Understand the Link Between Indoor Cooling Ability and Outside

cooling ability

The cooling ability of your central air conditioner is directly related to the outdoor temperature. An air conditioner is basically a heat mover. Heat energy naturally flows from a hotter zone into a cooler zone — i.e., the interior of your home. As outdoor heat infiltrates the house, the air conditioner extracts that heat and disperses it outdoors. As long as the cooling ability of your AC stays ahead of the rate of heat gain, your house stays comfortably cool.

However, the heat-moving capacity of an air conditioner is limited. A standard central AC can only move enough heat to maintain indoor temperatures around 20 degrees below the outdoor temperature. Heat competes with your air conditioner’s cooling ability in several ways:

Preventative measures include scheduling annual professional maintenance on AC components, as well as staying current with routine upkeep like replacing the system air filter at intervals recommended by a qualified HVAC professional. Reducing the rate of heat gain is also important. Suggestions to keep outdoor heat outdoors include:
