7-16-06 – Local heating and cooling companies say they’re being flooded with calls from people who complain that their AC units are not working hard enough. However, contractors say there’s only so much the units can do when the temperatures soar into the triple digits.
Typical units are designed to keep a home twenty to twenty five degrees cooler than the air outside. When temperatures climb past 100 degrees, the units can only cool homes to around 78 or 80 degrees.
A do-it-yourself suggestion: contractors say putting a garden hose or sprinkler against an outdoor AC unit will make it easier for the appliance to cool the air by a degree or two.
