Is Two-Stage Cooling Right for You?

Two-Stage CoolingYou may be considering air conditioner replacement and you’re looking at all of your options. One of those choices will be a two-stage cooling unit. If you haven’t run across this type of cooling system before, here’s some information that will show you what it is and will also help you decide if it’s the right kind of system for your needs. No matter what your final choice may be, the experts with Metro Express Service can install it efficiently so that you can start enjoying the benefits as quickly as possible.

So What is it, Exactly?

Two-stage cooling simply means an air conditioner has a compressor that operates at two levels; low for mild days and high for hot days. The vast majority of the time, the low setting will be sufficient to meet your cooling needs. As a result, this type of system can run for a longer amount of time and produce more even temperatures throughout your home.

These systems operate quietly and more efficiently than most other models. They also provide superior humidity control. Conventional single-stage units typically remove half as much moisture from indoor air than two-stage models, which is important because the less humidity in your indoor air, the less of a chance that pollutants such as mold can accumulate.
