Air conditioning systems can develop problems or stop working altogether. One of their most common problems are hot and cold spots, or uneven cool air distribution. These are the major causes of uneven cooling in your Plano, TX home.
Improper insulation can lead to uneven cooling because it leaves areas of your home exposed to hot or cold air. Heat transfer can occur between the insulated and un-insulated parts or even between rooms with different insulation levels. Proper insulation ensures that heat transfer is spread evenly throughout the space and that you don’t end up with pockets of hot or cold air where they don’t belong.
Dirty filters restrict airflow, which means that your AC system can’t cool your home as effectively as it could if the filter was clean. When you don’t replace the filter regularly, dust, pollen and other debris can build up on the filter and cause it to become clogged with particles. This causes less air to flow through the system, which causes uneven cooling in your home and can lead to more frequent repairs than usual due to mechanical breakdowns.
Old HVAC System
If your HVAC system is aging, it could malfunction and not provide you with enough airflow to heat or cool your home. This means that it won’t distribute the air evenly throughout the house. Regular maintenance can help prevent these issues. If you need to schedule a repair or maintenance visit to maintain the unit.
Leaking ducts can cause uneven cooling in your home because the air temperature coming out of your vents will be inconsistent. When the equipment is trying to heat or cool air that doesn’t belong there, it will reduce performance and efficiency. A well sealed HVAC system helps ensure that you get all the comfort that you are paying for.
