What Makes It Difficult to Cool Your Home?

There may be instances when your air conditioning system is running as usual but your home still feels warm and uncomfortable. Dealing with this issue is fairly simple, but you’ll need to determine the exact cause of the problem in order to arrive at the appropriate solution. In this post, Anthony’s Cooling-Heating-Electrical shares some of the things that can make your home difficult to cool.

Solar Heat Gain From Windows

When sunlight streams into your home through the windows, it can make your rooms feel warm even when the AC is running. Older homes are especially prone to unwanted heat gain because their outdated windows offer poor insulating performance. Keeping your home cool and comfortable and preventing heat gain is as easy as drawing the curtains or blinds closed during the hottest part of the day.

Leaky Ductwork

Tears and punctures in the duct system allow conditioned air to escape to unoccupied areas of your home, like the ceiling and roof or behind the walls. These leaks hamper the way your AC distributes conditioned air throughout your home, so you’ll want to have your ductwork checked by a trusted HVAC contractor like Anthony’s Cooling-Heating-Electrical. We’ll have our trained, experienced technicians perform a comprehensive inspection of your duct system and patch any leaks they discover. This way, your cooling system can continue delivering the superior performance you’ve come to expect.

An Insufficient Level of Refrigerant 

Refrigerant refers to a chemical blend that allows your AC to do its job of cooling your home properly and efficiently. The loss of refrigerant can have dire consequences to the system when overlooked. Symptoms include frozen evaporator coils, hissing sounds from the indoor AC unit and poor cooling performance. Have Anthony’s Cooling-Heating-Electrical, the local HVAC expert, inspect your air conditioner. Depending on the results, we’ll either repair the system and charge it with the requisite amount of refrigerant or recommend a complete replacement.
