Is a bigger HVAC system better than a smaller one?
Not necessarily. There are many considerations when purchasing a new system, including square footage of your home, whether it is one- or two-story, and what are your other needs/wants in an HVAC system. It is very important that you purchase a system that is configured for you, your family and your home.
