When you're installing a new cooling service, you may look for ways that you could lower your air conditioning bills. After all, your AC bills are often the most expensive bills you have. The great news is that by switching to a variable speed AC, you'll be able to lower your cooling bills.
How Variable Works
When using a single speed AC, your AC will be operating at full blast continuously. When on, the AC will deliver a full blast of chilled air. When the AC is no longer needed, it will cycle off. This is the least efficient way to have a space cooled. It's more effective to have the AC switch from one speed to another based on the needs of your home. As the temperature rises, the AC may switch to a higher speed. Then, as it becomes cooler during the evening, the AC may switch to a slower speed. This is the least expensive way to lower the temperature of your home.
Because a variable speed AC does not constantly operate at full power, it is not as loud as other types of AC units, and some owners claim to never hear their AC cycle on and off. Also, the process of constantly turning on and off causes your electric bills to spike. Variable speed units are able to distribute air throughout your home more efficiently and are able to condition rooms that are far away from the AC unit.
When you are suffering from allergies, you'll want a variable speed blower. This will ensure that the allergens are circulated out of the air. You might suddenly discover that you don't have any allergies at all. Also, make sure to change your AC filters at the recommended intervals.
Circulate the Air
If you are tired of your home smelling stale, you might need a variable speed blower upgrade. When your AC is operating at a longer period of time, at a slower speed, it will circulate air better and your home will smell better.
One of the best advantages of an AC is that it draws moisture out of the air, which can serve as humidity control. However, if your AC is not operating continuously, it will not reduce the humidity as much. For this reason, and the others listed above, you should consider a cooling installation service that will install a variable AC.
