One of the questions we are asked most often is what home air conditioner will keep our home cool, not cost a fortune to run and last a long time. The specific answer to this question can only be done on a case by case basis and I do know that the cheapest and longest lasting air conditioner is one that seldom needs to work. Let me explain… Even on the hottest days of Summer there are those homes that stay cool without the air conditioner running for hours on end. Those homes have the proper insulation and these homeowners know how to use the tools at their disposal to make this goal a reality. Even in this hot valley we live in the coolest time of the day is the morning. Most homes are warmer inside when we get up than outside. First thing in the morning is the best time to turn on the whole house fan and pull that cool air inside. Doing that also cools down your attic where the warm air has been trapped all night. Once it is as cool inside as it is outside you simply close the windows, turn on the whole house fan and let your attic insulation keep that cool air inside. This works better than you can imagine and this expends the life of your air conditioner because what isn’t running is typically not breaking or costing you money!
