Why were this Mississippi woman’s energy bills running $600 in the summer? She called the local co-op energy company to find out.

They sent someone to investigate. She explained to him that the air conditioner ran night and day, yet the house did not cool down. In fact, the house was extremely uncomfortable, never cooling to below 80 degrees.

After checking the attic for a possible disconnected duct and finding that intact, he turned off the electrical resistance heat(a.k.a. strip heat) in the HVAC system. This is where he found the problem: the heating and cooling system were running at the same time.
