Separating Fact from Fiction in AC Repair


When it comes to air conditioning repair and maintenance, there are several myths and misconceptions that can lead homeowners astray. At Northeast Heating, Cooling and Refrigeration Co., Inc., we’re committed to debunking these myths and providing our customers with accurate information. In this blog post, we’ll address one of the most common myths regarding air conditioning repair.

The Myth: “Bigger is Always Better When It Comes to AC Units”

Many people believe that a larger air conditioning unit is always better than a smaller one. However, this is not the case. In fact, an oversized AC unit can actually be less efficient and more costly to operate.

Here’s why:

  • Oversized units cycle on and off more frequently, leading to increased wear and tear on the system.
  • Frequent cycling prevents the unit from running long enough to effectively dehumidify the air, leading to a clammy, uncomfortable indoor environment.
  • Larger units consume more energy, resulting in higher utility bills.

The Solution: Proper Sizing and Installation

The key to an efficient and effective air conditioning system lies in proper sizing and installation. A professional HVAC technician from Northeast Heating, Cooling and Refrigeration Co., Inc. will conduct a thorough assessment of your home’s cooling needs, taking into account factors such as square footage, insulation levels, and local climate conditions. This ensures that the AC unit selected is appropriately sized for your home, maximizing energy efficiency and comfort.
