Do you mean for cooling capacity? Two 9,000BTU, 120V units will cool the same as one 18,000BTU, 240V unit. You might even get more cooling efficiency and temperature control for a larger space since they will cycle on-off as needed for their particular areas.
Electrical efficiency is probably similar, although the larger unit might require a bit more current to overcome the larger compressor HP.
