AC Tips

AC Tips

Tips about your comfort

  • You can think about your ac unit as a dual purpose machine---it removes heat and it removes moisture
  • The capacity of your air conditioner is determined by the hottest day
  • On all but the hottest days your ac doesn’t  get to run as much as it needs to (to remove moisture)
  • The solution to increased moisture removal is to have an ac unit that can change its capacity to match the amount of heat coming into the home. This results in very long run times. If the unit is running it is removing moisture. Longer run times does not mean higher utility bills.

Platinum Air Conditioner Units

Variable capacity (modulating) air conditioner

  • Most comfort (uniform temperatures)
  • Most moisture removal

Gold Air Conditioner Units

Two stage cooling
AC runs at either full capacity or two thirds capacity

  • Energy efficient
  • Provides comfort
  • Longer run time aids in moisture removal 

Silver Air Conditioner Units

One stage cooling

  • Lower price

COOLING TIPS

  • Avoid setting your thermostat at a colder setting than normal when you turn on your air conditioner. It will not cool your home any faster and could result in excessive cooling and, therefore, unnecessary expense.
  • Avoid placing appliances that give off heat such as lamps or TVs near a thermostat.
  • LONG-TERM SAVINGS TIPS
  • If your air conditioner is old, consider buying an energy-efficient model. Look for the ENERGY STAR® and EnergyGuide labels -- qualified room air conditioners are 10% more efficient, and qualified central units are about 15% more efficient than standard models.
