What You Can Do to Decrease the AC Strain on Your Unit

Find Out How to Lower Indoor Humidity in the Summer

Indoor HumidityIndoor humidity can be helpful to make a house feel warmer in winter, but it’s definitely not an advantage during hot summer weather. High humidity makes a warm environment feel even hotter than it actually is.

What’s the Link Between Outside Temperature and AC Ability?

The cooling ability of your air conditioner and the temperature outside are inextricably linked. The laws of physics enforce a basic fact: Heat naturally flows from a hotter zone into a cooler zone.  The hotter it is outside your home and the cooler it is indoors, the more heat infiltration occurs, pushing the cooling ability of your air conditioner to its limits.
