I've seen some heat waves on the east coast, but this one is becoming historical and for some deadly. I'm glad I don't service air conditioning anymore
Yesterday the heat index hit 108F(real temp of 100F), but didn't do so until 2pm
I can only imagine what it will be at 2pm today
Anyone else on the east coast with a weather station?
If you have AC
, double check that your filters are clean. A dirty filter can greatly reduce efficiency, and on a day like today can be the difference between maintaining and not maintaining temp.
A sprinkler to lightly mist the condenser outside will also help if you are having difficulties cooling the house. Too much water on it is not good as you can cause liquid refrigerant to enter compressor(not a good thing). Just a sprinkler that will moisten the cooling fins will help greatly
