Testing an high velocity air conditioning with digi thermo
High velocity air conditioners (AC) work exactly the same way as a central air conditioner. Because the ducts used in a high-velocity system are so small, they won't require a lot of remodeling to accommodate them and they won't take up a lot of extra space in the home.
According to the website energy.gov,
"In an average air-conditioned home, air conditioning consumes more than 2,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, causing power plants to emit about 3,500 pounds of carbon dioxide and 31 pounds of sulfur dioxide."
Having the most energy-efficient system ever built won't matter much if it's not maintained. Lack of maintenance is the number one killer of air conditioning systems and it can result in:
Poor air conditioning efficiency that affects indoor comfort
Refrigerant leaks which can create serious environmental issues and increase global warming
Increase energy bill and carbon footprint
Keeping your air conditioning working efficiently can have a huge impact not just on your wallet but also on the environment.
Checking-up air conditioner performance using digi thermo’s smart sensor allows you to prevent failures and be notified you when your AC needs servicing.
Common Air Conditioner Problems
Refrigerant Leaks: Low levels indicate a leak that needs to be found and repaired immediately. Low refrigerant levels can burn out your compressor, resulting in the most costly repair when it comes to AC.
Inadequate Maintenance: If you allow filters and air conditioning coils to become dirty, the air conditioner will not work properly, and the compressor or fans are likely to fail prematurely.
Electric Control Failure: Tighten all electrical connections and measure voltage and current on motors. Faulty electrical connections can cause unsafe operation of your system and reduce the life of major components.
Sensor Problems: Air conditioners feature a thermostat sensor which regulates the amount of cool air that is distributed. Calibrate your thermostats to make sure the AC isn’t working overtime and increasing your energy bill.
