Did you know that you could be spending hundreds of unnecessary dollars in cooling and heating your home? If you live in a typical home, then it probably doesn’t have a strong defense system to combat leaking or dirty air. Therefore, it is up to you, the homeowner, to take certain measures to ensure that the air generated by your AC unit is clean and stays within your home.
See below for a list of common household problems that could be robbing your AC of its efficiency.
1. Exit Leaks
If you have children constantly running in and out of your home, a pet door, old windows, or cracks in your roof, then you are losing heated or cooled air at an alarming rate and paying for controlled air that you don’t get to enjoy. You should consider tightening up your homes exit locations by monitoring the children’s activities, closing off the pet door when temperatures are at their most extreme, replacing your old windows, and repairing your roof cracks. In doing so, you’ll be amazed at the money you’ll save.
2. An Old AC Unit
An HVAC unit that is between 10 and 15 years old won’t run as efficiently as a newer unit. As with any appliance, your AC unit’s parts wear out, the temperature gauge lags, and the unit becomes slower. This causes your unit to run more often in order to provide enough cool or hot air, which in turn costs you more money. Therefore, consider having a new, energy-efficient AC unit installed by a professional AC repair technician.
3. Dirty Filters
Dirty filters are the leading cause of inefficient AC units. If the filter becomes clogged with dust and debris, then the air cannot flow freely. Once again, your AC unit has to work harder to cool your home. The rule of thumb is to change your air filter every three to five months. Furthermore, changing your filter will also ensure better indoor air quality.

On June 22, 2011 our household A/C system was not functioning properly and my wife contacted your company and arranged for a technician to come out and trouble shoot the problems and fix them, if possible. We have lived in Florida since 1989 and know the value and necessity of having a fully-functional A/C system, especially in the brutally hottest...
It is always inconvenient to have your AC unit break. Fortunately, you can avoid having to live without cool air if you properly maintain your air conditioner. Preventative AC maintenance is not only a necessity for you, but also for the health and comfort of your children and pets. Therefore, take a look below to learn more about the importance of preventative AC maintenance.
In the severe heat of summer, you can overheat in a matter of hours if you’re left in a home without an adequate cool air supply. Breathing becomes difficult and your body will begin to dehydrate. Therefore, avoid these extreme situations by hiring a professional AC repair technician to perform preventative AC maintenance on your unit.
Have you ever made the mistake of turning your air conditioner off while you were away on vacation only to return to a stale and musty-smelling home? Now imagine living in a stagnant environment. This is what happens if your AC unit goes bust. Without a properly working AC unit, the home has no filtration system and dust, debris, and other harmful air pollutants collect on your upholstered couches, pillowcases, comforters, countertops, and carpets. This can be harmful to your upper respiratory system.
Without adequate cool air when the temperatures rise, you won’t be as comfortable in your home. As a general rule, you should have a professional AC repair technician perform preventative AC maintenance on your HVAC unit at the beginning of the season.
