The hot summer temperatures make the HVAC system in your Plano, Texas, home even more vital to your comfort. Unfortunately, if your system is not running as efficiently as it should, then you are likely paying significantly more than necessary to keep the temperature in your home where you want it to be. Check out some of the most common signs that your HVAC system is lacking efficiency.
Your Utility Bills Continue to Climb
While a slight rise in utility bills could be due to higher-than-normal temperatures, if the temperatures have been consistent and your utility bills continue to climb, that’s often a sign that your system is not running as efficiently as it should. High bills are an indication that your system is running harder than it needs to and should be looked at.
Your System Is Running Constantly
If you notice that your HVAC system is constantly running, it’s often a sign that it’s struggling and failing to keep the temperature consistent. This can be a sign of major problems with efficiency or a sign that your unit is not the correct size for your home. Consult with an HVAC technician to determine if your system can be optimized or if you will need a larger unit.
Your House Still Feels Humid When Your AC Is Running
Your air conditioner will not only deliver cold air into the rooms of your home but will also help remove the humidity so you’re more comfortable. If you feel sticky or clammy in your home, there’s a chance that your AC system is not working as efficiently as it should. If your refrigerant is low or you have a maintenance issue, your evaporator coils may not be getting cold enough to cool the air and remove the humidity.
