While minimizing the cost, many people look for different methods to maintain a cool home efficiently. They are often exposed to false claims and solutions that will offer cooler homes with inexpensive costs as people look for the solutions. We at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to take the opportunity to share a handful of them and set the record straight in an effort to help you bypass these myths.
Is it Cheaper to Leave the AC On All Day?
In general, it is cheaper to leave the AC on all day during very hot temperatures. After even just a couple of hours, your AC will have to work hard to lower the temperature back to a comfortable level. This can take a long time and place too much strain on the system. Rather than turning it off when you are away and turning it back on when you get home, you use less energy by maintaining a cool empty home.
Location of a Thermostat Matters
The thermostat location does matter a great deal because your air conditioner operates according to the temperature of where it is placed and not the entirety of your home. According to external variables as well as areas that are drafty should be avoided when you install a thermostat, areas where the temperature can drastically change. Also, avoid exterior walls and only install your thermostat on an interior wall.
HVAC Maintenance is Worth It!
Where you want to ensure a professional does any repairs, air conditioning services should not be limited to the repairs alone. To ensure your HVAC system not only last longer but operates more efficiently, air conditioning maintenance is an important part of care. You can expect to have some major repairs during your air conditioner’s lifetime if the time you call for air conditioning service is for a repair.
It is Bad to Turn Thermostat Up & Down Constantly
It simply does not help when you turn down the cooling temperature at the thermostat to the lowest temperature. There is only so much cool air your system can blow at once. Try changing the filters or performing a tune-up instead, if you feel the cooling system is in adequate, and to improve cooling performance.
Ceiling Fans Alone Cannot Keep a Home Cool
Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans do absolutely nothing to cool the air inside your home. A fan won’t do anything for you in fact unless you are in the room while it is on, and the room is previously cooled with the air conditioning. Since it only creates a wind-chill effect, a ceiling fan has nothing to do with your home’s actual air temperature. A ceiling fan can help promote better circulation and better manage your home’s cool air in tandem with your cooling system.
