It forces the air handler to run on much longer cycles to reach the same temperature
I’ve been told that I do more laundry loads than the average lady. My friends were all shocked when I nonchalantly told them that I do at least one load of laundry daily. Sometimes, a single load every other day. As a single woman with no pets or many guests, I do more laundry than I’m supposed to apparently. I appreciate having fresh and clean bedding every night, even though I shower before climbing into bed each night. Also, I appreciate having a lot of clean clothing available, because it’s the middle of summer and I am constantly dripping in sweat. Although, that’s where I run into problems. Since it’s so sizzling hot here during the summer time here, I’m forced to run our air conditioning daily. I could run it all day everyday, and it still wouldn’t be enough to keep my home cool enough. If I’m doing some laundry, that means I’m also running my dryer with it. Not only does the excessive heat produced by my dryer instantly affect the temperature inside my house, but it also makes the air conditioning system work harder because it’s on the opposite of a thin wall from my clothes dryer. It forces the air handler to run on much longer cycles to reach the same temperature. It has me wondering how much this directly affects the long term durability of my air conditioning system, let alone the decrease in indoor air conditions.
