Air Conditioning Tip of the Week:

Especially during extreme hot and humid conditions, it's best to run your furnace blower in the "ON" position on your thermostat rather than the "AUTO" position. This will help to keep the air "mixed" within all parts of the house, helping to eliminate hot and cold spots (it will also extract more "cooling" from the evaporator coil that is normally left when the indoor blower shuts off).
A great example of the effects of 'blower air', is to observe a bottle of vinegar and oil salad dressing. When the bottle has set for a period of time the ingredients separate, when you shake the bottle up the ingredients are mixed fairly evenly within the bottle - very similar to the air in your home!
