Does your air conditioning system take too long to cool down your house? If so, you’re not alone.
This is an issue that many homeowners experience, and several factors can affect it. Understanding what they are is the first step toward addressing the problem.
If you’ve encountered such problems, you can call a company that specializes in heating, cooling and even local plumbing services in your area to help you get a better idea of what you’re dealing with, starting with these factors:
Lack of Insulation
Sometimes heating problems can blamed on the amount of insulation in your house. A home that’s not properly insulated can waste a lot of energy, as heat can easily seep through the walls, floor and ceiling, making it hard for your cooling system to achieve the desired temperatures.
Sources of Heat
Look around the house. Is there any sort of machine or equipment that releases a significant amount of heat? Even in small amounts, this additional heat can have an accumulated effect on your AC’s cooling load.
Holes in the Wall
Air leaks through holes in the wall will let in warm air, resulting in higher electric bills and decreased cooling function. Hiring an inspector specializing in cooling, heating and plumbing service can help you more thoroughly check your home for problem spots.
Sunlight is the primary enemy of your air conditioning system, so keeping the light out will drastically aid in cooling down your house. To keep passive heating at bay, you can start by using window treatments or investing in heat-blocking glass packages.
