An AC unit does not create cool air
What happens in the air conditioning process is actually the removal of any heat from the air. Your AC uses a chemical called refrigerant to remove any heat and then transfer it outside. The warm air will run through the lines and coils in your unit and then processes from a liquid to gas and then back again. During this entire process, the refrigerant removes any heat and transfers it elsewhere so that when the air comes out the other side, it is cooled air.
Your AC will also remove humidity
Lower humidity will help with the overall comfort level in your home by making you feel cooler, even if the temperature remains the same.
Your air filter should always be checked and replaced every three to six months or more often if needed (depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations).
A dirty air filter will highly restrict any airflow, which reduces efficiency and costs you money. Over time, this will stress your unit and could cause a very costly repair.
Your air conditioner needs maintenance
Your air conditioner requires regular checkups to keep it running in great shape. Performing regular annual preventative maintenance will keep your system running longer with fewer breakdowns over time.
A higher SEER means better efficiency
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is used to measure air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is then calculated by the cooling output for a regular cooling season and divided by the total electric energy input during a similar time frame. A higher SEER rating means better energy efficiency.
