What Kind Of Air Conditioning Do I Need?
Single-stage air conditioning is the most common and least efficient type. They are either performing at full capacity or they’re off. Two-stage systems run at about 70% capacity most of the time. When the need arises, they step up to 100%. This provides more energy efficiency and better dehumidification. Some homeowners experience a 30-40% energy savings with a variable speed system.
What About Cost?
Variable speed systems can cost more initially, but we’ve already mentioned the savings that can result.

Do You Have Any Recommendations For Keeping Cool During The Summer?
Changing to clean air filters can reduce energy consumption by up to 15%. Outside, check the unit regularly and clear any debris or vegetation that could block airflow. Based on a recommendation from the U.S. Department of Energy, 78 degrees is the ideal temperature during the summer. Fans and your AC system can also work together to cool your home efficiently. And a smart thermostat can regulate the temperature of your home and help save energy.
