We’re officially into the summer months! That means that residents of the Pacific Northwest will be seeing some hot days in the next several weeks. And what’s more frustrating that turning on your air conditioning unit and not getting the kind of cooling relief that you expect? If your air conditioning isn’t keeping you cool enough, there may be something going wrong with it. Here are some potential reasons.
Reason #1: The outdoor unit is dirty.
Outdoor HVAC systems need to be cleaned regularly. If they don’t, debris and dirt will collect on the surface as well as the internal components and this could cause issues with efficiency. The coil will not be able to cool the refrigerant if there is excess dirt.
Reason #2: You need a new air filter.
Did you know that you need to change the air filter in your HVAC system every one or two months? If you aren’t changing it on a regular basis, the filter will have buildup of dirt, dander, and debris and this means the airflow could be slowed down. In addition, dirty air filters cause debris and dust to get into your home easily and if it collects for too long it can even cause damage to the overall machine.
Reason #3: Your unit is the wrong size.
Your HVAC unit will only be efficient if it’s the right size for your home. If you have a small unit, you can’t expect it to cool the entire house. We’ll be happy to take a look at your current system to see if it is the right size to keep you cool and comfortable everywhere. If not, we’re happy to provide some quotes for a new system that will fit your house size and most importantly, your budget.
