Is Bigger Really Better When It Comes to Air Conditioning?

At Ferran Services, we often encounter customers who believe that a larger air conditioning unit will automatically lead to better cooling and increased efficiency. Today, we’re here to debunk this common misconception and provide you with the facts about AC sizing.

The Myth: Bigger AC Units Are Always More Efficient

Many homeowners assume that purchasing an oversized air conditioner will:

  • Cool their home faster
  • Provide more comfort
  • Save money on energy bills

The Reality: Proper Sizing is Key

Contrary to popular belief, an oversized AC unit can actually lead to several problems:

  1. Short cycling: The unit turns on and off frequently, reducing efficiency and increasing wear and tear.
  2. Inadequate dehumidification: Larger units cool too quickly to remove enough moisture from the air.
  3. Higher energy costs: Frequent starts and stops consume more energy than steady operation.
  4. Uneven cooling: Some areas may become too cold while others remain warm.
