Most homeowners in the Vegas Valley have experienced uneven temperatures in their home, where the living room feels cool and comfortable and as they move into their bedroom it feels warm and stuffy. Inconsistent temperatures are definitely a red flag something is not right with the air conditioner or the cooling system. Though there are many things that can be the source of the problem, there are a few things that are generally more commonly the culprit. Today, we at Air Supply Air Conditioning & Heating would like to take the opportunity to share the common issues that result in uneven temperatures inside your Las Vegas home.
Clogged Air Filters
Clogged air filters impact the overall efficiency of the HVAC system in a number of ways, one of which is the air circulation. To avoid the poor circulation HVAC experts recommended replacing your air filters every month to maintain comfort and efficiency. Replacing the air filters cannot be advocated enough as it is the simplest maintenance step homeowners can do that makes a significant difference.
Closed Off Registers: Vents and supply registers can be easily closed off in a few ways from furniture or clutter blocking their venting path, closed off fins, or even layers of compacted dirt and grime. To help ensure the airways are circulating, be sure to periodically inspect the vents and supply registers and clear away furniture, clutter, and dust and debris from off the surface. Cool air can easily circulate, making for even temperature throughout your home.
Blocked Return Air Vents
The registers that you see around your home at the tops of your walls are the return vents. Just like every other surface, they collect dirt, dust, allergens and pollutants. It is encouraged that homeowners use a vacuum’s hose to cleanup the dirty intake vents in order to open pathways of air into your home and reduce the pollutants and allergens that make their way inside.
Inefficient Ductwork or Poor Design
Air ducts are strategically designed to disperse and deliver the cooled air into the individual areas of the house. If the air ducts are inefficiently designed, leaking, damaged, or blocked from accumulated dirt and debris, they obstruct proper air flow and prevent the cooled air from reaching the specified areas of the home. Not only is the comfort of your house affected, but you are wasting money and energy by neglecting inefficient ducts in your cooling systems performance. A professional HAVC system service provider can evaluate the air ducts and discover any needed repairs or replacements that provides optimal solutions.
Improper AC Unit Size
Despite a common misconception, air conditioning units are not a one size fits all appliance. If the unit is too small or too big, you will notice a lot of discomfort. Too small of a unit cannot adequately keep the home cool. Whereas larger units lead to excessive operating costs and higher energy use and monthly bills.
