High Electric Bills?
Is your bill much higher than you think it should be?
Are you using a lot more electricity than you used to but haven’t changed habits?
Most Tampa Bay air conditioning contractors will tell you that you need to upgrade your air conditioning system to a newer unit. That is not always the solution. There are several factors which may influence the efficiency of your AC system, including the below:
- Air conditioners and their components require regular maintenance to function effectively and efficiently throughout their years of service. If your air conditioning system’s maintenance is not up to par you will be sure to experience steady decline in air conditioning performance while your energy use steadily increases.
- If the unit has not been properly maintained and the coils are clogged the unit will have to work longer and harder to achieve the results you want. This also decreases the lifespan of your unit.
- Rodents or service people may have damaged duct work in the attic creating costly leaks. You may be wasting money cooling your attic!
- Heat strips can malfunction and run while the in cooling mode causing your air conditioning system to heat and cool at the same time!
- Improperly sized duct work can make your air conditioner work too hard.
- Insufficient or uneven insulation make your air conditioning system work harder to cool your home.
- Home envelope problems may be letting cool air out and unconditioned air in through holes you don’t even know exist .
