It’s a good thing we have a way to stay cool in the heat of the summer. Your air conditioner may seem like a lifesaver when the temperature starts to rise. You don’t want it to run more than it should though. An air conditioning system that is running around the clock can mean big bucks in energy bills each month. If your air conditioner has been running more than it should, you may have a problem that needs to be addressed. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about some of the problems you may be facing if your air conditioning system is constantly running.
You Have Variable Speed AC
Do you know what type of air conditioning system you have in your home? If your AC is running more often than you think it should, it could be due to the fact that you have a variable speed AC. These AC units can run at many different speeds. Sometimes, they are operating using only about 25% of their capacity. It will usually run longer than normal but at a low power that will save you energy and keep your home cool. If this is the reason your AC is running, it isn’t anything to worry about.
Undersized AC Unit
When you have your AC unit replaced, there are going to be obvious problems if the AC unit is too small for your home. You need to have a unit that has the tonnage to get the job done. The summers are far too harsh to have a unit that is undersized in your home. If the unit is too small, it will be running almost constantly, and you still won’t feel comfortable in your home. If you have built onto your home, it is important that you make sure your AC unit is large enough to handle the extra square footage.
AC is Oversized
Just like you will come across problems with a unit that is too small for your home, you will also have problems if the unit is too large. It is vital that the AC unit you have installed in your home is calculated by a professional to ensure you are getting the exact size that your home needs. When your unit is too large, you will have a problem called short cycling. This happens when your AC unit thinks your home has reached temperature too early and shuts off prematurely. It won’t be able to remove the humidity from your home effectively as well.
