With summer coming in Venice, Florida, your AC system is about to get a good workout. While you want your AC to keep your home cool and comfortable, you definitely do not want to overwork it. If you happen to spot one of the following three signs, there is a good chance that your AC system is working too hard.
Soaring Energy Bills
One of the first signs that your AC system is overworked may come from your wallet. As temperatures rise, your AC system will have to work harder to keep up. As a result, you should expect to see a moderate rise in energy bills. However, if your energy bills suddenly rise above normal levels, your AC could be overworked and need repairs or maintenance. When parts break or wear out, your unit will work less efficiently, causing higher energy bills.
Your Home Is Humid With the AC Running
Do you feel sticky and uncomfortable in your home even though your AC is running? Humidity can indicate a problem with the coils of your AC. The best way to solve this problem is to call one of our technicians for repairs and a maintenance check to ensure that additional mechanical problems aren’t lurking in your unit.
Varying Temperatures in Your Home
When you walk through your home, does the temperature vary from room to room? Or is your AC just not running as smoothly as it usually does? Blocked ductwork or a malfunctioning fan can be the cause. The first step in solving the problem is to have your ductwork cleaned and to change the air filter. Working with one of our professionals can help you to identify the root cause of the problem and fix it.
