Potential Causes of Inefficient AC

In the hot and humid climate of Georgia, few parts of your home are more important than your air conditioning system. It works hard to provide cool air to make you comfortable. However, your AC may not be operating to the best of its ability. Maybe you’ve noticed that it isn’t getting you as cool as before, and the temperature around your house feels uneven. Or maybe you’ve gotten a shock when you looked at your electrical bill and saw a sudden rise in cost. Your air conditioning in Savannah needs to run as efficiently as possible to keep you cool and keep your bills down. If you think your AC is having trouble, call in the experts at AAction Air.

Some reasons that your air conditioner might become less efficient include:

Clogged air filter: The air filter traps dust and other particles to keep them out of the air you breathe and to protect the components inside the air conditioner. If the filter becomes too congested, it makes it harder for the air conditioner to draw in air. You should change the filter at least once a month during the height of the summer season, and every three to four months during periods when the air conditioner runs less frequently.

Dirty ducts: The ductwork distributes the cool air blown from the indoor fan through your home. These ducts can accumulate dust unless they are cared for properly. This will not only cause a drop in air quality, but it will also force your AC to work harder. Professional duct cleaning can solve this trouble for you.

Thermostat problems: The thermostat is how you communicate with your air conditioner. If you have an older thermostat, you won’t have as much control over how your AC works. A malfunctioning thermostat can cause more issues: if improperly calibrated, the thermostat will incorrectly sense the temperature and run or shut off your AC at the wrong times. We recommend replacing older thermostats with newer programmable models.

Regular preventive maintenance is the best way to keep your air conditioning system working at its best. Having a trained technician visit your home for an annual inspection will reward you with fewer repairs in the years ahead. A technician will run tests to see if your AC is getting proper air flow and if its electrical systems are operating correctly.
