Advantages of Two-Stage Cooling

Advantages of Two-Stage CoolingIf you live in an older home, you most likely have an air conditioner that isn’t as efficient or effective as you might like. With a two-stage cooling system, you’ll be able to save money on your energy bill while remaining cool throughout the hottest summer days. Customers in towns like Bloomfield and Grosse Pointe are already enjoying the benefits this technology offers. 

How It Works

Standard air conditioners are good at one thing: blasting as much cold air into your home as possible. The problem with this system comes when you don’t need as much cooling power as your system is producing, wasting a lot of energy. A two-stage cooling unit has a compressor with both high and low settings. This allows the air conditioner to produce a little or a lot of cold air depending on your current needs.

Due to Southeast Michigan’s mild summers, the unit’s low setting is enough to keep your home or business cool on most days. This type of system also has a variable speed air handler which controls the flow of cool air into your home. This allows you to have more precise control over the temperature.

What Are the Benefits

While saving money on your electric bill might be the most attractive part about owning a two-stage cooling system, there are many more benefits to get excited about. If you’re like most people, high humidity can lead to a lot of discomfort. This system’s continuous operation at low speeds gives the coils a chance to burn off most water vapor in the air. Continual motion is also good for the longevity of parts in the air conditioner. Wear and tear will be less of an issue relative to standard systems.

Whether you’re responsible for residential, industrial, or commercial cooling needs, a two-stage system may be the superior option for your climate control needs.
