4 Common Reasons for Uneven Cooling

Uneven cooling in your home is more than just a nuisance, it can also serve as a signal that something is wrong with your air conditioner. Here are the top reasons you may experience uneven cooling in your home, and how to find some relief:

1. Your Room Vents are Blocked or Closed

Typically when we add furniture to our homes, we focus on where our couches would look best, or where the cabinet should go for optimal room space. In all of this interior designing, it can be easy to obstruct your home’s air vents.

Before assuming something is wrong with your actual unit, take a peek in each room and locate your vents. If you can’t find them, check behind the furniture — and then make any adjustments you need to so the vent is not blocked.

2. Your Air Filter Is Clogged

If you’re experiencing uneven cooling across your home, it could be due to imbalanced airflow in your unit. When air filters get kinked or clogged, it can wreak havoc on all aspects of our air conditioner — including making airflow irregular. To keep your air conditioner working efficiently, change your filters at least once every 1 to 3 months. This will keep your entire home cool, and also can aid in reducing indoor allergens.

3. Your Unit Has Seen Better Days

Uneven cooling can sometimes serve as a warning sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg. Usually, units between 10-15 years or older are recommended for replacement. As your appliance ages, it will lose the ability to function efficiently. If you can’t remember when your unit was installed, this may be a sign that you should have it checked for the need of replacement.

4. Your AC is The Wrong Size

Many customers think that the larger the air conditioner they install, the better cooling results they’ll experience. This is not necessarily the case. If your unit is too large or too small, it won’t be able to deliver cool air across your home efficiently.

The best way to get the correct sized unit is to have an HVAC technician perform a load calculation for your home to ensure the AC you choose can adequately cool your home.
