Before bothering support I thought I’d ask what the experiences others have had with their AC systems.
We’re finally starting to have warm days where both our 1st floor and 2nd floor AC systems are running. Each system has its own condenser and its own air handler.
Regardless of heating/cooling season the air handlers run for 5 minutes per hour to circulate air in the house. When only the air handlers are running to circulate air Sense seems to do a good job of knowing which one is on or off.
However, when the condensers are also running a couple things take place.
- Sense often says the wrong condenser is running.
- The air handlers remain in an “off” state even though they’re running.
The systems are essentially the same other than their nominal capacity ratings. Model # differences highlighted below.
