What Is Two-Stage Cooling?
Thursday, June 02, 2016

Do you know how your heating and air conditioning works? How about two-stage cooling? If you have an air conditioner or heat pump, you might have two-stage cooling. Keep reading to learn how it works.

What Is Two-Stage Cooling?

Two-stage cooling is common with air conditioners and heat pumps in locations where the climate is mild but summers can get hot. It works by having a compressor with two different levels of operation.

When the weather is warm and mild, it can operate on low. This is how it can function 80% of the time to keep your home cool and comfortable. When the weather gets really hot in the dog days of summer, the system can shift to high to keep up with demand when you need more cooling to stay happy inside.

What Are the Benefits of Two-Stage Cooling?

Two-stage cooling systems function with longer cooling cycles. This makes for more even cooling and greater temperature control. Another huge benefit is that they can remove significantly more moisture from the air than single-stage cooling systems.

Moisture levels that are kept in check will help prevent mold and mildew from forming in your house during those hot, humid days. Because they run at different speeds to more effectively control temperature and humidity, they’re also more energy efficient, so you’ll save money in the long run on your utility bills too.

Do you want your house cool and comfortable this summer? A two-stage cooling system could be just what the doctor ordered. For all the information you need on heating and air conditioning, contact the team at All City Heat and Air today.

Repair technician inspected newly installed thermostat, found installation error, and repaired. He then inspected the air handler and outside compressor. Discovered freon was leaking, topped off freon to hold me over, and made recommendations for future repairs and upgrades.

Response time was great - next day service, on a Saturday. Service fee was very reasonable, and the technician was polite, professional, and informative.
