How many tons of AC do you need for your home? On average, you will need around 0.0016 tons per square foot, or in other words you need 1 ton per 600 sq feet. Homes between 600-1200 feet will need an AC unit that is 1.5 – 2 tons. Obviously the less tons you have, the harder it is to cool the area. A larger home with a smaller AC unit may experience more wear an tear than having the proper system.
Your AC unit installation should be the proper size so that you get efficient air cooling. You do not want too many tons because there is no need to have that much power for a smaller house. You may waste money if your home is cooled too quickly or it is not in sync with your cooling patterns. A digital thermostat can help turn on and off AC so that your home is never too cold or too hot. You should use an AC tonnage calculator (Square footage of home / (divided by) 600 = # of recommended AC tonnage).

Whether you need the same number of tons, more or less, you can trust Aura to handle the job.
