Air Conditioning Repair FAQ: Are My Ducts the Problem?

Monday, July 1st, 2013

If you are not able to efficiently and effectively cool your home, you are going to have a lot uncomfortable days throughout the Savannah summer. That is why it is so important that you schedule any necessary air conditioning repair services as soon as possible. The longer you wait to do so, the more likely it becomes that your air conditioner will suffer serious problems. Contact AAction Air at the first sign of trouble with your air conditioning system. There are a lot of different reasons that your AC may fail to keep you comfortable. Damaged or poorly designed air ducts may be to blame.

If you use a forced air distribution system in order to circulate cooled air throughout your home, it is very possible that the condition of the ductwork used to do so can have a negative impact on the efficiency with which your system operates. Because so much of your ductwork is hidden from view, it can be difficult to determine if it is in fact the problem. One common indicator that your ductwork is responsible for a problem with your AC is uneven cooling throughout your home. If your air ducts are poorly designed or leaking air, it is possible that cooled air will not be distributed throughout your home evenly. This means that some areas of your home will likely not be as comfortable as others.

A drop in efficiency is another common indicator that there is a problem with your air conditioning system. If you notice that your cooling costs are on the rise despite the fact that you’ve made no changes to your home cooling habits, contact us right away. This inefficiency may be the result of air leaks throughout your ductwork system.

To learn more about the function of the ductwork in your home, give AAction Air a call. We are happy to provide you with the information and services you need to live more comfortably.

Air Ducts and Air Conditioning

Monday, June 10th, 2013

If you have a forced air distribution system such as central air conditioning, heat pump, or geothermal system, then you have an extensive network of air ducts installed within your home that extract warm air and distribute cool air. While they are often overlooked, your air ducts are critical to the effectiveness and energy efficiency of your air conditioning system as a whole. In this post, we’d like to review the relation between your air ducts and air conditioning so that you can better understand how your cooling system works. For comprehensive air conditioning services in Savannah, call the experts at AAction Air today!

  • Zone control: You may want to upgrade your forced air distribution system with zone control. This cost-effective upgrade involves installing electronically controlled dampers at strategic points in your ductwork so that each zone can then be individually controlled by its own thermostat. This is a great way to improve the energy efficiency of your home, as well as to give yourself the ability to customize the temperature of different areas of your home apart from one another.
  • Replacement: If you notice a spike in your energy costs from one month to the next, or hot spots developing a certain area of your home, you might have problems with your ducts. Duct leaks and cracks can cause serious efficiency and performance issues. Consider checking with your local professional about whether you need your ducts repaired or replaced.
  • Go ductless: Your ductwork can become a haven for dust, pollen, dander, and other debris. While it is difficult to notice whether these substances have invaded your ductwork because of their often hidden location, when conditioned air circulates through your home, it makes these substances airborne. A ductless split air conditioning system avoids this issue entirely and also offers high energy efficiency ratings, typically much higher than conventional systems.
