Just was wonder what you guys think of the A/C power saver switch?
It came with the house, and never dealt with this in the past.. We got the house last fall, so I never had a chance to see how well it works.
The last week been fairly warm, and the last 2 days been pretty humid.. so the power company was cycyling this alot. The humidity stayed in the 50% range when it was cycle on the switch..
Today for kicks I bypassed the switch all day.. The house came down to about 38 to 41% humdity.
It was 90 out w/ dew point of 72, it really felt cold in here at 76, bumped it up to 78..
I think I may call the power company to have them take the switch off the house.
I don't htink it's worth them paying me $3 a month for this, and not get my comfort. I also think it's harder on the compressor to cycle on and off that often.. I haven't really timed it.. It seems like it runs for 15 min, off for 10, and again.... from about 10 am to 10 pm.
I also wonder how much I am really saving other than $3 a month they give me???
