It’s that time of year again – the temperatures stay below triple digits, people start to wear sweaters, everyone is eating pumpkin everything, and the AC bill starts to magically drop into almost nothing. It’s glorious. However, because your AC unit doesn’t run as often in order to maintain your cool temperatures, that also means that your home may become stuffy and warm in certain rooms if your ducts are not properly sized and installed. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- If your ducts are not properly sized, your air conditioning unit must work harder to pump air to different parts of your home. This time of year when the weather is temperate means some rooms in your home will not receive the proper amount of air and will be left feeling stale and musty. Properly sized ducts ensure that every room receives the appropriate amount of air.
- Some ducts are the right size, but have not been properly sealed. If this is the case in your home, you will notice because your air conditioning bill seems to be higher than that of a neighbor who has a similar home, yet your home has rooms that are not cooled to the 78 degree temperature you have it set to.
- Having someone come out to inspect your ducts can quickly put your mind at ease and determine immediately whether you might have one of these duct issues.
Don’t waste a penny more on your air conditioning bill, especially when you should be paying almost nothing during these beautiful winter months. Contact the experts at Plumbing & A/C Medic for all questions in air conditioning Tolleson AZ residents could have.
