The heat we have seen this summer has been intense! There’s no doubt that you’ve been relying extra heavily on your air conditioning equipment to get you through the hot and humid days and nights. That being said, you’re more likely to have noticed any shortcomings as well with the increased usage of your system. These shortcomings could be a sign of another issue!

Here are a few things that can cause your AC to be less effective against the summer heat:

Equipment Sizing

The size of your air conditioning equipment has a huge impact on how well it operates. If the equipment is too big, you’ll experience uneven temperature levels throughout the home. If the equipment is too small, you’ll waste energy as it tries to cool things down.


Dirty air filters, blocked vents and dusty ducts can all cause your AC to work harder while outputting less cooling comfort than you need. In fact, neglecting to change the air filter over a long period of time could result in the equipment freezing and eventually breaking down.

Refrigerant Leak

The refrigerant in your AC is what cools the air as it flows through the system. A leak would create a situation where your air conditioning system doesn’t provide any cool air. If you notice warm air blowing from your vents, this could be the reason!
