Has Your AC Been Struggling to Keep You Cool?
If your air conditioner is having a rough go of it, don’t ignore the message. HVAC systems will almost always alert you of any concerning situations. As with all mechanical systems, the sooner you take care of it, the better. Here are some reasons why your Atlanta, GA home’s air conditioner may be underperforming:
You Need AC Replacement
Atlanta cooling systems usually last from about 12 to 15 years with dedicated maintenance. Skimpy maintenance or no maintenance will translate into a shorter service life. An average air conditioner may start to lose its oomph after ten years.
The upside of AC replacement is that the current crop of cooling systems is equipped with mind-blowing technology to deliver impeccable comfort and remarkably reduced utility bills.
You Need AC Maintenance
A dirty air conditioner is an unhappy air conditioner. It will have difficulty pushing cool air through the system, and you might notice poor airflow. If the grungy buildup gets worse, it could cause the AC compressor to overheat and blow out the system altogether.
Your AC Filter Is Clogged
A dirty filter can make your AC overheat. It can cause blockages and leaks in the condensate drain and ice to form on the cooling coils. Air exiting the vents will be cold, but your system won’t be able to move it through the grungy filter. The upshot is accelerated wear and tear caused by a chronically overworked system.
During the Hottest Days of the Year
Air conditioners have a tremendous workload when Atlanta temps are exceptionally high. If your system performs well otherwise, it might just be temporarily overworked. This happens often, particularly in homes with upstairs bedrooms, vaulted ceilings, and lots of windows.
