to relieving local residents of “the evils of high temperatures”, began experimenting with the concept of artificial cooling in the 1840s. Dr. Gorrie believed that properly controlling climate temperature was the key to preventing diseases like malaria, and making sick patients more comfortable, thereby making it easier for their bodies to heal.

Dr. Gorrie’s first system of cooling required ice to be shipped to Florida from frozen lakes throughout the north. This clearly caused an expensive logistical challenge to making proper cooling readily accessible, so Dr. Gorrie set out to create a system to cool the air in hospital rooms using an engine powered by a horse, water, and wind-driven sails or steam to pull in air, compress it, and then running cooler air back out through pipes.

When the pipes on his machine unexpectedly froze and began to develop ice, Dr. Gorrie realized there could be another use for his machine and received a patent in 1851 for his unique technology in the first ice machine. However, Dr. Gorrie was not ever able to successfully bring his ice machine to the marketplace.

In the summer of 1881 when U.S. President James Garfield was shot twice by an assassin, naval engineers came together to build a similar ice machine cooling system to keep him cool and comfortable. This new device was filled with cloths soaked in water and used a fan to blow hot air overhead and keep the cooler air closer to the ground.

Incredibly the device can lower the temperature in his room by 20 degrees Fahrenheit, from 95 degrees down to a much more comfortable 75 degrees! Unfortunately, the device required an extreme amount of ice to operate, consuming more than a half-million pounds of ice in only two months.

The modern air conditioning system was developed by engineer Willis Haviland Carrier in the 1900s. Since then design and efficiency have improved, but the general idea of cooling rooms is still quite desirable, especially for Florida residents.

How To Prepare Your HVAC Unit To Survive Hurricane Season

AC repair in Tampa, hurricane season

Anyone who lives in Florida is no stranger to hurricane season and the other severe weather such as tornadoes, tropical storms, and thunderstorms that we are all subject to. And while the Tampa Bay area has not been directly hit by a hurricane since 1921, according to the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Tampa Bay area is one of the top five most vulnerable cities to hurricanes, and many experts estimate that the Tampa Bay area is well overdue for a direct hit, and even unnamed storms have been known to be severe enough to leave behind damage. It may seem like we are in hurricane season year-round at times, but hurricane seasons really runs from June 1 to November 30 each year.

While keeping our families safe is our top priority when severe weather threatens our area, we also can take precautions to ensure our homes are prepared to withstand the damage of a storm. We already know we need to stock up on sandbags to protect our doors and homes from flooding, and to board up our windows, but did you know there are also steps you should take to prepare your HVAC system ahead of a storm? Read on to find out what you should be doing to care for your HVAC unit before, during, and after a major storm.


Table Of Content:



It is impossible for us to properly prepare for any major storm if we don’t understand the risks that are associated with the storm. Hurricanes and other major storms pose many risks to our HVAC units including:


  • Flood Damage

our HVAC systems are designed to withstand normal weather conditions, but not extreme weather conditions that bring an extreme amount of rain and flooding waters with them. This excess water can submerge our equipment and damage it beyond repair.

  • Wind Damage

high winds pose a couple different threats to our HVAC system. High winds can cause pieces of our HVAC equipment to become dislodged, and can also cause trees, electrical poles, and other flying debris to land on our systems and cause damage.

  • Lightning Damage

lightning poses the threat of striking and causing electrical damage to our HVAC systems, just like it can do to any other electrical equipment.

Life’s Hard. Comfort’s Not. Hire Our AC And Heating Services today!




Use the following tips to prepare your HVAC system for a major storm before it arrives:


  • Keep Your Unit Maintained

proper maintenance to your HVAC system is important for many reasons, including keeping it well prepared to withstand the harsh conditions a major storm will bring with it. Having your HVAC system properly checked and maintained by a qualified HVAC professional is imperative to preparing your system for any potential risks well before a storm.

  • Anchor Your Unit

having your HVAC equipment properly installed and anchored is pivotal in protecting it from damage during a major storm. Once you know your HVAC unit is properly installed, you can also secure it with hurricane straps or metal braces to further secure it for threats posed by major storms.

  • Elevate Your Unit

if it is possible, place your HVAC unit on a higher platform and elevate it to protect it from potential flooding and water damage.

  • Clean Up Around Your Unit

look all around your HVAC unit and check for any loose items such as toys, plants, loose and dead tree limbs, and any other loose items that could be potential flying debris hazards.

  • Cover Your Unit

once you have cleared your HVAC system of any existing debris and cleaned up around your HVAC unit, use a nylon or vinyl tarp to cover your unit or cover it by surrounding it with plywood to further protect it from any potential flying debris during the storm.

  • Cool Your Home Before The Storm

major storms are known to cause large power outages, and during the storm you should be cutting the power to your HVAC unit off, so it is wise to cool your home by setting the thermostat slightly lower than you normally would to help keep your home cool a bit longer once the unit is off.


Once the storm has passed careful inspection of your unit is important before you make any decisions on what to do moving forward. Remove any debris that has fallen on your HVAC unit and clear the area around your unit. If your HVAC unit or home has been affected by flooding water, or if you suspect your system may have any other damage, you need to have the HVAC unit professionally inspected before you turn it back on. Once your HVAC system has been properly inspected and cleared, it is important to turn it back on as soon as possible to help dry the inside of the home and limit mold from getting into your HVAC system or ductwork.

Contact EasyBreezyA/C today for your annual HVAC check-up to ensure your system is running the way it should be and is prepared to withstand any threats posed to it throughout the rest of hurricane season! We are also available for post-storm inspections if your HVAC unit has recently been exposed to severe weather and you suspect damage.

HVAC Fact VS Fiction

AC and heating services in Tampa Florida

Debunking The Most Common HVAC Myths People Actually Believe

It seems like anywhere you look there is a ton of information available on your HVAC system, how to properly maintain it, and how to get the most efficient use out of it. But how do you know what is and is not accurate? Don’t worry, there’s no need to sweat over it! We’re looking at the most common myths people believe about HVAC systems and separating fact from fiction to make sure what you believe about keeping your HVAC system properly maintained, efficiently running, and long lasting isn’t just full of hot air.


Table Of Content:
  1. You Only Have To Change Your Air Filter Once A Year
  2. You Only Need To Call A HVAC Professional If You Have A Problem
  3. The Larger The HVAC System, The Better It Will Work
  4. It Doesn’t Matter Where My Thermostat Is Located
  5. Adjusting The Thermostat As High Or As Low As Possible Will Make The HVAC System Heat Or Cool The Room Faster


Myth # 1 – You Only Have To Change Your Air Filter Once A Year

How this one even became such a well believed myth we aren’t sure. Over time your HVAC’s air filter naturally gets filled with dirt and dust, and this dirt and dust will cause your air filter to get clogged and your system to run inefficiently if the air filters are not changed out regularly. When your air filter is clogged, both your air flow and air quality will be reduced. You should check your air filter monthly and change it as necessary, at a minimum you should be changing your air filter every few months (at least 4 times a year)! There are some higher end air filters you can purchase that will not require you to change them as frequently but can be regularly cleaned instead.


Myth # 2 – You Only Need To Call A HVAC Professional If You Have A Problem

This myth is easy (and convenient) to believe because of the old adage “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” But there is a lot more that a HVAC professional can do other than replacing or repairing an HVAC system. Your HVAC system is a complex mechanical system that requires regular maintenance and tune-ups. Regularly maintaining your HVAC system can give your system a longer lifespan and save you money in major repair costs down the road. At a minimum you should have your HVAC system professionally checked and maintained once a year, but twice a year is recommended.


Life’s Hard. Comfort’s Not. Hire Our AC And Heating Services today!





Myth # 3 – The Larger The HVAC System, The Better It Will Work

This is one of the most easily believed myths out there about HVAC systems. It’s easy to believe that bigger means better. But in reality, when it comes to HVAC systems you need the system that is just the right size for the conditions in your home. If your system is too small for your home then it won’t be able to get your home to a comfortable temperature, but if it is too large for your home then it will cause the system to consistently cycle on and off which will end up costing you more money in energy costs and shortens the lifespan of your unit.


Myth # 4 – It Doesn’t Matter Where My Thermostat Is Located

One of the most important factors to ensuring your HVAC system consistently runs as efficiently as possible is making sure you have proper placement of your thermostat. The placement of your thermostat is important because it reads the temperature surrounding it to make sure your HVAC system is running at the right time to keep the temperature where you want it. If your thermostat is placed too close to appliances, electronics, radiators, and windows it might misread the temperature in the room and cause your system to continually turn on and off or to continue running longer than it needs to. The ideal placement for your thermostat will be on an interior wall in a room that you and your family use frequently.


Myth # 5 – Adjusting The Thermostat As High Or As Low As Possible Will Make The HVAC System Heat Or Cool The Room Faster

Many people believe that the higher or lower the temperature is set on the thermostat, the harder the HVAC system will work to achieve that temperature at a faster pace. The temperature that is set on the thermostat does not do anything other than tell your HVAC system what temperature you want your home heated or cooled to. Adjusting the thermostat temperature all the way up or all the way down will not make your HVAC system working any harder or any faster to achieve that temperature, which ultimately means your system will just run longer because it has to go further up or down than necessary.


It is great to know how to use your HVAC system to maximize efficiency, but you also need to make sure you know when to call a professional. If your HVAC system needs a regular maintenance check, a repair, or even a replacement, trust the certified professionals at EasyBreezy A/C!

How To Stay Cool If You Loose Power After a Storm or Hurricane

AC company in Tampa

There is nothing more frustrating than having to battle the heat and humidity in a stuffy home with no AC after you lose power caused by something completely out of your control, like a hurricane. Luckily you don’t have to lose your cool just because your AC is down. EasyBreezy AC has some creative ways to help you stay cool when you can’t run your AC:

  1. Reduce Heat Coming In From Outdoors
  2. Stay Hydrated
  3. Lay Low
  4. Get Comfy
  5. Take a Drive


Reduce Heat Coming In From Outdoors

The first thing you need to do when your AC breaks is make sure you reduce as much heat coming in from outdoors as possible. You should really do this even when you have power in order to maximize its efficiency. Keep windows and doors closed, and use blinds and curtains to stop too much direct sunlight from coming into your home.

Stay Hydrated

The best way to combat the heat when your AC is broken is to simply keep yourself cool, instead of worrying about how cool the room is. And the best way to keep yourself cool is to keep your body temperature down. The quickest and most efficient way of keeping your body temperature down is internally – making sure you stay well hydrated and eat cool foods. Drinking plenty of water is key! You should also try to eat cool foods like fresh fruits, frozen popsicles and ice cream, smoothies, and salads. As an added bonus, you won’t have to worry about food going bad with the fridge without power.


Life’s Hard. Comfort’s Not. Hire Our AC And Heating Services today!




Lay Low

We often talk about the fact that hot air rises. When you are without power and are cut off from your A/C, then you can use this knowledge to your advantage Avoid using the upper level of your home as much as possible if you have more than one story. Even better is to get down lower if you can. If you have a finished basement that you can use, then head underground to keep yourself cool.

Get Comfy

One of the most difficult parts of dealing with heat in a home without power is getting comfortable enough to fall asleep at night. The first thing you want to do is eliminate any heave comforters and blankets. Use lightweight cotton sheets which breathe more easily. The same thing applies to the clothes you are wearing. The more lightweight the material of your clothing the easier it will be for it to breathe and keep you cool. You should obviously not wear clothing that is too heavy or too long – stick to lightweight shorts and t-shirts instead of jeans and sweaters.

Take a Drive

If it is safe to do so, and you have the ability to do so, then take a drive. A trip in the car with your car’s AC running will feel like quite the improvement over your hot stuffy home. No need to waste gas unnecessarily – if there is a store, shopping center, or even local library that is open and still has power, then check it out for a few hours to keep your family cool and comfortable.

Once power is restored to your home, follow these tips to ensure no additional damage is caused to your home or AC unit after the storm has passed. You can also prep your Air Conditioner in advance by following these tips too.

To Repair Or Replace? Comparing Your AC Options

AC repair in Tampa, Westchase and Safety Harbor

When it comes time to make a major decision about either repairing or replacing your air conditioning unit you often must rely on the advice of professionals and hope that this advice is reliable. Unfortunately, it isn’t uncommon for less than honest contractors to suggest that an AC unit be replaced when there is really still plenty of life left to it. With the decision of either replacing or repairing your AC unit potentially having major financial consequences, it is important to make sure you are repairing when possible and replacing when the cost of repairs would not be worth it. We get called out to inspect units regularly for a second opinion, so we’ve put together a guide to help you in making the decision to either repair or replace your old air conditioning unit.


Table Of Content:

  1. Can It Be Repaired?
  2. Consider Your Air Conditioner’s Age
  3. Consider The Cost To Repair
  4. Consider The AC Unit Repairs Themselves
  5. Efficiency Of Your AC Unit


Can It Be Repaired?

We often get asked the question “can it be repaired instead of replaced?” Just to be clear, anything can be repaired. But just because it can be repaired doesn’t necessarily mean it should be repaired. Think of your old AC unit just as you would an old car, you want to continue to repair it with minor repairs to get as much life out of it is you can but when the cost of repair begins to exceed the value of just replacing then it is time to part ways.

Consider Your Air Conditioner’s Age

One of the most important factors to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace your AC unit is its age. Generally speaking your AC unit should last between 10 and 15 years, but there are a couple of factors that can cause your unit to last shorter or longer. In states like ours where we rely on our AC units much more frequently than northern states it is more common for an AC unit to last between 10 and 13 years.

AC units that are regularly maintained also tend to have longer lifespans than those that are not regularly maintained. If your AC unit is more than 10 years old and it breaks down, it may be a good idea to start thinking about replacing your unit before you have to start investing money into one repair after another, but of course there are factors other than age to consider as well.


Life’s Hard. Comfort’s Not. Hire Our AC And Heating Services today!


Consider The Cost To Repair

The next thing you want to consider after considering the age of your unit is the cost or repairing the unit. Of course, it is easy to say not to repair the unit if the cost to repair it won’t be worth the investment, but how do you determine if the cost of repair is worth the investment or not? The reason you need to consider the age of your unit first is because it can also affect whether or not the cost to repair is worth it. A high repair cost on a newer unit is likely to be a better investment than a high repair cost on an older unit. A popular rule used to determine whether the investment is worth it is the $5,000 rule – if the age of your unit multiplied by the cost of the repair is greater than $5,000 then you may want to consider replacing your unit.

Consider The AC Unit Repairs Themselves

How often is your current AC unit needing repairs to be done? If your AC unit is needing frequent repairs, then it might be a sign that it’s time for a new unit. If the unit is breaking down within months of repairs, or even year after year, then it is needing repairs too frequently. Your AC unit should not need repairs completed on it more than once in a two-year period.

If your unit does require repairs, rather than general annual maintenance each year, it is likely a sign that your unit will continue to experience more break downs in the future and the cost of those repairs can add up fast, making replacing the unit a much better investment. You should also consider replacing your unit if a major component like the compressor or condenser fails and it is no longer covered under warranty.

Efficiency Of Your AC Unit

The final factor you should consider in deciding whether to repair or replace your AC unit is the efficiency of your current unit. Is your current AC unit running all day? Are your heating and cooling costs increasing? Is your unit just not able to keep every room in your home reasonably comfortable? Newer air conditioning units are designed more efficiently and are better able to handle the demands increasing temperatures and environmental factors place on them. We suggest investing in a newer Energy Star certified efficiency model which can help lower energy costs as well.


If you are unsure whether it is time to repair or replace your current AC unit, or if you just need to have your current unit maintained, contact the professional technicians at EazyBreezy A/C today!

What Is The Best Room Temperature For Studying?

AC and heating services in Tampa Bay

How Room Temperatures Affects Our Brain

Did you know that the room temperature in your home or office affects much more than your body’s physical comfort? Room temperature also affects our brain in many different ways. Let’s take a deeper look with EasyBreezy AC at all the ways the right room temperature can benefit our brain and why.


The Science Behind Temperatures

Before we can look at any of the benefits that can be received from having the right room temperature, we must understand how room temperature affects our brain physically. Most of us probably remember learning in science class that the average body temperature for a human is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, and our brain works really hard to make sure that our bodies maintain this temperature. In order to do this, our bodies use glucose, but heating up and cooling down the body do not require equal amounts of energy or glucose.

Our brains expend greater energy in order to cool our bodies down than it does to warm our bodies up. The more glucose that our bodies are using to regulate our body temperature, the less glucose is available for our brains to use for our higher order cognitive functioning. So, keeping the room temperature at an optimal temperature that will help our bodies naturally maintain our 98.6-degree body temperature, will also improve our brain’s overall ability to function.


Life’s Hard. Comfort’s Not. Hire Our AC And Heating Services today!





Increased Ability To Learn And Effectiveness Of Studying

Just as with the work environment and productivity, there has been a lot of research dedicated to determining whether room temperature affects our ability to learn and the effectiveness of studying, and how.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Special Achievement Award winners set out to answer the question “does the temperature you set for your air conditioner or heating system impact student performance?” They conducted several experiments that included testing students in different climate-controlled rooms.

At 61 degrees Fahrenheit, 72 degrees Fahrenheit, and 81 degrees Fahrenheit, and concluded that temperature does have an effect on a student’s attention span, with students in both the warmer and cooler rooms testing more poorly than the students in the control room which was maintained right around 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

Students that were in the warmest room (81 degrees Fahrenheit) did the poorest on the test with an average score of 72%, those in the coolest room (61 degrees Fahrenheit) performed only slightly better than the students in the warmest room with an average score of 78%, but students in the control room (72 degrees Fahrenheit) scored the highest with an average score of 90%! Another study done by an undergrad student at Loyola University came to the same conclusion that in environments with warmer and cooler room temperatures memory was impacted negatively, and that test scores were significantly higher in a classroom environment that maintained a room temperature around 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

What Is The Best Temperature To Set Your Thermostat At?

New AC setup in Tampa, Westchase and Safety Harbor

Having the right room temperature can improve our productivity, increase the effectiveness of our studying, and even make us happier. So, it really is important to pick the perfect temperature in your home or office. EasyBreezy AC explains you why.


Improved Productivity

There has been a lot of research conducted in hopes of determining the best working conditions for increasing employee productivity. One major study was conducted by Cornell University at a large Florida insurance company in which they tested different office temperatures and productivity, and what they found was that “when temperatures were low (around 68 degrees Fahrenheit) employees made 44% more mistakes than at optimal room temperatures (between 70 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit).

The study points out that the problem is not only that you are physically cold, but also that you are distracted when in cooler temperatures as your brain is using a substantially larger amount of energy to try to keep warm. This means there is now a lot less energy for your brain to apply towards concentration, inspiration, and focus.

This problem also applies if the room is above 78 degrees Fahrenheit and the room temperature is too warm. Being in a room that is too warm can make you feel tired and sleepy, as your brain is using much more energy to try to cool your body down. Without the optimal room temperature in our work environments, it can be difficult for us to relax, concentrate, complete our work, and form new ideas.

Maintaining the right room temperature can also have a significant effect in the workplace if you work in a retail or service industry, as it affects the customer experience as well. Again, the retail and service environments are one in which keeping a moderate room temperature – not too hot and not too cold – is important to maximizing employee productivity and profits.

Although research has found that customers are more likely to be willing to pay more for the same products when they are in warmer temperatures than when they are in cooler temperatures, research has also found that customers are less likely to be willing to stay in a shopping environment if it feels too warm and stuffy.


Life’s Hard. Comfort’s Not. Hire Our AC And Heating Services today!





Improved Mood And Happiness

The same part of our brain that is responsible for recognizing warmth or coolness in temperature is also responsible for activating feelings of trust and empathy towards others. As explained by many researchers, exposure to physical warmth activates the concept of emotional warmth. This means that when the room temperature is warmer, we are more likely to be happy. And just like a warmer room temperature can help us feel happier, a cooler room temperature can make us feel sad and sometimes even depressed.

If you have any questions or concerns about your own heating and cooling system and its ability to maintain the right room temperature in your home or office, contact the professionals at EasyBreezy A/C Services today at 727-856-4822!

The Larger The HVAC System, The Larger The Cost

AC sales and installation in Tampa

Obviously, you know that investing in a larger HVAC system will cost you more money up front to buy the system but having a HVAC system that is too large for your home will also cost more money in operating costs, maintenance and repair costs, and ultimately replacement costs.


Table Of Content:

  1. Short Cycling
  2. Expensive General Maintenance
  3. Expensive Repairs
  4. Excessive Wear and Tear

Short Cycling

It may seem odd that having a smaller, but properly sized, HVAC unit that runs for longer periods of time will use less energy than a system that is larger and doesn’t run consistently, but the reason for this has to do with short-cycling. A unit that is too large for your home will pump out a lot of air in a short period of time, quickly shut off, and then have to turn back on over and over again because the area of your home was not properly cooled. It requires much less energy to keep a smaller unit running consistently to maintain the temperature of your home than it does to have a larger unit start and stop over and over again to go through the cooling cycle repeatedly.

Expensive General Maintenance

Having a HVAC unit that is too large for your home will also cost you significantly more in the maintenance and repair costs, in every aspect, than having a smaller, properly sized unit would cost you. The larger your unit is, the larger and more expensive the air filter it will require is likely to be, and because you will need to change the air filter multiple times throughout the year these costs can really add up quickly.


Life’s Hard. Comfort’s Not. Hire Our AC And Heating Services today!




Expensive Repairs

Additionally, if any repairs need to be made to a larger unit, most of the replacement parts for the unit including fans, motors, and condensers will all be more expensive than they would be for a smaller sized unit. This means if you have a unit that is too large for your home you will consistently be paying more money than you need to in order to maintain and repair the unit.

Excessive Wear and Tear

When you have a larger unit than what you need the short-cycling of the unit causes more wear and tear on the unit, increasing the likelihood of your system wearing down and needing repairs more often. An oversized unit also tends to experience premature failure, meaning you will need to replace the unit sooner than you should need to.

Why Bigger Isn’t Always Better When Choosing A New AC

New AC in Tampa Bay, Florida

When it comes time to upgrade to something new we often want the latest and greatest that technology has to offer, and we typically tend to believe that bigger means better. But when your old HVAC unit goes out and it’s time to replace it with a new AC Westchase, bigger is not always better.


Why Size DOES Matter in a New AC

When you are looking at purchasing a new HVAC unit for your home, size is one of the most important things to consider when choosing your new unit. The truth is in order for your HVAC to work properly and efficiently, it needs to be the right size for your home – and the right size unit for your home is not necessarily determined just on the size of your home, there are many other factors that can come into consideration when determining the right size such as the amount of people in your home, how often and when your system will be used, whether or not you have pets in your home, the type of insulation your home has, the amount of heat-producing electronics and appliances you have throughout your home, and even the amount of windows and doors there are in your home.

An HVAC unit needs to be the just right size, not too big and not too small. Too big and the unit will run inefficiently, use way too much energy, and will not effectively dehumidify the home (making it feel uncomfortable even though the temperature is right), too small and the unit will not be able to keep up with the demand placed on it on warmer days. This is why it is important to work with a licensed HVAC professional that will be able to consider all important factors in determining the right size unit for your home and help you choose the unit that will be best for you.

What Tonnage Is And Why It Is Important

When it comes to your HVAC system, tonnage does not simply refer to the amount that your system weighs. Tonnage is a term used within the HVAC industry to refer to the amount of cooling that an AC unit provides for the space it is installed in. A common misconception about air conditioning units is that it generates cold air to dispense throughout your home, however the cooling process is actually a result of the air conditioning system removing heat and humidity from the home, cooling the air, and then returning the cooler air back into the home.

Tonnage is the amount of heat that a unit can draw out from a home within an hour. So, you might be thinking the bigger the HVAC system is, the better it will be able to remove the heat from your home and cool it, but that is wrong. In order for air conditioning units to work effectively, they not only need to remove the heat from the home, but they also need to remove any excess humidity from the air to keep your home comfortable when it is at the right temperature and having an HVAC system that is too large will mean the system will not run efficiently and will not have the opportunity to effectively remove the humidity from the air.

As you can see, when it comes time to invest in a new HVAC unit for your home, there needs to be a lot of consideration put in to the decision to make sure you are choosing the right size unit for your home – helping you save stress and money in the long run!
