When you need to battle the summer heat, your HVAC will kick in and help cool your home. It’s a good thing when you can schedule your air conditioning to work during the day when it is needed most, but it shouldn’t be running all the time. With an air conditioner always on, it hurts more than just its efficiency.
Not all air conditioning systems are built the same, but most follow the same set of standards. Units manufactured years ago differ greatly from today’s modern systems, and those aged units could have a few problems inside that you may not realize. The components used in older models may need to work harder to cool your house, which could be a cause that your HVAC is always running.
Just as many air conditioners are different, many homes are constructed differently, too. The HVAC system installed in your neighbor’s house may not be suitable for yours. When certain components are not properly sized for the job, such as the ventilation ducts, it can cause your HVAC system to strain in keeping up with cooling your house.
Usually, an HVAC system that is always running means it is struggling to keep your home’s temperature and humidity at a steady level. This inefficiency does not just hurt the unit itself, but that inefficiency means you are spending more on the energy costs to keep it running.
This does not mean that your entire HVAC system needs a revamp. Instead, there may just be certain parts that need repairs or replacements. When you find that your air conditioning is constantly running, you want to call in a professional technician, like the ones at Sharon’s Heating and Air Conditioning.
