not only the consumption of electricity being used, but on your home A/C unit.
Talked with the A/C guy at the mall yesterday. He said most times, it cools off enough at night that your home unit will shut off once in a while..but here in OK lately that does not happen as night temps are still in the high 80's! So he said his company alone is back logged up to two months on repairing/installing units where the compressors have burned up!
He says we need to manually turn off the unit for about 30 minutes 2-3 times a day to allow it to repair/heal itself from the constant running!
Trying to convince "Mr it needs to be 74 at all times" DH of this is not going to be easy!
