The heat has subsided in Southern California after an intense heatwave. It’s still hot, but we’ve eased down to temperatures that require less work from air conditioning systems.
(Friendly reminder: Your AC can lower the temperature indoors by a maximum of 20°F. You never want to push it to lower the temperature farther than this. So if it’s 95°F, don’t set the thermostat lower than 75°F. In fact, aim for 78°F for best energy savings.)
Now that we’re moving toward cooler temperatures, it’s a good time to look at your AC and consider if it’s ready to retire. Planning an AC installation in Van Nuys, CA during October or November is an ideal time for the job.
But is your AC ready to go? You don’t want to replace it if it still has a few years of solid and efficient performance left.
