Problems of any kind with your whole-house air conditioning system are troubling. However, an air conditioner that is up and running, but not performing well, is sometimes even more frustrating than an AC that is failing to do its job at all! The whole point of using a whole-house air conditioner is to cool your whole house, right! So, needless to say, an AC that is leaving hot spots throughout the house is not one that you can ever be satisfied with.
There are a number of different reasons as to why your air conditioner in Spring, TX may fail to cool your home evenly. Some of them are quite simple to fix, while others, well—we’ll get to it. Regardless of the cause of the problem or how serious it may be, you want to have it resolved as soon as possible. That is why we suggest working with the trained professionals on our team. We’ll diagnose the problem accurately and resolve it completely.
Has It Always Been a Problem?
This is the question that no homeowner really wants to hear a response to if their own answer is “yes”. If you have had issues with cooling your entire home evenly ever since you’ve been using the air conditioner that you have in place, then it is possible that your air conditioner is simply not of the right size for your home. That’s a big problem, because you cannot really just add power to your AC.
If your air conditioner truly is undersized, then you’ll have to replace it with one that is better suited to your home. This is not something that any homeowner wants to do, naturally, and only serves to further emphasize the importance of hiring a skilled, trained professional to handle your AC installation from the start.
Have You Had Your Air Ducts Tested?
Do you use a forced air, central AC system? If so, then you use air ducts in order to distribute conditioned air throughout your home. And that may be where the problem comes into play. If your air ducts are leaking, then you cannot really expect them to distribute conditioned air throughout your home evenly and effectively. That is why you may want to have your air ducts tested.
If you use those same ducts in conjunction with a furnace in the winter, and you have cold spots in that season as well, then we recommend having your air ducts professionally tested. It could just be coincidence, but it is much more likely that you have problems with your ducts that are negatively affecting these systems.
It Could Even Be Your Insulation
If your insulation in any area of your home is insufficient or degraded, due to age, pests, or even weather conditions, then it could be letting excess heat transfer into your home. Again, this will affect you in the heating season, too, as insulation is there to keep heat in in the winter, as well. Fortifying, adding, or replacing your insulation in those areas may do the trick.
