Ac Units Are Fans Of Fans

Ac Units Are Fans Of Fans

Air conditioning units and fans can work together for your benefit. Fans are a great way to circulate the fresh air throughout your house. It eliminates added stress on your air conditioner and saves you money on your electrical bill.

As the Fan Turns

Do not wait until it becomes unpleasantly warm inside of your house, to turn your fan on. In doing such, you can overwork your AC unit. Instead, turn on the fan with the AC to have them work together.

Be sure that your fan is turned in the correct direction. For the warmer months, the fan should be pushing the air downwards. You should feel a light wind coming from the fan. If it feels like it is not bringing the chilly air down; look up at the fan to confirm that it is turning in a counter-clockwise direction.

In order to switch your ceiling fan over to the correct blade direction, first turn your fan off. Next, look near the motor casing. The switch is located near the housing unit. Turn the switch into the opposite direction.  Finally, turn the fan back on and you should be able to feel the cool breeze coming down.

The Circulatory Method

Now that you have your fan spinning in the correct manner; you need to turn your AC on to match the outside temperature.  For example, if it is 90 degrees outdoors, then set your thermostat to 88 or 86 degrees. Turn on your fan and allow time for the air to properly circulate.

By keeping the air set close to what the temperature is outside, the AC does not burn out. When you turn your fan on with your AC, you have the potential to drop down by another 4 degrees.

Your AC, though blowing out colder air, tends to keep the air stationary. Depending on its location, it may not be able to properly keep the flow of air to your advantage. Either a ceiling fan, or a floor fan, will help to keep the air flowing. If your room is on the second floor, you may notice that it gets warmer since heat rises. Having a fan can interrupt the stale cold air and force it to flow around the room.

When to End

If you are not in a room, do not run the fan. Whether it be a ceiling fan, or a stand-alone fan, they are only good for cooling you down. Remember to turn off any/all fans to save on your electricity.

If you and your family are gone for the day, turn your AC off, while keeping all the blinds and curtains closed. This helps to prevent your house from becoming uncomfortably warm and keeps your electricity bill down. Should your AC unit fail you contact Tallahassee Air Conditioning and Electrical, LLC.

I Highly recommend Tallahassee Air. Their prices were unbeatable but more importantly their customer service was beyond exceptional. Our AC went out on a weekend and after hours and we had portable air conditioners delivered to us within an hour and they began working immediately. All technicians were very knowledgeable and courteous. They made sure to leave our home cleaner then it was when they arrived. My house has never been cooler. Thanks guys!!!!

Had AC repairman Ryan Houston respond to my home. He took the time to find the problem and went out of his way to make sure I was satisfied. I am often suspicious of repairmen because of the “ripoffs”. But Ryan gave me a different view of honesty. Thanks for sending him my way. God bless you!

We needed insulation and duct work done. We tried to obtain several estimates, unfortunately the local Havana businesses were not interested . Tallahassee Air came through with a reasonable quote. Laramie performed the work very thoroughly. He was very professional, polite and would recommend this company to anyone. Thank you for the fine work!

I wholeheartedly recommend Tallahassee Air for your AC needs. Our unit stopped working over the Labor Day weekend and a technician was out within hours. Ryan Houston did and excellent job of explaining the issue and our options. He was very friendly and polite and fixed the problem in a timely and thorough manner. We were so impressed with the service that we signed up for a maintenance membership and will be using Tallahassee Air to install a new unit. Thanks, Ryan! Addendum: Ryan also installed our new unit, and despite a few ordering snafus he went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of as quickly as possible, providing us with a portable unit for the bedroom and working well into the morning hours to get the job done. Ryan has an impressive work ethic and should be commended for the excellent customer service he provides.

Jimmy and his crew came out o check my system. They comfirmed that the company that installed the unit was trying to scam to get more money . They said a 6 month old system had discontinued parts. 6800 for a 4300 dollars system sold to a senior citizen. They tried to scam more money from him. I called Jimmy at Tallahassee Air. They got it right the first time .thanks for being honest and fast.
