My 2000 square-foot house has a typical heat pump central air conditioner.
But at night, I run two window fans to blow the night air through the house. This brings the temperature down from 78° to 74° in the morning.
Running two window fans all night presumably costs less than using the A/C to get down to 74 degrees.
Do you think this really saves energy?
I know I get some extra humidity in the house by doing this, and the air-conditioning will run more to dry that out. Any other factors or issues I’m not thinking of? Has this been discussed elsewhere?
(I guess tonight I could ditch the fans and instead use the A/C to get down to 74 degrees, and Sense could tell me how much the A/C used. Just thought of that.)
