Are all three 15 units? Our third 15 unit is tied to the clothes dryer and we can't run the dryer and middle AC. We can't run 2 ACs with the dryer.

We can run all 3 15 units unless we want to use the microwave then we have to turn the middle one (one we had installed) off but we can run 2 and the microwave.

Lastly, with the quick cool vent open, we find the bedroom unit has extra capacity, so we run a small 14 inch fan at the top of the stairs, which sends cold air to the kitchen ceiling fan, which is then push throughout the lower cabin.

We used a spray paint made for rubber to turn the bathroom skylight gloss white. That had an immediate impact on the heat in the bathroom. We then cut a piece of Reflectix and tucked it into the from of the skylight, which completely eliminated heat from coming in. The skylight inside so the creates a 1 to 2 inch gap between the Reflectix and skylight. When you do that, the Reflectix actually become an insulation with a pretty impressive R factor.

If you really want to get it right, try using the Reflectix to insulate the interior walls of the closet. We used strips of the Reflectix to create a gap and now can leave the closet doors open...huge drop in incoming heat.

LGray,

I'm late responding, my apologies.

Thanks very much for the advice and suggestions. No more "lo cool"! Gonna install the reflectix as soon as this demanding week ends!

Again, Much Appreciated!


God Bless,

I have noticed most newer high-end units are installing a third air conditioner.



I also endorse the comment about running them on low... it is a waste of time. They short cycle, freeze up easier and cause more heat.

Hello John,

Thanks for you help. We are running on Hi, and keeping up now! I contacted Matt at Dynamax to schedule warranty work. Gonna check out the 3rd unit option with them.

Many Thanks!
