Should Two Level Homes Have More Than One A/C Unit?

Friday, August 15th, 2014

It can be challenging to maintain a comfortable temperature in an older two-level home with only one central air-conditioning unit. Using two systems has many advantages over a single unit, but it is not always the best choice. The age and design of your house may affect your decision, along with the costs of purchasing and running a second central air-conditioning unit.

Costs to Consider

Purchasing two central air-conditioning units can be more expensive initially than purchasing a single unit, but the cost difference may not be as much as you think. You need either two smaller units or one larger unit to run the entire house. The added cost of the second unit may be offset by the energy savings. Much depends on your house and how you use the air conditioner.

Balancing Your Home’s Temperature

In many older homes, it is difficult to keep the entire house at the same temperature. The second floor is often much warmer than the first, so one area of the house often seems too hot or two cold. Using separate central air-conditioning units for each floor allows you to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the entire house.

Saving Household Energy

A single non-zoned central air-conditioning unit requires you to keep all areas cool, even when some are not in use. In many homes, the first floor can be cooled during the daytime and turned off at night, while the upstairs bedrooms may only need to be cooled at night. In this situation, separate central air-conditioning units can result in significant energy savings. This situation can also be solved with a zoned air-conditioning unit.

Cooling System Failure

If one of the central air-conditioning units goes out, you may be able to keep the house cool enough with the other unit until repairs are made, though this is only important in areas where summer temperatures are extreme. Having two units also doubles the chance of system failure and increases the cost of repairs overall.

Advantages of a Household Zoning System

It is possible to install a single central air-conditioning unit, with two or more thermostats, that can cool the house equally. A zoned system includes dampers within the ductwork that open and close to regulate the flow of air and temperature in each zone. A regular central air-conditioning system, by contrast, pushes cool air to all parts of the house. A single zoned system has many of the advantages of a two-unit system: The house is divided into two or more zones — in this case, upstairs and downstairs. Each zone of the house can be turned down or closed off to save energy. The thermostat in each zone controls the temperature in the zone. A zoned system costs more to install than a regular single air-conditioning unit, but the energy savings may make up the difference over time.

If you have any questions regarding your current cooling system, how to program your thermostat, or if it’s time for a new A/C unit, please give us a call. One of our experienced technicians would be happy to answer your questions and explain the options that might best suit your family’s needs. Please visit https://www.cooltouch.us.

Watch Out for these Air Conditioning Nightmares

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Living in Phoenix AZ has many luxuries. We get seven months of really awesome weather which makes up for the other five months of really intense heat. In Phoenix we have all major sports teams, all the big concerts, beautiful lakes and mountains, and if you want to ski in the winter you can drive two hours north and get radical, and when you’re done, you can drive back down to the valley back into seventy degree temps. The valley of the sun also offers some of the best fine dining in the country and we’re becoming more well known for our micro brews and wine.

Having many luxuries in our large city can also have it’s negatives. As mentioned above, our summers are brutal with temps reaching as high as 115 degrees. With so many people living out here and so many HVAC contractors to choose from, sometimes it’s a bit overwhelming to choose the most qualified and most honest and trustworthy.

Making sure our air conditioning units are running efficiently before the summer heat get’s here is very important. Having an a/c unit breakdown in the middle of 115 degree heat is no fun at all. You can put your family and pets in a lot of danger if your home does not having cool air flowing through it during these hot summer days. That’s why it’s so important to research the local air conditioning repair and installation companies in your town. Here’s at Cool Touch we have a perfect rating with the Phoenix Better Business Bureau and a perfect rating with YELP. Yelp is a very popular website that people use to check out the local services in their cities. You can get reviews from people who have used your services and usually if you come across a company profile like ours, you’re more than likely to call and use our services.

Back in May 2014 (this year), a woman in Florida needed to have an air conditioning repair technician come out to her home for what was supposed to be a quick fix of her stuck thermostat. When the a/c tech got to her home he tried to pull a fast one. Just because this was in Florida does not mean that Phoenix Arizona does not have these types of con artists. You need to do your due diligence and select only the local HVAC contractors that have good track records, even if that means paying a little more. Get it done right the first time and protect yourself from being swindled out of thousands of dollars.

Remember, sometimes you may pay more for a service call, but usually if the company has a solid history, you’re not going to pay much more than the service call fee or for service work that may need to be done. I’d rather pay for those things than get hosed out of a few hundred or even thousands of dollars for equipment that I never even needed in the first place.
