Title: Building America Case Study: Residential Mechanical Precooling, Roseville, California

Abstract

Precooling is an operational strategy with potentially no up-front cost that cools occupied spaces earlier in the day to minimize or avoid afternoon air conditioner operation. In its simplest form, precooling can be implemented by scheduling air conditioner operation to reduce thermostat setpoints between 2 degrees and 6 degrees F below typical comfort settings in advance of the on-peak time period.
