What Are the Best Signs of HVAC Efficiency in the Summer?

June 17, 2021

With the weather getting warmer, you’re no doubt looking forward to longer days and increased outdoor activity and relaxation. However, you want your home to remain cool and comfortable. If you haven’t used the AC in a while, you may not be aware of any problems until you need to run it and notice a reduction in AC efficiency. If you see any of the following signs, you should contact an HVAC professional for any maintenance needs.

Signs of Reduced AC Efficiency

  • Your AC Keeps Running. One of the most noticeable signs of reduced AC efficiency is that your AC never turns off. An inefficient system cannot effectively cool your home, and you may need repairs or a newer, stronger AC unit to keep your home comfortable.
  • Increased Energy Costs. Related to an AC that doesn't turn off is the associated energy cost. If your AC keeps running to cool your home without interruption, your energy bill will quickly increase. This can be due to the unit itself being too small to cool your home, loss of efficiency due to age, or your home having increased cooling needs due to renovation.
  • Fluctuations in Temperatures. If you notice different temperatures as you walk room to room, then you should have a professional check your AC system. Your home should have a consistent temperature, and hot and cold spots are a sign that maintenance is needed.
