When your utility bill comes in the mail each month, you shouldn’t open it with an impending sense of doom, nor should you be shocked by what you see upon reviewing it. That being said, there are a lot of reasons as to why your air conditioning system in Royal Palm Beach may start to operate at reduced efficiency levels. Considering just how long and hot our summer seasons can be, it is vital that any problems resulting in poor efficiency levels be resolved at once. While you should never attempt to service your system on your own, it does make sense to have some idea as to what can lead to subpar efficiency. Here are a few reasons as to why your system’s efficiency may slip. Contact Envirotech Air Quality Services to get your home cooling system back on track.
Clogged Air Filter
If you are not diligent in changing the air filter within your HVAC system, then your efficiency problems may rest squarely on your shoulders. If your air conditioner must force conditioned air through a clogged air filter, then it is going to have to work harder than it should have to in order to distribute conditioned air throughout your home. This is a serious concern, and you should remedy your habits immediately.
While you can surely change your air filter on your own, you cannot hope to repair a refrigerant leak by yourself. Only professional HVAC technicians are certified for handling refrigerant in the first place. If the refrigerant level in your air conditioner runs low, then your system will not be able to transfer heat out of your home effectively. This condition can also lead to the icing of various components, which will further impede the system’s operation.
Poor Maintenance Habits
Changing your air filter regularly is a good start, but to truly maintain your air conditioner properly you must hire a trained professional. Only then can you rest assured in knowing that your system is not only functioning properly, but that it is doing so in the most efficient manner possible. Have your system inspected and tuned up regularly by a member of our staff, so that it functions as efficiently as it possibly can.
