Home and business owners tell us it’s the last thing they want to experience – a real-life Goldilocks and the Three Bears story. You know.. this room is too hot!? This room is too cold!? This room is just right!?
Uneven cooling is one of the most common complaints we hear at Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating. There can be a number of reasons why your air conditioning unit is not cooling rooms evenly. Let our professional technicians, skilled in air conditioning repair in Highland CA and other surrounding communities, help you find the problem.
- Ductwork issues:
A Sanborn’s inspection often determines the problem is in your ducts. Air flow return ducts are essential for even cooling. It’s not uncommon to find there aren’t enough return ducts in a home or business. We’ll give you a plan to add more air return capacity if it’s feasible. Our technicians will also locate any blockages or leaks. Sometimes a duct cleaning can dramatically increase cooling efficiency.
- Problems in the HVAC system:
Something as simple as replacing dirty filters can solve the problem of uneven cooling. They block the airflow and prevent the cool air from circulating properly. Our technicians will also make sure there are no problems with your thermostat or the electrical dampers used for zone control.
- Make sure the AC unit is the right size:
Sometimes Sanborn’s (formerly known as West Coast Mechanical) will find the calculations made when your HVAC system was installed are incorrect. The result is a system without enough capacity to evenly cool your home during the long, hot summers the Inland Empire is famous for.
After Sanborn’s fixes any leaks or other problems in your ducts and determines your A/C system has clean filters and seems to be operating normally, then we’ll have to talk about other solutions. The best choice may be adding some supplemental cooling.
It’s easy to do with ductless mini-split heat pumps (also called ventless air conditioners). They efficiently deliver conditioned air directly to the rooms or areas with the hot spots. The indoor air handler is usually mounted on the wall. As many as 4 can be connected to one outside condenser and each one can be set to a different temperature. Sanborn’s recommends mini splits from Trane and Fujitsu.
