Why Is My Air Conditioner Running Constantly

The air conditioners in most people's homes tend to run frequently during the summer. Does it seem as if your air conditioner runs more frequently than normal? It's worthwhile doing your research to prevent astronomical energy bills. The following are four reasons why it seems as if an air conditioner is always running.

 

You own a variable speed AC

It is possible for a variable-speed air conditioner to operate at as low a 25 percent capacity. In contrast to a traditional air conditioner that shuts off, a variable speed air conditioner runs at low power to keep your home at the right temperature while using less energy. Therefore, your AC may run longer than a single-speed unit, but you will still end up saving money and energy by using a variable-speed unit.

 

Your AC unit is too small to effectively cool your home

During summer, if your air conditioner doesn't have enough tonnage (cooling capacity) to handle the unique challenges of your home based on its size, layout, and temperature, it will struggle. If your thermostat is set at a certain temperature, it may run continuously to meet that temperature. Continuously running at full power can cause the system to overheat and cause components to wear out prematurely.

Your home's cooling needs and challenges are assessed by the best HVAC contractors during a thorough consultation. According to the size, layout, and number of stories of your home, they'll recommend an AC unit that can adequately cool it.

The air conditioner in your house is too big and short-cycling

You most likely have a short-cycling problem if your AC runs for a short period of time and the air in your home becomes muggy. If your AC system is too large for your home, it will not be able to remove humidity effectively, and it will usually shut down too early, leaving hot and cold spots throughout the house.

 

Your AC system is overdue for maintenance

Evaporator coils and condenser coils can become clogged with dust, causing the cooling process to be compromised. Because of this, your AC should be working harder and longer to reach the temperature you want. Over a year has passed since your system has been serviced, it's time to schedule one.
