The Truth About HVAC Efficiency: Debunking the Bigger is Better Myth


Size Matters, But Not How You Think

When it comes to air conditioning systems, many homeowners believe that bigger is always better. At Berwyn Western, we often encounter this misconception during HVAC installations and AC repairs. Today, we’re here to debunk this myth and explain why the right size matters more than sheer power.

The Oversized AC Dilemma

Many people think that a larger air conditioner will cool their home faster and more efficiently. However, this isn’t the case. An oversized AC unit can actually lead to several problems:

  • Short cycling
  • Increased energy consumption
  • Inconsistent temperatures
  • Higher humidity levels
  • Premature wear and tear

The Importance of Proper Sizing

A correctly sized AC system will:

  • Maintain consistent temperatures
  • Operate more efficiently
  • Have a longer lifespan
  • Provide better humidity control

At Berwyn Western, our experienced technicians perform thorough load calculations to determine the ideal size for your home’s air conditioning system. We consider factors such as square footage, insulation, window placement, and local climate to ensure optimal performance.
