Monday, September 12th, 2022

We’re not expecting anyone to be an HVAC expert, especially with how much training is required to actually get licensed and be a pro. If you’ve been told why short cycling is bad before but you just forgot, then this blog post is perfect for you. We’re going to talk about why short cycling is so bad for the efficiency and longevity of your air conditioner, and why it might end up requiring an early replacement if you’re not careful.

Ambient Comfort’s Guide to Efficiency

Monday, July 18th, 2022

Ah, efficiency. It’s one of the most important aspects of air conditioning, heating, and indoor air quality. Ever since energy prices started to rise and we’ve dealt with the effects of climate change, it became clear that energy is going to cost us. Every time you switch on a TV, and every time you turn on a light in your home, that consumes a certain amount of electricity that’s going to cost money paid to the utility company. The more energy you use, the more you pay for the electricity. And, as things are today, an air conditioner consumes the largest amount of electricity of any appliance in homes throughout Greenwich, Hainesport, and even Evesham.

In order to measure how effective your air conditioner is, or the condition it’s in, we need to talk about its efficiency. This blog is devoted to all things efficiency—what it is, why it’s important, and what you can do to improve your HVAC efficiency in Cumberland County.
