Many of us are fortunate enough to have a central air conditioning system in our home to ensure we are always comfortable, no matter how hot it gets outside this summer. When you have the ability to stay comfortable, it can be frustrating when you have some rooms that aren’t as cool as you would like them to be. Hal Mechanical is here to talk about what can be causing those hot and cold spots in your home to help you avoid them.
Why Should I Not Cover My Air Vent?
Sometimes, people don’t realize that there is a large piece of furniture blocking the vent in the room. Even when you have multiple vents in one room, when one of them is covered it can affect the overall comfort of the space. Sometimes, a vent gets closed without you knowing it as well and it’s only a matter of opening the vent to get the cool air that you’re looking for. Your vents are one of the first places you should look when uneven cooling is taking place.
Change Your Air Filter
Another area that can cause problems but is easy to fix is a dirty air filter. Many people don’t realize that you should be changing or cleaning your filter once a month to make sure your AC system is getting the airflow that it needs. When you have a dirty filter, it can affect the overall cooling of your home and some people experience uneven cooling.
How Do I Know if My AC Unit is the Right Size for My House?
It is extremely important that you have the right sized AC unit for your home. A unit that is too large is going to give you short cycling problems that can be not only expensive but will give you hot and cold spots in your home as well. If your unit is too small, you could be dealing with a home that doesn’t ever feel comfortable because it simply can’t keep up with the demands of your home. Uneven cooling is a common result when your AC unit isn’t the right size for your house.
Check for Missing Insulation
Sometimes, if you have a room that doesn’t have enough insulation in it’s walls, it can create a space that is hard to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Insulation plays a large role in the efficiency of your home. You can have your insulation checked when you have hot and cold spots in your home.
