If you have one or more rooms in your home that seem to be a different temperature than the rest of the house, this can be annoying. Why does this occur, and how can you resolve the issue? Here are four reasons for temperature imbalances in your Ocala, FL, home:
Improperly Sized HVAC System
When your central air conditioner is too big for your home, it;ll turn off more quickly, causing some rooms to feel too hot or too cold. A central air conditioner that’s too small is unlikely to manage the interior temperatures of your home properly. A professional HVAC service technician can check the size of your system. If you require a replacement, we can help measure your home’s cooling load, select the best system and correctly install it.
How You Use a Room
What you choose to use a room for can also result in temperature fluctuations. For example, if you’re using a bedroom as a home office, it may feel warmer because of the equipment that you have in the room. This may include a computer, printer and server. These items can heat up a room. Zoning your home can help to cool certain areas without wasting energy cooling others.
If your attic or walls are lacking insulation, you may experience temperature fluctuations throughout your home. Poor insulation allows the outside air to enter your home, making it feel warmer or colder. As a result, this also adds strain on your air conditioner as it tries to compensate and increases your cooling bills.
Unsealed Windows and Doors
Over time, the weatherstripping around your home’s doors and windows can deteriorate. When it does, hot or cold air can make its way inside. To take care of this, apply fresh caulk around any gaps around these home features. By doing so, you’ll prevent leaks from adding strain to your air conditioning system.
