Some of the Factors to Consider in Air Conditioning System Design

To beat the summer heat, a functional air conditioner is considered a necessity. Ideally, it delivers comfort when you need it the most, for as long as possible. However, investing in an AC system that isn’t suitable for your needs can literally cost you a lot of money. To choose the right air conditioner for your home, you’ll have to keep a few important things in mind. Here are some of the factors to consider in air conditioning system design:

1. Your budget

The price of the unit and the installation costs that come with it will play a major role in selecting the AC system for your home.


You can expect to pay anywhere from $4,500 to $9,000 for a unit, inclusive of installation costs, depending on its quality, durability and cooling abilities.


Room fans, window units and portable AC units are just some of the less expensive options if you don’t want to invest more money in an AC.

2. Size of the room

Choosing the right size and BTU capacity is an important decision, especially when it comes to window units. BTU tells you the amount of energy your AC consumes to remove heat from your home within an hour. Essentially, the bigger the room, the more powerful your AC should be, and the higher the BTU rating required.


Getting a unit with more BTUs required may raise your energy costs. Buying a unit with too few BTUs may create uneven temperatures and still raise energy costs, too, since your unit may keep running to try cooling your home.


In general, a square foot of space will require about 20 BTUs of cooling. If the size of your room is 300 square feet, you need a 6000 BTU air conditioner. Keep in mind that a 6000 BTU AC will consume more energy than a 5000 BTU unit. Therefore, a unit that’s appropriate for the size of your space will prevent unreasonably high energy costs.

3. The type of system you prefer

There are different types of AC systems, such as window air conditioners, portable air conditioners, ductless mini-splits, central air conditioners and more.


Each type is designed with a specific purpose in mind. For example, smart air conditioners are often more expensive, requiring Wi-Fi connectivity to work, while other types won’t require a hefty set up cost.

Install the Right AC System for Your Home

An AC system that’s appropriate for your home doesn’t just keep you comfortable and protected from the scorching weather. It also gets the job done efficiently without wasting energy. With a properly designed AC system, you won’t have to worry about poor performance and unreasonable operating costs.
