How humid should my home be
Proper balance of your humidity inside the home is essential to not only feeling comfortable, but also could also be dangerous to your health. If your humidity is too low you can get nosebleeds, dry throat, and ashy skin. It can also affect your energy bill! The optimum level for your humidity should be around 30%-40%.
How many BTU’s does my Air Conditioner Need?
The number of BTU’s (British Thermal Units) needed depends on the size of your home or the area you are cooling. For a rough estimate, figure out the total square footage of your home or the area you are cooling, and multiply that by 24 to determine the minimum BTU’s necessary. For a more precise number, talk to an air conditioning professional.
Why is my Air Conditioner constantly running but not blowing cold air?
A common cause for an air conditioner that seems always to be running but not blowing cool air is a dirty condenser. Your air conditioning unit could also leak, or the unit may be out of refrigerant.
What causes Air Conditioners to frost over on the outside?
There is so much humidity in the air that the evaporator can sometimes get cold enough to cause excess moisture to build frost. Freezing most often occurs because the coils or filters are dirty, but it could also be a sign that your air conditioner is low on refrigerant.
What does SEER mean?
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and is a measurement of the seasonal or annual efficiency of an air conditioner.</p
How do I fix a frozen Air Conditioner?
If your air conditioner is frozen, a temporary solution is turning off the unit until it thaws out. To prevent the problem from happening again, clean the coils and filters. If the problem continues to occur, you may need to have a professional inspect your air conditioning system for leaks.
How long does an Air Conditioner typically last?
The lifespan of an air conditioner can vary significantly from location to location. Air conditioners located in warm climates and close to the ocean usually need to be replaced more often than those found in cooler, dryer climates.
