Uneven Cooling Is a Warning You May Need a New Air Conditioner

photo 3

As the heat increases during the summer and you run your air conditioning system more and more often, you might begin to notice parts of your house are warmer than you expect. Some rooms are comfortable, but others are turning into hot spots. If this is a new occurrence, it’s often a warning sign you have an air conditioner that needs serious repair work—or may need to be replaced.

A Proper AC Installation Should Provide Even Cooling

One of the most important tasks that an HVAC professional faces when installing an air conditioner for a house is ensuring the new cooling system can distribute its conditioned air evenly throughout the rooms. This is tricky, because homes gain heat unevenly—certain rooms have more sun exposure, and upstairs areas are naturally warmer because of rising heat. A correctly sized and installed air conditioner with an effective ductwork system is supposed to overcome this so a home doesn’t suffer from extreme hot spots. In fact, one of the ways you can tell you received an inferior installation is if hot spots are just a natural part of the summer no matter how frequently you run the AC.

When Good ACs Go Bad

If you had a professional and skilled air conditioning installation in the first place, then you probably have rarely encountered bad hot spots in your house. Older homes are more likely to run into hot spots because they don’t have as strong a heat seal against the outside; but this is the reason to hire older home specialists like us to find the right cooling system to meet these challenges.

When you do start to discover hot spots in your house, the first step is to call for technicians to see if a malfunction is causing the problem. Sometimes the trouble can be fixed. But if you have an air conditioner that is more than 12 years old, a decline in even cooling often means the AC is losing its capacity to age. When you call on our team to look into the dropping cooling performance, we can give you an honest opinion about whether continuing with repairs is cost effective, or if the better route is to have a new air conditioner installed.
