Why Your Room Just Won’t Cool Down

Why Your Room Just Won’t Cool Down

Sometimes, even with the AC blasting, our homes still don’t feel as comfortable as we would like. It can be frustrating to experience this, so we put together some troubleshooting tips on why this happens and what you can do to improve your home comfort.

Check Your AC Size

Your AC needs to be correctly sized to adequately cool your home. If your AC is too small, it won’t be able to produce enough cool air to keep your home comfortable. Your unit will constantly be running, and you won’t get enough cool air to be comfortable, which means you’ll just be wasting money.

Remove Sources of Heat

It can be hard to stay cool when you have additional sources of heat working against your AC. When it’s hot out, try to avoid using the oven for long periods. Switch to using a plug-in cooking appliance like a slow cooker or air fryer. Summer is also the perfect time to break out the grill!

You can also reduce the sun’s impact on your home by keeping curtains closed during the day and by using fans to help circulate air.

Change Your Filter

If your AC’s air filter is clogged with dust and debris, it’s likely preventing air from flowing through your home. If your AC is running, but the airflow is weak or nonexistent, the filter may be preventing proper flow.

An easy fix is to change out your filter for a clean one. Try to change the filter every 30 to 90 days, depending on use. You can also clean out your air vents to make sure they are not being blocked by dust or buildup.
