Debunking a Common Myth: Bigger is Always Better for AC Units

At Bradley Heating & Air Conditioning, we often encounter homeowners who believe that installing the largest air conditioning unit available is the best solution for their cooling needs. However, this is a widespread myth that needs to be debunked.

The truth is, an oversized AC unit can actually lead to several problems, including:

  1. Inefficient cooling: An oversized unit will cool your space too quickly, causing it to cycle on and off frequently. This can lead to uneven temperatures and higher energy costs.
  2. Increased humidity: When an oversized AC unit cools too quickly, it doesn’t run long enough to properly dehumidify the air, leading to a damp and uncomfortable environment.
  3. Shortened lifespan: Frequent cycling puts extra strain on the compressor and other components, potentially reducing the unit’s lifespan.

The key to optimal cooling efficiency and comfort is to have a properly sized AC unit installed by a professional HVAC technician. At Bradley Heating & Air Conditioning, our experts use industry-standard calculations to determine the right size unit for your home, taking into account factors such as square footage, insulation levels, and window area.
