Part One What Could Be Preventing Cooling

Leaking Ducts:  The most reoccurring reason why your AC isn’t cooling your home or office is leaking ducts.  Simply…the cooled air isn’t reaching the work or living space.  Worst of all we’ve found that leaking ducts allow cool air to escape to the outdoors and between walls.  In short, your HVAC unit will run harder to cool the space, cause a rising electricity bill. 


Wrong AC Size:  Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for most air conditioners to be installed without first analyzing the BTU output needed to cool the space.  Reliable Electric HVAC technicians know how to determine the correct HVAC size required to cool your home or office.  Can a unit get your space too cold?  Yes and that same unit may be unable to eliminate the humidity from the air.  A rule of thumb is…Too many BTUs may cause clamminess.
