When temperatures start rising as we get closer to summertime in Mercersburg, PA, you’ll become more reliant on your air conditioner. Even though your system will need to run more to keep your home comfortable, you don’t have to forfeit the energy efficiency that you’re looking for. If you notice any of the following warning signs, there’s a good chance that your AC is no longer operating efficiently.
Your System Runs for Longer Periods
Cycling refers to the length of time and the frequency that your air conditioner runs. If you begin to notice that your system runs more frequently and for longer periods, there’s something wrong with your air conditioner. When the system has to run more to keep your home comfortable, there will be a negative impact on its efficiency.
You’re Getting Inconsistent Temperatures
The temperature that you set on your thermostat dictates the temperature for every room in your home. However, if some rooms are noticeably hotter or colder than others, there’s clearly something wrong with your air conditioner. When a system begins to work harder in some spaces than others, you lose efficiency and will notice an increase in your monthly utility bills.
Your Utility Bills Are Increasing
The most obvious sign that something is wrong with your air conditioner’s efficiency is an increase in your monthly utility bills. While summer bills may be slightly higher, they should still fall within a reasonable range of your monthly average. If you notice a sudden spike in your utility bills during months where you use your AC more frequently, something is wrong with the system itself.
