I can’t let it simmer. I mean on some days I use almost 30 kW hours extra just to cool my home! And I only live in Indiana. Think of the people that live further south and want to keep their house cool.

My AC unit is almost ten years old. I think I can make a great case to replace it before it breaks down. Knock on wood, we have had no problems with it at all! It’s just very inefficient. Currently, I am thinking about an inverter unit. This brand also has a zone feature. Since I think the upstairs needs far more AC then the entire house it may save me money just because of the zone feature.

Next step is to get some quotes.
