An HVAC system that works properly is essential to achieve maximum indoor comfort. If there are rooms in your Charleston, South Carolina home that feel too hot or too cold, then your system isn’t working efficiently. Here are some of the top issues that cause uneven heating or cooling and what a professional can do to fix them.
Your System is Too Small
An HVAC system that is sized incorrectly is a common cause for uneven heating or cooling (or both). If your unit is too small for your house, it will run constantly and battle to maintain the right temperature throughout your home. As a result, your system will require additional maintenance because it is continuously being overworked.
An experienced professional can perform a load calculation to identify whether this is the issue and provide recommendations for an HVAC system that properly fits your home’s needs.
Your System is Short Cycling
If your system turns on-and-off more often than usual, then it is short cycling. This prevents your unit from keeping an even temperature throughout your home, wastes energy and causes more wear-and-tear, which can then lead to costly repairs.
Schedule professional maintenance to keep your HVAC system running efficiently and avoid bigger problems down the road.
Uneven Heating and Cooling Can Mean Your Ducts Have Leaks
Leaks in your ductwork can not only reduce your indoor air quality and waste energy, but it can also hinder your system’s ability to cool or heat your home evenly.
Avoid leaky ductwork by having a professional check your ducts and keep them cleaned and sealed throughout the year.
Uneven Heating or Cooling Could Mean Your System Needs to Be Air Balanced
Air balancing your system is another way to improve your unit’s performance and guarantee even heating and cooling at home. A technician can run tests to determine whether unbalanced airflow is the problem.
