Please research the appropriate unit size for your area before purchasing. Above's suggestion of square footage is based on ideal situations where minimal heat is transferred. If the area contains many electrical appliances, windows, or non-insulated areas, your sizing may need to increase above the recommended square footage. Please ask an expert technician for ideal size before purchasing.
You eagerly await the start of fall not for pumpkin spice lattes, but for some much-needed relief from the heat. Even with an air conditioner, your home or building doesn’t stay sufficiently cool. That’s why you’ve decided now to upgrade to a air conditioning system so you’ll be readier for next summer.
You’re still learning a lot about your air conditioner. To make the most of it, you’re curious about its main functions. What are they? That’s exactly what we’ll talk about in this post, so check it out!
This is the feature that most people clamber for when they decide to buy a new air condi
You usually give your air conditioner a break overnight since the temperatures are low enough that you can sleep comfortably without it. Tonight, though, is different. You’re at the beginning of what will be a multi-day heatwave. You suspect you’ll have to sleep with your air conditioner on for the next several nights.
You’re not happy about this, and not only because it’s going to cost you more money on your utility bills. You also have no idea what temperature to set the air conditioner so you don't turn into an ice block overnight.
What is the best AC temperature to sleep soundly? According to Medical News Today, the answer is somewhere between 60 degrees and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Most people prefer temps up to 65, others 67. You might prefer a cool room that’s closer to 60 degrees, or maybe it’s your spouse or partner that does.

You hear the acronym HVAC tossed around all the time, such as an HVAC unit or an HVAC technician. Yet you’re not really sure what HVAC means. You assume it’s related to your air conditioner, but you’re not sure otherwise.
Are HVAC and AC the same or not?
To answer your question, let’s explore HVAC in more detail first.
HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. It’s a type of technology that encompasses indoor comfort in homes, buildings, and vehicles of all kinds. HVAC units have two primary goals. The first is to raise the air quality indoors to an acceptable limit. The second is to increase your thermal comfort, with thermal comfort referring to satisfaction with your environment.
The heating aspect of HVAC can entail furnaces, central heaters, boilers, and heat pumps. The ventilation part of HVAC includes forced or mechanical ventilation as well as passive ventilation. The air conditioning part of the HVAC acronym includes refrigera
We couldn’t imagine foregoing it now, but there was indeed a time in American society in which air conditioning wasn’t available.
To appreciate air conditioning as it is today, we have to look at its history. AC is attributed to the Ancient Egyptians, who were fans of passive air conditioning. Everywhere from Northern India to the Middle East, North Africa, and the Iberian Peninsula caught on and began using this form of air conditioning to beat the heat.
It’s amazing that passive air conditioning could exist in prehistory at all considering that electricity wasn’t invented until 1752. It wasn’t until the early 1900s that Willis H. Carrier developed what became the prototype of air conditioners as we know them in modernity.
At the time, air conditioning was mostly used in paper and printing plants as well as textile mills to prevent moisture from affecting the products. By the middle of the 1900s, domestic air conditioning spread, with the creation of the windo
It’s been a hot minute since you’ve gotten around to cleaning your air conditioner. It’s not like you’ve neglected your AC on purpose. You’ve just had a lot of other things going on that were more urgent.
Your to-do list is getting shorter all the time, so you’ll soon be able to schedule some time to clean the air conditioner. Long before then, you'd noticed that it’s quite dirty. Between now and the time you get to clean it, will your dirty AC cause any health issues?
Certainly, yes. All that dirt that’s trapped within the air conditioner has to go somewhere, and that’s usually out of the HVAC unit and through the vents in your home. There, you and your family will breathe in the dirty, dusty air every single
