This summer has been one the warmest in the history of Chattanooga. Even with regular maintenance checks, there is no 100% assurance that your air conditioning system will not give you a headache in the long summer months when temperatures raise over 100 day after day. And when you notice hot spots inside your home when your unit is running, you probably need an immediate system repair. But the cause does not always hide in your air conditioning system. Sometimes, hot and cold spots are also caused by damaged ductwork and can often times be repaired by simple ventilation tricks.
So what is causing this annoying temperature imbalance inside your home? Well, let’s find out.
Your A/C Units May Be In Bad Condition
There are different issues that can lead to an uneven temperature around the house, especially when you have multiple stories. This can be caused by something simple such as insufficient refrigerant levels in the system which is often caused by leaks, dirty coils which hinder proper heat absorption, a blocked outdoor cabinet can also be the reason for it prevents heat from venting out properly. Lastly, the compressor might be short-cycling, so your A/C has an incomplete cooling cycle.
Whatever the cause is, if not given proper attention, these problems can lead to major issues in your systems operation. That is why you should immediately call an HVAC professional like Action Air for complete diagnosis and solution.
Your Ductwork Might Not Be Up To The Challenge
When it comes to damaged ductwork, the primary culprits usually lies on the leaks and breaks along the ducts which will allow air to escape. The most common materials used for the ductworks are plastics and duct board which can easily be damaged, and over time these materials can wear.
These leaks can cause the hot and cold spots inside your home, and when conditioned air escapes from the ducts, you will be faced with an increase in your utility bill. Since you will be using your A/C system for the long summer months, you can expect much higher energy cost until you call a professional like Action Air to help and have your ducts fixed or replaced.
