Knowing When to Run Your AC
With summer is in full throttle, hopefully, your AC is keeping your home cool and comfortable. With the high heat of July/August, you want to keep your AC running to keep your home cool and combat the heat. If you turn your AC on and off to correspond with temperatures, you may be overworking your unit on hot days to keep up. We recommend you at least keep your thermostat at a moderately high setting (around 75-80) rather than turning it off, to avoid overworking the system.
When the temperatures start to drop, you’ll want to adjust the thermostat and eventually turn it off when temperatures consistently reach the low 60’s. Your AC unit was not designed to run in cold temperatures and running it when temperatures are below 60 may damage the compressor, which can be a costly repair.
