What Air Temperature Should My Air Conditioner Produce?

Get your heating and air conditioning system checked this spring for best results as the temperatures heat up.

It's that time of year - many homeowners are firing up the cooling function of the heating and air conditioning units to make sure it will run correctly when the hot weather returns. Just like any other piece of machinery, heating and air conditioning units deteriorate over time. Belts wear down, fasteners become loose, fluid levels wane, and moving parts falter. If you have noticed the air produced by your air conditioner doesn't seem as cold as it once was, it might be time to have your heating and air conditioning system inspected by an HVAC expert.

You can easily test your air conditioner's performance on your own before your HVAC company visits. With the system running, place a thermometer in front of your air return vent until the thermometer displays a steady reading. Then, place the thermometer in front of an air vent and get another reading. Subtract the cold air temperature from the air return temperature. If the difference is between 14 and 20 degrees, your system is performing pretty well. If the difference is less than 14 degrees, it's definitely time to call in a professional.

Now is the perfect time to have your heating and air conditioning system inspected. The springtime temperatures make it pretty comfortable, and you want to get your HVAC system tuned up before the hot weather hits.

Don't wait for the oppressive summer heat to arrive before you find out something is wrong with your air conditioner. Get in touch with your HVAC company this spring to make sure your air conditioner is ready to get cranking as soon as summer arrives.
