In this post, Mechanical Technologies, an expert at air conditioner and swamp cooler maintenance, shares some essential information about residential air conditioners.
A central air conditioner typically uses the furnace or air handler fan to draw warm air in through the ducts in your home. As the air is blown across the evaporator coil, heat is then removed from the air and cooled down. The removed heat gets absorbed into the refrigerant running through the coil. This refrigerant is then pumped to the condenser, which is responsible for expelling the heat into the outside air, cooling the refrigerant sent back into your home. This process starts over and over again until you turn the unit off.
One of the ultimate energy-saving hacks for your air conditioner is to upgrade to a smart thermostat. This piece of technology allows you to control your air conditioner from your mobile device. You can set it and forget it, as it learns your preferences and builds a schedule of the hours when your household actually needs your air conditioner.
in addition to investing in a smart thermostat, you should also carry out home AC repair as needed. Don’t ignore any air conditioning issues; address them immediately so that they won’t affect the rest of your home and the efficiency of the unit.
Get an appropriately-sized AC unit or your home to ensure proper cooling and comfort levels, especially throughout the summer season. Some of the factors that you should consider when determining the right size for your air conditioner includes the number of bedrooms in your home, the size of your house, the types of windows you have and the kind of sun exposure that your home gets.
