Debunking the Myth: Bigger AC Units Always Cool Better

The Truth About Air Conditioner Sizing

At Ware’s Heating & Cooling, we often encounter misconceptions about air conditioning systems. One persistent myth we’d like to address is the belief that bigger AC units always cool better. This oversimplification can lead to inefficient cooling and unnecessary expenses.

Why Bigger Isn’t Always Better

Many homeowners assume that a larger air conditioner will cool their home more effectively. However, this isn’t necessarily true. Here’s why:

  • Short cycling: Oversized units cool too quickly, leading to frequent on-off cycles
  • Reduced efficiency: Short cycles prevent the unit from reaching optimal performance
  • Inadequate dehumidification: Shorter run times mean less moisture removal from the air
  • Higher energy bills: Frequent starts consume more power than consistent operation

The Importance of Proper Sizing

When it comes to AC installation, size matters – but in terms of accuracy, not magnitude. A correctly sized unit will:

  • Maintain consistent temperatures
  • Effectively control humidity
  • Operate efficiently, reducing energy costs
  • Have a longer lifespan due to less wear and tear
