What happens if your AC is oversized?

If your AC is oversized, your home will not be as comfortable as it should be. As well, the air conditioning unit may have a shorter lifespan.

There’s no doubt about it – a larger AC unit will cool your home faster. However, this can result in your home being cooled TOO FAST. As a result, you may get hot and cold spots throughout your home. Gradual and even cooling, on the other hand, is achieved the right size air conditioner for your home. Fast cooling can also mean that your AC doesn’t have time to dehumidify the incoming air. Therefore, you’ll have cool but moist air circulating in your home.

An oversized AC can also result in increased energy costs and a decreased lifespan. This is because the unit will be frequently starting and stopping.
