Why is My Air Conditioner Ineffective?

Any homeowner with air conditioning has experienced some oddities in its functionality at some point or another. If it is not blowing as much cold air out as before, chances are it is working harder than ever to give less comfort to your home. Today, we’re going to talk about why your air conditioner might be not working its best, and why you should reach out to our team at Efficient Air for regular maintenance.

What’s Making it Ineffective

There are many possible reasons that your air conditioner may be struggling to keep your home at the perfect temperature. We’re going to highlight those that we’ve seen occur the most often, especially when it comes to homes not giving proper regular maintenance to their systems.

  • There’s a lack of power going to your unit. Often, fuses break due to the overworking of a home’s electrical system. When that happens in an air conditioner, it can lead to dire consequences, including expensive repairs. Make sure to monitor your electricity usage, and talk to professionals about how to prevent burning fuses in the future.
  • Your HVAC system is leaking. From air in the ducts to coolant in the AC itself, even the smallest leaks can cause detrimental effects to your efficiency. Getting these leaks fixed is as simple as scheduling our residential AC repair available in Morris County and the surrounding areas, so don’t hesitate to call us for near-immediate relief.
  • Your unit’s airflow is disrupted due to blockages. This can be in the form of ducts that haven’t been cleaned in ages or your vents, inside or out, being blocked by foliage or furniture. Make sure that you regularly check the outside part of your unit and your inside vents to ensure that these aren’t the exact issues your unit is suffering from currently.

All of these reasons and more might significantly impact your air conditioner’s effectiveness, so don’t wait until the high bills roll in through the mail. Reach out to our team today and get professional service fast.
