Traditional A/C units operate only when the temperature rises above a preset level, whatever you set the thermostat to.

However, the actual efficiency will vary with the installation and components used, and some other central air systems are even more efficient.

This Trane model uses a modulating compressor, which runs at low capacity the majority of the time, stepping up in one percent increments as cooling demands increase. The result is improved efficiency and improved comfort as this technology keeps temperatures more stable and does a better job of reducing humidity than other air conditioning systems.
