There are a number of things that can decrease air conditioner efficiency, and having them fixed by a pro saves you money in the long run. It may be tempting to work on the air conditioner in your Berlin, MD home yourself, but it’s a task that’s best left to a professional technician for safety reasons. A professional HVAC repair technician can quickly assess the reasons for the unit’s inefficiency and fix the problem.

Leaky Ductwork

As much as 30 percent of the cooled air your AC unit puts out can escape if you have leaky ductwork, leaving you paying to cool parts of the house or even outdoors where you can’t enjoy it.

Miscalibrated Thermostat

If the thermostat is not calibrated correctly, your air conditioner can shut off too soon, leaving your family warmer than desired, or it may waste energy by running longer than it needs to when cooling your home.

Compressor Has Built-Up Ice

A coolant leak can cause ice to build up on your air conditioner compressor. If too much ice builds up on the compressor, it also damages the coils.

Clogged Air Filter

A clogged air filter restricts the airflow inside your AC unit and reduces its efficiency. The filter should be cleaned between once a month and once every three months during the summer.

Motor Issues

If the motor in your air conditioner gets dust in it or runs low, it has to work harder to cool your home. It’s reduced efficiency means it costs you extra to run the unit.

Dirty Outdoor Condenser Coils

When the outdoor components of an air conditioning unit are dirty, the dirt keeps the unit from releasing heat properly.

An inefficient air conditioning unit isn’t something you want to ignore because it can increase your utility costs. Get a professional, custom assessment of your AC unit by contacting Griffith Energy Services, Inc. Visit our website or call us today at 888-474-3391.
