Question about Timex Hardware & Accessories
Alan there is a few problems with what you want to do. First off you should never run an A/C on an extension cord. Secondly the A/C will draw more at startup than after it gets going. You may be fine with this 15 amp timer but make sure that the A/C does not require more than 1875 watts at startup. If you must use an extension cord then buy one that is just long enough to reach and purchase at least a 12 gauge one. 10 gauge would even be better. I would recommend you leave the A/C on all the time and just set the thermostat to a temperature of say 78 degrees. By turning it off entirely it will work very hard at startup to cool not only the air but the furniture walls and everything else in the area it is located in down to a comfortable temperature. I personally would forget the timer and just use the A/C thermostat. Of course if you want the home comfortable when you arrive and do not want it running at all when you are not there then a timer is the answer. I just do not think you will save much money in that manner as the A/C will have to work so hard to cool everything down and will run continuously for hours. You could check it both ways and see which was the most cost effective.
