Most air conditioning systems are losing 20% to 50% of their cooling capacity.
Capture the lost performance capacity by identifying the problem areas and fixing them.
Your air conditioning system has two primary jobs:
- Cool the air
- Deliver the cold air throughout the home
When one of these two element is not performed correctly, your system losses capacity and performance. In most homes, improvements to air flow and mechanical performance can be made to dramatically increase your systems capacity.
Proper air flow is essential to delivering heating and air condition system performance capacity. If a system is rated to move 1,200 cubic feet of air and design or improper installation issues restricts air flow to 900 cubic feet, it is easy to see how your systems capacity is reduced by 30%. It is a common problem we see in homes every day.
Common air flow improvements include:
- Installing better quality filters
- Increasing the size of ducts
- Removing kinks and duct installation failures
- Increasing the size of filter grills
- Cleaning evaporator coils
- Cleaning blower wheels
- Adjust fan speed
Heating and air condition systems must cool or heat the air to be effective at maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home. When failures in the equipment reduce effectiveness of the system to heat or cool the air, the system loses capacity and performance.
Common A/C – heating system improvements include:
- Properly charging the system
- Replacing faulty parts
- Cleaning dirty components
- Calibrating & adjusting components
