It's August in Texas and that means that many afternoons our temperatures
reach past 100 degrees. The sound of
air conditioners humming along can be heard on every residential street. This time of year
air conditioners seem to run all day and most of the night. But, with
all that run time, is your home getting cool – especially the rooms
upstairs? Maybe not.
Homes in hot climates like Texas are designed to maintain an inside temperature
which is up to 25 degrees cooler than the outside temperature. At 95 degrees
outside your air conditioner may be able to maintain your home at a cool
70 degrees. But, what happens when the outside temperature hits 105? You
guessed it, your living room may not cool below 80 degrees under these
conditions. And, 80 degrees can feel like a sauna if you are used to cooler
Things get even worse if your two-story home has a single AC system cooling
both upstairs and downstairs. Since heat rises, the upstairs rooms will
almost always be uncomfortable during the hot summer temperatures.
The good news is that almost every
heating and air conditioning problem has a solution and the experts at Tom's Mechanical are ready to help.
