Five things that can keep your air conditioner from functioning properly.
With our service area's Delaware, Pennsylvania & Maryland climate, comfort is far more a question of humidity control than of mere cooling. In fact, if your AC is operating efficiently, you'll feel comfortable even at a higher thermostat setting. This can significantly lower your summer electric bills.
Some of the things that prevent your AC from removing humidity include:
- Oversized systems
- Improper installation
- Neglected maintenance
- Improper refrigerant charging
- Leaking or poorly designed ductwork.
Any one of these conditions can lead to short-cycling. What that means is that the thermostat's target temperature is reached BEFORE sufficient humidity has been removed. Your first reaction will be to further lower the thermostat in search of comfort. Unfortunately the result is only cold damp uncomfortable air and a lot of wasted electricity.
The first step toward achieving cooling comfort and efficiency is to schedule Stan's Precision AC maintenance service. When he arrives, your Stan Perkoski professional will ask about your home's summer comfort. Be sure to let him know about any temperature swings you may be experiencing, areas that don't heat or cool sufficiently, if and how often you may be making adjustments to the thermostat. That information will help him zero in on solutions to your summer comfort problems.
Most often, routine maintenance and some minor adjustments are all that are needed. Sometimes ductwork repair or modifications are required. If the time is approaching for replacement, you'll be happy to know that many of today's more advanced controls monitor humidty as well as temperature. With these, your new system will maximize comfort while significantly reducing energy use.
If you're not happy with your summer comfort or think your electric bills have been too high, schedule precision maintenance now. Your 100% satisfaction is guaranteed. If your AC were to fail anytime this season, you'll enjoy priority service PLUS a full refund for the maintenance service charge.
If your AC's age (10+ years) or low efficiency rating suggest that replacement may be a better course, schedule a no-obligation no-pressure consultation with your Stan Perkoski's professional.
