Checking For Oversized HVAC Equipment
Having an oversized piece of heating and cooling equipment can be just as big an issue as having an undersized one. Too small and your home will get too hot, too large and your HVAC might short cycle. Your home needs a unit that's just right.
How to check for oversized HVAC equipment
See if the setpoint temperature matches the room temperature.
Check when your system turns on and off. Most digital thermostats are factory set to run the system 6 cycles per hour. If your system turns on and off more often than every 10 minutes, your system might be oversized.
