An outdoor switch is a device that is connected near your exterior air conditioning unit. It receives a signal over your broadband connection to cycle your air conditioning compressor (not the whole A/C system), to run half the time it did during the hour prior to the conservation period. The indoor fan will continue to circulate air throughout your facility even though the compressor has reduced operating time.
The outdoor switch will be installed near your outside air conditioning unit, so it is not necessary for you to be available at that time as long as the technician can get to the unit without interference from such obstacles as a locked fence or a dog. Just be sure your outdoor air conditioning unit and electrical safety box are accessible to our technicians.
