A few of us have issues with the title of heating and air conditioning. I know I really did; I was to point where I thought that the furnace in the basement was “the A/C”. I was technically ok, but the heating and cooling systems have different main pieces depending on the potency of each device. For instance, the outdoor A/C unit is really the compressor and condenser, which is where the outer air is chilled and transferred indoors. Second, this unit is outside for a reason – it can’t move the air inside the house with more air from indoors, right? While these are more tips about how the a/c system works, there’s things that can be done to make it better with how well it works. Residing in a hot state makes it near impossible for me to see a day any colder than forty degrees outside. Yes, you upper types might think that’s wonderful, but it’s not so great when every other day is in the high 90s and humid! Needless to state, every little thing I can do to help the device run effectively is being finished up. One of the greatest things I could do, given my temperature, was set up a source of blind for the outdoor compressor/condenser unit. Much like having a blind for the garage or parking the car in a shed, the shade provides a significant cutback in accumulation of heat, which will allow the system to work more easily compared to being in direct sunshine. Another big idea I learned was to keep plants at bay – preferably by a couple inches – from the outdoor unit.
