Getting the right sized air conditioner is more important than you might think.

Having a system that is too small can shorten the life of the air conditioner, since it has to work harder to heat or cool the room. This also means that it can take much longer to reach the temperature you want, or never get there at all. Your power consumption will also rise, meaning any savings you made on the initial cost of purchasing the system will eventually be outweighed by the increase to your electricity bill.
