Central A/C Units and Runtime Efficiency
I read that a unit which runs longer during cycles will do a better job because longer run times help dehumidify a house.
Here's the confusing part to me; regardless as to how high the EER is for a unit, wouldn't a longer run time still increase the operating cost? Logically it would seem that a shorter run time would save energy cost. (Assuming the unit is NOT grossly oversized causing it to cycle practically every 5 minutes or so.)
