Myth: Bigger is Always Better When It Comes to HVAC Systems

Many homeowners believe that investing in the largest possible heating or cooling system will ensure optimal comfort and efficiency. However, this is a common misconception. Here’s why:

  • Oversized systems cycle on and off more frequently, leading to increased wear and tear, and potentially higher energy costs.
  • Properly sized equipment operates more efficiently, providing better dehumidification and temperature control.
  • Incorrect sizing can lead to uneven cooling or heating, hot and cold spots, and increased noise levels.

The key to maximizing comfort and efficiency lies in professional load calculations and proper system sizing.
