3 Common Causes of Inefficient Residential Cooling

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Keeping in mind just how hot it can get in Phoenix, AZ during the summer months, you don’t need us to tell you that cooling your home effectively should be a top priority. The problem that many homeowners face, though, is that they are unable to cool their homes as efficiently as they’d like. Air conditioners require power in order to run, and that power does not come for free. However, exorbitant cooling costs may be the result of inefficiency caused by some sort of problem with your air conditioner, or even the way in which you use it. Here are 3 common causes of inefficient residential cooling that the technicians here at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning see. If you really want to improve the efficiency level at which you cool your home, we recommend giving us a call today to have any issues with your system addressed by our qualified Phoenix AC repair professionals.

  1. Leaky Ductwork – Many homeowners used ducted, forced air distribution systems in order to distribute cooled air throughout their living spaces. This can be quite an efficient means of doing so. However, leaky ductwork is an all-too common problem in many homes, and one which can seriously impede the efficiency with which your HVAC system operates. If you find that you have high energy costs, and you are unable to cool your home effectively or evenly, it is possible that your ductwork is leaking. Having your air ducts professionally repaired or sealed is the only way in which to eliminate the problem.
  2. Malfunctioning Thermostats – The thermostat(s) that you use in order to regulate temperatures throughout your home can play a major role in determining the efficiency with which your AC system operates. If your thermostats are in direct sunlight or located right by doors or windows, then it is possible that your thermostat will read temperatures improperly. This means that they may call for cooling continuously, racking up your energy costs in the process. If your thermostat is not properly installed, or if it malfunctioning in any way, you simply will not be able to efficiently cool your home.
  3. Refrigerant Leaks – Your air conditioner is reliant upon a refrigerant cycle in order to facilitate the heat transfer process. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the air in your home, travels to the outdoor unit, and that heat is released outside. The process then repeats as needed in order to keep your home cool and comfortable. If you do not have the right level of refrigerant in your air conditioner, its performance will suffer and you risk serious damage to your system.

Let Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning know if you are having trouble cooling your home efficiently. Whatever the problem may be, we can offer you and your AC the solutions necessary to cool your home more affordably. Our technicians are some of the finest in the business, and your comfort and satisfaction with the quality of service we provide are our top priorities.
