I never experience issues with the AC system, but then again, it’s only six years old.
HVAC equipment is supposed to live anywhere from ten to fifteen years depending on how well it’s cared for.
I’ve always done my best to have my HVAC system serviced every six months because it keeps my system running efficiently. There have been occasions where I’ve gone longer than six months due to life circumstances getting in the way, but it’s never affected me negatively. This month though, I experienced something unlike anything before. The primary bedroom was five degrees colder than every other room in the house. I could feel the temperature drop as soon as I walked across the threshold. The thermostat said it was 72 degrees in my house, but my primary bedroom thermometer said it was 67 degrees. I couldn’t figure out why there was a dramatic difference, but I looked at everything. I looked at all the air vents in my house and I even checked all the doors and windows to make sure they were sealed properly. I found nothing. I thought about calling the HVAC company to come look at my AC system to make sure everything was working well, but I decided against it. I enjoy sleeping in a cooler bedroom and if I didn’t notice anything negative with my energy bills, why change it? I’m going to see how this plays out before contacting the HVAC company. The temperature inconsistency could work for my benefit.
