Air Conditioning3 Common Causes of Inefficient Cooling

As long as your AC is up and running reliably, you should be happy and comfortable in your home, enjoying cool, even temperatures throughout the house. If you start to sweat every time you see your utility bill show up in the mail during the cooling season, though, something is very wrong. Cooling your home is not going to come for free, of course, but it also shouldn’t be taking a shocking bite out of your budget. If you are sick and tired of the sticker shock that you suffer each time you open that envelope, consider the following information. Remember, we’re here to handle any air conditioning services in Everett, WA that you may need. 

Improper Sizing

Hopefully this is not the problem, as there really is no fix for an oversized air conditioner. To resolve the problem, you’d have to replace the system with one that is a better fit for your home. If your air conditioner is too small, it is going to run longer than it should have to as it struggles to cool a space beyond its capabilities. If the system is too large, it will short cycle, running in short bursts and wasting energy by starting up over and over.

Insufficient Insulation

This is obviously not a problem with your AC itself, but it can really spell trouble in terms of the energy efficiency with which you cool your home. Adding the right amount of insulation to the different areas of your home, as well as to your ductwork, where necessary, will help to prevent heat from making its way into these spaces. That takes a lot of strain off of the system itself.

Poor Maintenance

If you do not schedule routine air conditioning maintenance on a regular basis, then you have no one but yourself to blame when your system fails to operate efficiently. Simply put, there is just no better way in which to maintain great efficiency levels than with routine maintenance. Plus, it helps greatly in keeping repair needs at bay.
