Two-Stage Cooling Offers Unparalleled Savings For Homeowners In Massachusetts

Two-stage cooling is a relatively new air conditioning technology that you should consider if you're replacing your current equipment.

If you're looking to cut your home cooling costs, reduce your overall energy consumption this summer, and achieve a high level of home comfort, two-stage air conditioners are an option you can't afford to overlook.

Here's how two-stage cooling systems work: The air conditioner's compressor runs on two different speeds or "stages" -- low and high. When the weather outside demands more cooling, the air conditioner will run on the lower speed, conserving energy without compromising your indoor comfort. However, on hotter days, the compressor automatically kicks into the higher speed, providing faster and more powerful cooling. Most two-stage air conditioners are built to automatically sense the cooling load and select the low or high speed accordingly.

Further, two-stage compressors help to boost comfort and increase quality of life. For instance, because the compressor operates most often at the lower speed, 80 percent of the time according to manufacturers -- a speed adequate to effectively cool your home -- you'll experience even temperatures throughout your home, in part because of the longer run times the lower speed uses as it cools the air.

The benefits of two-stage cooling systems extend even further, though; because the low speed provides adequate cooling the majority of the time, you will save a great deal of wear and tear on the system's working parts, including the motor and fan. This can significantly reduce maintenance and repair costs over the life of the system, potentially saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in operating costs.
