You’ve got questions and we’ve got answers! When it comes to your air conditioning system, we understand that not all of the terms, parts and pieces of equipment are common English. For that reason, we’re compiling a list of frequently asked questions. We hope it will help clear up some confusion! 4 Things You Didn't Know About Air Conditioning | Rusk Heating & Cooling

  1. Are humidity levels important indoors? Yes, yes they are. When humidity levels are too low, it can cause sinus and lung problems in addition to dry skin and bloody noses. Not to mention it can damage wood floors and furniture and can foster an environment where certain types of bacteria and viruses grow.
  2. What does OEM mean? When it comes to your equipment, you may have heard the term “OEM” being tossed around. It simply means original equipment manufacturer and it refers to products that are made specifically from the original manufacturer. Non-OEM parts are often cheaper, but they do not always work best.
  3. What are the major signs of poor indoor air quality? For starters, be on the lookout for mold. Musty air and constant headaches and congestion are also key indicators.
  4. Why won’t my air conditioner turn on? In most cases, an air conditioner won’t turn on if the power source isn’t in the correct position. Check to make sure all switches on the condenser, air handler, thermostat and circuit breakers are turned “on”. Then, make sure your thermostat is set properly – it should be in “cool” mode.
