A/C Sensor Bad

A/C guy was here yesterday. He checked everything and finally told us “it’s this sensing module that is bad”

The basic long and short of it is, I don’t really know why we need it, guess it’s a fine tuner, making everything work well no matter what temps you put in or something. He said that MOST systems will run OK without it but don’t go lower than 68 or 67 or 66 on your thermostat settings without the module installed.

Bottom line: Our house cooled down and the humidity level slowly went down. Upstairs kept constant temp. Downstairs in livingroom constant temp. Basement, in my office, constant temp (still an issue with the other side of the basement.)

The humidity level is still an issue, but not quite as bad as it had become (nothing worse than cold wet air inside the house! well, yes there is: HOT WET AIR!) Right now it’s 49% H. in the living room (only place I have a sensor for such a task) but the A/C isn’t running a lot since it’s nighttime and there no heating issue from outside. Seems reasonable. Also I am guessing our missing module would help, I hope. I truly do hope.

The part is on order, maybe it’ll arrive tomorrow, was the idea given. For now, things are cooler in a more stable way, thus far.

Nothing looks frozen with the equipment that is outside. I noticed the air coming on during the night (sometimes I wake up at night for awhile.) It’s great that this is being solved finally. Was the sensor bad all along? Back first night it was installed, it was hot in the house and it was “finished and on” for hours and hours and hours before it got cool enough not to sweat at every move or while sitting still. I wasn’t impressed with it the next day either. So not impressed as days went on. How does that sound now? Sounds like the only thing that is the problem right now is the module. Once that’s replaces, must tackle the “does it work NOW” possible problem. If it answers more questions than it makes, awesome!

Trane makes a wonderful new thermostat, it’s so very awesome. I’d love that sort (man though, 3 of them? Ouch!) There are other possible things I’d like added on to the system, but it’s so hard to make it do-able. To make others see why it would be right to add it to The ‘have to move this to the top of the list’ List.

So regarding temperatures, right now it’s a wonderful 57 degrees F. outside, with 70+% humidity. Feels wonderful! Forecast has our area going to 79 degrees F. today. That’ll be a nice little test, especially seeing as it’ll be MOSTLY SUNNY! [it’s been sooooo cloudly of late]
