Should You Still Run Your AC Unit?

Welcome back!

In our last blog, we discussed a couple of reasons why you should still be running your air conditioning. The
first reason is the fact that it is still August, which means the average temperature is 86 degrees which means your house will be about 30 degrees hotter than the temperature outside, so it’s definitely necessary to run your AC. The second reason we discussed is the fact that people sleep better at night when their room is set to a cool 65 degrees. It shouldn’t be too hard to get your room to that temperature at night. While these reasons are great, they aren’t the only reasons to continue running your air conditioner, so here are a couple more.

Reasons To Run Your Air Conditioning

  1. Summer Isn’t Over – The hot weather will continue into September and with the way Colorado weather can be, it could even be hot in October. Regardless, the end of summer isn’t here until the end of September, so your home probably still needs air conditioning.
  2. It’s More Efficient – If we haven’t stressed enough that it’s still hot outside, it’s important to understand how much harder your air conditioner has to work to cool your house down after a long day of sitting in the heat without airflow or a cooling system. When your air conditioner has to work that much harder, it costs more in energy, costing you more money. Keep your home at 75 degrees while you’re out, and it will be much easier to cool down later in the day.

When you’re beginning to wonder whether or not it’s warm enough to run your air conditioning unit, consider these reasons that it might be necessary. If you notice that your air conditioner might have taken a beating over the summer and is in need of an AC repair, then be sure to contact Premier Heating and Air today.
