Monday, July 8th, 2024

But what about an oversized AC? That doesn’t sound so bad—having too much cooling shouldn’t be a problem. 

Unfortunately, you can’t err on the side of being too big with an AC. An oversized air conditioner will create many problems. If you plan on an air conditioning replacement in Maysville, make sure you work with professionals like ours so your AC will be the exact size it needs to be.
