Keeping your home cool in the summer is always important. However, many issues can lead to uneven cooling in a building. This can create an uncomfortable situation as you move from room to room. Uneven cooling can also cause increased energy bills because of inefficiencies in the system.
Causes of Uneven Cooling
The two main causes of uneven cooling are inefficient air circulation and a poorly functioning HVAC system. Air circulation can be impeded by a wide variety of issues, ranging from dirty air filters to blocked vents. Ductwork with holes can cause air leaks that will result in cool air not reaching certain areas in your home.
Fixing the Problem
Whether you have a single room or a whole area in your home that isn’t cooling properly, there are several steps to take to resolve the problem. To increase air circulation, keep the fan of your HVAC system running even if the air conditioner isn’t on. This will cause air to continue moving through your home even when it’s not being actively cooled.
To make sure that cool air can enter a room, take a look at all of the vents and make sure they aren’t being blocked by a piece of furniture or other obstruction. It’s also important to make sure that vents are all the way open in order to maximize airflow into a room.
Hiring a professional from McGowan’s Heating & Air Conditioning can help you determine the state of your duct system. A professional who understands HVAC systems can also help you determine if your air conditioner is the right size. If you have a large home, you may need to get a bigger HVAC system.
