Why Your Home Isn’t Heating or Cooling Evenly

Do you find that one or more rooms are either warmer or cooler than others? This is one of the most common problems we run into here at Precision Air. Your heating and air conditioning unit should always heat or cool your home evenly, but this isn’t always the case.

A home that is properly balanced will not only feel more comfortable, but will help save you money as well. If you find that your home isn’t maintaining a consistent temperature in every room, there are a few common issues that could be to blame.

Ductwork Problems

Leaks: One of the main issues with ductwork is leaking. If there is a portion of your ductwork letting air escape, it won’t properly distribute air across the entire house. This will lead to uneven temperatures and cause your HVAC unit to cycle on more frequently, costing you more money than necessary.

Insulation: Maybe your ductwork is not properly insulated. This will also allow conditioned air to heat up or cool down as it passes through your system (depending on what time of year it is). Ductwork should always be properly insulated to minimize temperature changes as the conditioned air travels through the ducts and out of your vents.

Air Conditioner Issues

HVAC Losing Power: If your unit is nearing the end of its lifespan, it won’t be able to adequately push air through the ductwork. That means while a more powerful stream is blowing into one room, a much weaker volume of air could be coming into your furthest rooms.

Wrong Size Unit: Most people who run into this issue believe their AC unit must simply be too small when in fact the opposite is true. A unit that is too large for a home will not cycle on long enough to allow the home to heat or cool evenly.

Needs Service/Repair: Of course your HVAC unit might simply need to be serviced or repaired. If your refrigerant levels are low, it could cause your home to cool unevenly. On the other hand, if there is an issue with your heating system, you’re likely to have rooms that are too cold and others that are closer to your desired temperature.

Fixing this issue could be as simple as a routine tune-up, or it could be a sign of a larger problem. The best way to know for sure is to consult with a professional. At Precision Air, we can handle everything from HVAC service, to installation and repair. Our expert technicians can also repair and install ductwork and make sure that ductwork is properly insulated throughout your home.

Other Causes of Air Leakage

Windows and Doors: Air could be escaping through your windows and doors, which will contribute to uneven air conditioning in your home. A great way to combat this is installing efficient windows with the Energy Star rating and re-sealing all your doors to ensure no air is seeping out.

Construction:Here’s another problem we see all the time: someone puts an extension on their home without considering the size of the air conditioner. If you’ve recently added a room to your home and find that it just doesn’t get to the right temperature, it’s likely you’ll need to upgrade your HVAC unit to accommodate the new size of your home.

      I wanted to make sure my air conditioner was ready for summer. Fernando came out and made sure my unit was tip top. He was friendly, professional and not a sales man. Thanks Fernando!

      It was time to replace our AC, and so our choice was Precision Air, as we've been with them for over 20 years. Teman & Julian did an excellent job on the installation today, arriving on time.
