Want to Reduce Your Home's Cooling Time? Here's How

Damien McCusker

Keeping your home cool during warmer times of the year is an important part of your home’s overall comfort. However, a common issue is that your home may take too long to cool, or it seems like the AC never shuts off. If your home is taking too long to cool off, the following tips can speed up the cooling process.

How to Reduce Your Home's Cooling Time

·        Clean Your AC System’s Filters. Blockages in your AC’s filters can seriously restrict airflow. Dirty filters mean less air gets into your home, and your AC system has to work longer and harder to keep your home cool.

·        Look for Leaks. Over time, leaks can develop in your home's duct system. These leaks can form where your home’s AC equipment connects to your duct system, the ducts themselves, and other places, such as loose vents. No matter what the cause, leaks release cold air, making the overall cooling process take longer.

·        Have Professional Maintenance and Repairs Done. Regular maintenance and repairs keep your AC unit running at its best. If you find that your cooling time keeps getting longer, this can point to an underlying issue in need of repair. By hiring professionals, you reduce your cooling time by addressing regular equipment needs and also making minor repairs before they become much larger issues.

·        Upgrade Your System. Finally, in some cases, the best solution is to have your AC system updated with modernized equipment. Older units are less efficient than their modern counterparts, and in many cases, continued repairs are simply not financially feasible.
