A lot of people, when installing a new furnace or air conditioner, go by what we call “grandma’s pot mentality.” You’ve probably heard it–if you only buy one pot, buy the biggest one you’ll ever need. It’s a common sentiment, and while we’re not sure it’s always true for pots, it is true for lots of other things! But that’s a problem when it comes to getting new HVAC equipment, because the “biggest pot” line of thought is dead wrong when it comes to heating and cooling your home. Bigger isn’t better in this case! Nor is smaller. In fact, we’re with Goldilocks on this one: the best system for your home is the one that’s just right.
