Summer may only be here for a few more weeks, but we certainly still have some warmer weather to contend with. As a result, we continue to run our air conditioners on a regular basis so that we can maintain a cool home. Hopefully your cooling system has been working for you and hasn’t run into any big problems this season.
However, have you noticed that certain rooms in your home are warmer than others? This is usually a sign that something is amiss with your air conditioner or ventilation system. It is first important to ensure that the trouble isn’t from the rooms themselves—such as windows that aren’t properly sealed. If that’s not the problem, then it may be one of the following factors.
Your Air Conditioner Is Aging
Is your cooling system over 15 years of age? If so, it could very well be losing its cooling ability due to natural wear and tear. If you’ve found that you’re having repairs done more often than once a year and you have an older system, then an upgrade may be the answer.
Your Air Filter Is Clogged
The air filter supplied with your HVAC system upon installation is designed to protect that system from dirt and debris that can affect its functionality. When it becomes too clogged, airflow is restricted and you may notice hot spots throughout your home as a result. Be sure to change your air filter at least every 3 months or more.
You Have an Air Duct Breach
If any holes or gaps start to develop within your ductwork, up to 30% of the air inside of it can escape. This doesn’t allow the cool air to reach the inside of your living space, and therefore creates hot spots throughout.
