Common Causes of Uneven Cooling

Do you have areas of your home that are warmer than others? Is the second floor in your home significantly warmer than the first?

There can be a few reasons why your home may be suffering from uneven cooling, and the HVAC experts at DB Heating & Cooling can help you with all of them. Just give us a call for AC repair and we’ll determine why your cooling in Emerson, NJ is uneven and get it back on track.

Reasons for Uneven Cooling

Here are the common reasons why your cooling may be uneven:

Issues with the Ductwork

Your ductwork is the delivery system for your cool air, but many people can have faulty ductwork and not know it. Faults in ductwork aren’t uniform, so it isn’t unusual for a particular room to be affected by faulty ductwork while others aren’t. Your ductwork may also be excessively dirty or be poorly installed; all of these problems can lead to uneven cooling.

Daytime Heat Gain

The other reason your home may have areas that are far warmer than others is daytime heat gain. The sun’s heat can add up to 10 degrees to your home during the day in the summer months. This is a significant amount of heat and will certainly be felt. However, there are ways to greatly reduce the amount of heat daytime heat gain adds to your home. Long drapes or blinds can be used to block out the sun; ceiling fans can be used to better circulate your cool air. Specialized window screens can also block out the sun, creating a natural shield against the sun’s heat; window awnings can also help.
