Uneven cooling is among the most common air conditioning problems homeowners deal with. These problems can range from relatively small hot or cold spots to entire rooms and even floors that are hotter or colder than other areas at the same thermostat setting. The good news is that this is usually fixable, and you can get the details you need by scheduling an HVAC inspection.
Air Filters and Return Vents
Jco Heating A/C Electrical has been providing air conditioning services to Springfield, Oregon, and beyond for more than 15 years. In our experience, unevenness is often due to a lack of maintenance. The fix is often as simple as installing fresh air filters and opening and cleaning return vents.
Ductwork and Other Ventilation Issues
If that is not the solution, then the next step is usually to look to the ventilation system. Ventilation is imperative to moving air around a home. There can be a problem with a duct that is not getting the appropriate amount of air to a room. Furthermore, there can be too much natural ventilation that is causing cool air to be lost.
Insulation can also be an issue. Perhaps insulation in a particular wall or a particular area of the attic is no longer doing its job. There can also be issues with windows and doors not being energy-efficient and thus leading to that excess natural ventilation that we mentioned earlier.
Proper Pressure and Inadequate AC Unit Size
The most serious problems, which can be diagnosed with an HVAC inspection, have to do with the air conditioner or heat pump itself. If a unit is too small for the home being cooled, it can cause unevenness. Likewise, there are many reasons why the pressure balance within a system is out of whack, and that can lead to unevenness as well.
