Debunking the Myth of Air Conditioner Oversizing

At Long’s Air Conditioning, Inc., we understand the importance of having an efficient cooling system in the hot and humid climate of central Florida. However, there’s a prevalent myth that a larger air conditioning unit will cool your space faster and more effectively. In this blog post, we aim to debunk this misconception and provide you with valuable insights.

The Myth of Oversizing

Many homeowners believe that installing an oversized air conditioning unit will ensure better cooling performance. However, this is far from the truth. In fact, oversizing your AC unit can lead to numerous issues, including:

  • Increased energy consumption and higher utility bills
  • Frequent cycling on and off, leading to premature wear and tear
  • Inadequate dehumidification, resulting in a clammy and uncomfortable indoor environment
  • Uneven cooling throughout the space

The Importance of Proper Sizing

At Long’s Air Conditioning, Inc., we understand that proper sizing is crucial for optimal performance, efficiency, and comfort. Our experienced technicians use industry-standard calculations and software to determine the ideal size for your air conditioning unit based on various factors, such as:

  1. Square footage of the living space
  2. Insulation levels
  3. Window sizes and orientations
  4. Number of occupants
  5. Climate conditions in your area

By considering these factors, we can ensure that your air conditioning unit is neither oversized nor undersized, ensuring maximum efficiency and comfort.

Our certified technicians are trained to install your unit according to manufacturer specifications and industry best practices.
