Air circulation issues in your home? If you are experiencing this, check the vents in those warmer rooms. Vents bringing hot or cool air into the house winter/summer accumulate dust, pet dander, whatever, and should be vacuumed on a regular basis to ensure good air flow. At the same time make sure that your return air vents are not blocked by furniture or other items pushed up against them.
Experts like ProSolutions will tell you that it’s best to have at least two-thirds of your vents left open for best operation of your AC system. It is far harder to cool down a house versus keeping it at a constant temperature.
If the coil hasn’t been cleaned for a long time or the refrigerant has sprung a leak, here’s what to try:

Furnace filters should be changed every three months. Regularly changing your filter will ensure the air quality inside your home, as well as the safety and comfort of you and your family. In addition, regularly changing the filter will ensure your furnace doesn’t overheat, resulting in damage or an unexpected breakdown.
Preventative maintenance like this extends the longevity of your furnace and helps reduce maintenance and repair fees.
Not sure how long ago your filter was changed or if it needs to be replaced? A heating services provider can take a look at your filter and let you know if it should be replaced with a new one.

A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) is worth installing in Edmonton - especially in a new home. In fact, the Alberta Building Code requires all new homes to have a ventilation system installed.

That said, not all homes will benefit from an HRV. Older homes, in particular, may not see as many benefits because they are not as air-tight as newer homes. For instance, the energy savings from an HRV will be limited in older homes.
