Re: Electrical Question

What amazes me is that home owners forget about the simple things like making sure their refrigerator condenser coils are clean which, the homes A/C return air filter is clean and the A/C unit condenser coil is not obstructed with plants and the coil fins are clean....
ALL of this can reduce you electrical bill substantially depending upon how dirty they are....

Re: Electrical Question

Yes they do put warm water into the cold water lines ONLY until the hot water circuit is up to temp and then the thermostatic manifold closes.
The amount of warm water in the cold water circuit is minimal...
When I turn the cold water on in the bathroom sink the amount of warm water in the cold water is gone with in a few seconds....

Re: Electrical Question

Did they reduce your monthly rates, or do they just shut your AC off
during the hottest part of the day? I went to a computer controller
and bring the house down to freezing during the night, it shuts off and
doesn't come back on until around 3-4pm when the kids get home. I
figure the cat can suffer. :) I like having control of my AC, if you
let your AC run when your not there, then you're going to have a higher
bill. Kevin's problem is that he lets Luke run the place when he's not
home. :)

Re: Electrical Question

Checked with our guys here. The 0.44 pf gives the motor the same
starting current as running current. So, there is no inrush on
startup. Also, SCE doesn't have pf penalty for residential.
