When you look to your AC system for reprieve from high temps outside, it can be frustrating when your unit isn’t working as you think it should. If you are not getting a cool house like you are expecting when you hear your AC kick on, there are several issues that you could be dealing with. One of them could an undersized AC system in your home. There are a few signs that you may notice when you have an undersized unit, and Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about them.
Why is My AC Running Constantly
As your AC works to cool your home, it should be coming on and staying on all day long. You should be noticing it kick on and off throughout the day. When you hear your system on all day and night long, it is a big indicator that the unit is undersized for your home. There are several things that you should be taking into consideration before you purchase a new AC unit for your home. Some of those are:
– Ceiling Heights
– Square Footage
– Direct Sunlight in the Home
– How Many People Live there
Weak Air Flow from Vents in House
If you feel that there is not as much airflow as there should be coming out of the vents in your home, it could be caused by an undersized unit. It can of course, also be caused by dirty ductwork or a dirty filter. However, if you have taken care of those two things and still have airflow problems, you should check the size of your unit.
Uneven Temperature in House
Most people expect each room in their home to reach the temperature they have their thermostat set to. If you have a room or rooms in your home that don’t seem to ever get cool enough or as cool as the rest of the house, it can be a small AC unit that is to blame. This is because it simply isn’t powerful enough to reach those rooms that are the furthest away from the unit.
Abnormally High Electric Bill
When your unit is too small for your home, it has to expend a considerable amount of extra energy as it is constantly working to cool down your home to no avail. This can result in higher energy bills. You will notice this particularly in the summer months when that unit is working as hard as possible to accomplish a task it was never meant to accomplish.
