Common Spring Cooling Problems

Things are warming up here in the Tri-State area. Are you already running into issues with your air conditioning? Below, we offer quick fixes for common spring cooling problems like high energy costs and excess humidity.

High energy costs

Running your air conditioner doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg. If your energy bill looks higher than it should be, give the evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils a good clean. "Dirty coils reduce the system's ability to cool your home and cause the system to run longer, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment," advises Energy Star.

Excess humidity


As temperatures increase, so does the humidity in your home. If there's too much moisture in your air, inspect the caulking around your doors and windows. Caulk any areas that have worn down to "keep out heat and humidity in the summer," recommends HGTV.

Air conditioning leaks

According to Popular Mechanics, if you're experiencing an air conditioning leak, "it's likely that the drain pan for the air-conditioning evaporator coil is overflowing due to a blockage in the drain line." The simple fix is to use a long wire to clear any debris that may be blocking the mouth of the drainpipe.
