I got married and moved into my wife's older home...(good neighborhood)
I have two questions:
1. We set the thermostat at 78 and I think that if we run the fan all the time vs. auto, it will keep the cycle down on the AC unit and help feel cooler vs. have the AC cycle on and off? Does that make sense?
2. There is a sun room that has AC outlets in it, with a ceiling return.. I can shut off the AC out but not the return..So I think that it is better to leave it open and keep the temp down so the air return is cooler vs. closing them...Does this make sense?
Bottom line is I am trying to save money in the summer heat of North Texas.. The house is a 1965 build with floor and ceiling registers..all returns are at the ceiling. My wife only lived there a few months before we got married so she has no experience with the AC in the house.
