    Good, well thought out article. I can’t agree more that buy the correct size of unit for the area you are looking to cool is vital when it comes to getting g the most out of a pac unit. If it’s under powered you’ll be wasting energy and won’t get the room down to a desired temperature. But if it’s overpowered you’ll also be using up too much energy, not to mention cost.
