The Truth About Air Conditioner Sizing

At Northeast Heating, Cooling and Refrigeration Co., Inc., we often encounter misconceptions about air conditioning systems. One of the most common myths we hear is that bigger AC units always cool better. Today, we’re here to debunk this myth and provide you with accurate information to help you make informed decisions about your home’s cooling needs.

Why Bigger Isn’t Always Better

Many homeowners believe that installing a larger air conditioning unit will result in a cooler home. However, this is not necessarily true. Here’s why:

  • Overcooling: An oversized AC unit can cool your home too quickly, leading to short cycling.
  • Humidity issues: Larger units may not run long enough to effectively remove humidity from the air.
  • Energy inefficiency: Oversized units consume more energy without providing additional comfort.
  • Increased wear and tear: Frequent starting and stopping can lead to premature system failure.

The Importance of Proper Sizing

At Northeast Heating, Cooling & Refrigeration, we emphasize the importance of correctly sizing your air conditioning system. A properly sized unit will:

  • Maintain consistent temperature and humidity levels
  • Operate more efficiently, saving you money on energy bills
  • Have a longer lifespan due to reduced strain on components
  • Provide optimal comfort for your home
