As we dive head first into Spring and the temperatures start to creep into the 70’s and above, we get our first taste of the all too familiar humidity we’ve come to know in South Louisiana.
We’ve all been here before and everybody has their own unique way of dealing with it.
But what about you restaurant and business owners?
Do you find that it’s even harder to keep your customers cool and dry during the Spring and Summer months no matter how much you spend constantly blasting your A/C?
Depending on what kind of system you have, your A/C could actually be exacerbating the problem!
Here’s why your customers may be feeling hot and sticky and how to battle the humidity throughout the upcoming seasons.
Too Much of a Good Thing Can Be Bad
I think we can all agree that the invention of the Air Conditioner is proof that someone up there loves us and wants us to be happy.
However, too much of ANYTHING can be bad. Take your A/C system for example.
Like any machine it has limits and there are best practices you can follow to get the most out of your investment. But not every system is built the same.
Especially if your system is older or more conventional, it may be operating using less advanced technology than newer systems that use Variable Speed. That means you could be paying more for your system to work harder and achieve less.
Why Choose a Variable Speed System?
Variable Speed A/C Systems are designed specifically to combat and control humidity.
Conventional systems consist of a one speed outdoor and indoor machine and are capable of pulling some humidity out of your home or business while simultaneously cooling that space. However, that function stops as soon as the system reaches the desired temperature and shuts off.
Variable Speed A/C Systems consist of multiple speed machines, on the indoor and outdoor, that work as a team to pull humidity out and keep your space consistently cool and dry throughout the day.
While the outdoor unit adjusts its speed of cooling, the indoor unit also adjusts its speed to pull the moisture out of the air. It achieves this by a longer run time at a lower tonnage.
Due to this team effort neither machine is using as much energy (or at the same time) to do their jobs which means cost and energy savings for you!

Can a Variable Speed System Work with My Current System?
Depending on the system you have, YES!
Whether your current system is a gas run or electric air handler, we can match a new Variable System with your current A/C unit and you’ll be reaping the benefits in no time!
The short term benefits are impressive enough but what you may not have considered is that a Variable Speed A/C System is a long term investment and solution.
Not only will it help cut your business’s utility costs and be more energy efficient, but this system will actually allow your A/C unit to work smarter (not harder) and extend your system’s life!
Whether you want to use your tax refund to invest in your business or home, prepare for summer, or are looking to tackle the humidity before it gets truly unbearable, a Variable Speed System is a great way to go.
