­If you've never owned a two-story home before, you may have always wondered why a lot of older two-story houses have two units. Here are some of the common reasons why they're an increasingly popular fixture.
The second story is warmer than the ground floor.
Two units give the homeowner more control. No matter how your house is built, odds are that the second story stays warmers than the first floor. Part of this is because hot air rises.

Freon is a refrigerant. The material absorbs the heat your air conditioner produces. Then the refrigerant line leads the heated refrigerant to the outside air, where the heat can dissipate.

Without freon, your air conditioning system can't regulate its temperature, and no freon at all would overheat your system.

Low levels of refrigerant can make your coils turn frosty because the refrigerant line's internal pressure is fluctuating.

Now that hot weather has arrived, you're probably using your air conditioner more often. Should you be concerned if your air conditioning unit is constantly running? If your home stays comfortable and your energy bills are about the same as usual, you probably don't need to worry. But if your air conditioner never stops running and the thermostat temperature is never reached, you might have a problem with your unit.

Air conditioning is practically a requirement in every home in the United States. If you own rental properties, this maxim is even more strict. If you don't provide adequate HVAC systems for the neighborhood and the clime, you won't be able to compete with the market. This means you'll have a lot of tenant turnover. If you live in a hot or cold area, it's also bad for the property itself.
