“Not running your A/C will keep it in better shape for the long run.”

I can understand the logic behind this one but yet again it’s not true! Air conditioning is meant to be used that is why someone built it rather than just dreamed about how nice it would be. There are moving parts, gases and oils within the system, they need to be worked out every now and then lest they seize or congeal (horrible word). Even if it is just for a few minutes to get everything moving again it is a good idea to just spin up the unit, like you would a car that you don’t use that often. This also has the benefit of letting you know if the unit isn’t working before you really need it, there’s nothing worse than waiting until the height of summer before turning your air conditioning unit on only to discover it isn’t working as it should be.
