  • What is the most efficient way to operate my air conditioner?
    The set point on your air conditioner is crucial to how much it costs to run. In summer the higher you can have the set point and still be comfortable the better. In winter the lower you have the set point the better. This makes the outdoor unit run for less time which is where the main power consumption is drawn.
  • How many years does an AC last?
