Two stage air conditioners have gained significant popularity in recent years, and rightfully so. Once a property owner experiences the benefits of two stages, it’s hard to go back. In many cases, our customers tell us that they feel comfortable during summers at higher indoor temperatures, and that they feel the benefits of reduced humidity every time they walk through the door. A two stage air conditioner can back off to operate at 60% of maximum, and this machine will typically run in low stage 90% of the time, at much lower energy usage levels (which can save lots of money). In practical applications, two stage machines produce even more dramatic results in energy management and comfort than any other feature.
