It forces my air handler to run on longer cycles, just to reach the same hot and cold temperatures
I have been told that I do more loads of laundry than the average man. My friends and family members were all surprised when I nonchalantly disclosed that I occasionally do laundry bi-weekly. I usually do at least one load every other day. As a single guy with no guests or pets, I do more loads of laundry than I’m supposed to apparently. I prefer to clean my bedding every few afternoons, even though I shower every evening before climbing into bed. Also, I prefer to have a variety of clean clothing around because we’re in the midst of Summer, and I am regularly covered in sweat. This is where I run into concerns, though. Since it’s so humid and hot during the Summer months here, I’m forced to run my air conditioning all day. I could run my AC non stop, all day long and it still would not be enough to keep my home comfortably cool. If I’m doing a lot of laundry, then ‘m also running the clothes dryer too. Not only does the heat produced by the clothes dryer immediately affect the temperature inside my house, but it also makes my air conditioner work way harder because it’s on the opposite of a thin wall from my clothes dryer. It forces my air handler to run on longer cycles, just to reach the same hot and cold temperatures. It has me wondering how much this directly affects the long term durability of my air conditioning system, let alone the decrease in air quality.
