You don’t have to be a certified HVAC technician to understand the key components of your air conditioning system. In fact, having a better grasp of the basics will help you save money and even avoid costly repairs down the road.
The following resource The Refrigeration School developed covers some of the need-to-know basics of how your air conditioner works, as well as provides some interesting statistics about energy usage and a few pointers that will keep your AC running smoother while saving you some serious cash on those energy bills.
This will be part of a multi-part series to give you some basic tools to learn a little about your AC system. The slides will be as follows:
- How does a HVAC system work?
- Maintenance and repair tips for your AC system.
- How much energy does your AC system use?
Take a closer look at this guide and brush up on your air conditioning basics.
Editors Note: Personally, I feel that 78 degrees is too high for a cooling setpoint. I’m usually more comfortable between 72-74 degrees, but to each their own! I would also recommend not shutting off the AC completely when you’re away from home, but raising the temperature up about 5-10 degrees. That will make for a faster recovery time.
