research regarding which is more economical in running the air condi tioner My husband and I are hav ing a dispute over whether its cheaper to run the air conditioner 24 hours a day turning the thermo stat up when were not home so it wont come on as much or turning it on for nine hours a day then turning it off for 15 hours out of each day I say The air conditioner has to work much harder to cool the house every day after the hot air has been allowed to filter back in and heats up the furniture carpets drapes I called our power company but they were not much help Does the power company in your area have any information MISS CONCERNED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR MISS CONCERNED The only way to resolve your dispute is to have your home checked out by someone who knows the heating and aircon ditioning business Much will depend on a the amount of heat that is trans ferred to or from the outside b the outside temperature c whether the attic and outside walls are insulated and d whether the attic has a powered fan to remove hot air etc According to my aircondi tioning expert the very best way to operate airconditioning equipment is to set it at the desired temperature and leave it there This is the most conve nient method but also the most expensive The next best method is to turn on the cooling or heating about an hour before arriving home This can be done with a Fora better tomorrow
