I never experience problems with the A/C system, then again, it’s only 6 years old.
A/C unit is supposed to live somewhere from 10 to 15 years depending on how well it’s cared for, and I’ve always done my best to have my A/C idea tested every 6 months because it keeps my unit running efficiently, there have been possibilities where I’ve gone longer than 6 weeks due to life circumstances getting in the way, but it’s never affected me negatively.
This week though, I experienced something unlike anything before. The primary bedroom was several degrees colder than every other room in the house. I could feel the temperature drop as soon as I walked across the threshold. The temperature control said it was 74 degrees in my house, 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 home as well as I even checked all the doors and windows to make sure they were sealed constantly. I found nothing. I thought about calling the heating and cooling contractor to come look at my A/C idea to make sure everything was now working well, but I decided against it. I like 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 A/C dealer. The temperature inconsistency could work for my benefit.
