3‌ ‌signs‌ ‌you‌ ‌have‌ ‌an‌ ‌oversized‌ ‌AC ‌

Are you stressed about your high electricity bills? Have you ever wondered why your neighbors are happy and receive low utility bills despite having the same number of appliances?  

Your HVAC(Health, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) network efficiency can be boosted by adopting smart habits, balancing maintenance activities, and keeping yourself up-to-date on your air conditioning system.

You might have purchased an expensive AC considering it would have extra power to cool your home without taking too many precautions to maintain them. But the real reason is installing an oversized air conditioner can lead to several problems. As we all know, air conditioners aren’t quiet. The noise isn’t too loud in compact AC’s, but in the case of an oversized AC, you might suffer a lot due to loud noise disturbing your day-to-day activities. Let’s take a step back and analyze if you tolerate an oversized AC in your home, whiting in more heating thereby affecting the room’s air conditioning.

Here are the 3 signs that your air conditioner is too large for your home – 

The AC is not cooling down your home.

An air conditioner follows a cycle of about 20 minutes to lower your home’s temperature to the thermometer’s temperature. If you have an oversized air conditioner, it will shut down before cooling your room temperature. You will still experience the hotness in your room, thereby causing you to run multiple cooling cycles. This process will eventually result in frequent wear and tear of your AC, thereby reducing its lifespan.

Your house is still humid.

Are you aware of the working of Air Conditioning in Roanoke? The process followed by an air conditioner is known as condensation, which removes moisture from the air. The condensation process is only successful if an AC completes one full cycle. An oversized AC is not that efficient to dehumidify your house. The increase in humidity results in mold growth and causes serious health problems.

You are paying high energy bills.

An oversized AC is less efficient as compared to compact ones. If you have an oversized AC, you might be receiving high energy bills, and the main reason for this is the high consumption of energy. An oversized AC requires more energy to reduce your room temperature and maintain a lower room temperature, resulting in wear and tear of the system.

An oversized AC is thereby not a smart choice while selecting air conditioners for your home. Remember, bigger is not always better if it is not meeting its purpose and causing you to pay high utility bills.

Replace your AC now with the efficient one if you are experiencing any of these problems in your home.
