As electricity prices increase, maintenance of your central air conditioning system becomes more important. Spring maintenance ensures that your air conditioning system will run efficiently, safely, and reliably when you most need it. Residential air conditioning systems sit unused over long Calgary winters, and this can affect how they perform in the spring and summer. (Electrical problems, refrigerant leaks, debris in the condenser and the evaporator can reduce effectiveness or completely shut-down the system.) Avoid unexpected and costly repairs on the hottest day of the year by having your air conditioning system serviced ahead of time.

BIGGER IS NOT BETTER (Used with permission from Dominion® Energy Solutions)
The choice of a heating and cooling system that closely matches the home's load conditions is paramount to ensuring proper performance and comfort. A properly sized system should operate for longer periods as the outdoor temperature approaches the design temperature. At the design temperature, the system should run at or near 100% of the time while maintaining the designed indoor temperature. On rare occasions when outdoor design temperatures are exceeded, indoor design temperatures may not be maintained. This condition should only be temporary and does not warrant increased sizing because of the potential for short cycling, premature failure and higher than intended operating costs.
Short cycling is the phenomenon of meeting the thermostat's setting too quickly to properly alter, mix or dehumidify indoor air. The typical air conditioning system must run 8 - 10 minutes before the dehumidification process begins. When the system is oversized, the dehumidification process is almost eliminated until outdoor temperatures are high enough to create long run times. Premature equipment failure, increased repair costs and high operating costs can also be expected due to the increased stress and decreased efficiency of a starting and stopping motor, much like a car used for city driving versus highway driving.
