How Long Does it Take to Cool a House After an AC Repair Job?

blue-question-markSpring has arrived and your air conditioner is down for the count. You need air conditioning repair, but the temperatures are heating up. So it begs the question, how long is it going to take to cool your house off again after an AC repair job?

We’re going to get into answering this question thoroughly below. For now though, we want you to know that you can rely on our team members for air conditioning repair in Minnetonka, MN. We’re professionals who care about the quality of our work, but we take time into account as well. We’re speedy without sacrificing the quality of our services.

How Long Does It Take?

First things first—we need to explain that this answer varies from home to home.

The thing about cooling down a home is that there are certain factors that determine how fast your home can cool down. They’re the same factors that you consider when you’re sizing a new system for your home. The factors include:

  • The size of your home
  • The materials used to build your home
  • The amount of windows and the type of windows you have (are they new and energy-efficient or on the older side?)
  • The home insulation
  • The location of your home
  • The quality of your home’s ductwork
  • The amount of people in your home
  • Your personal preferences

As you can see, there are quite a few factors determining how long cooling off your home can take. If you’re like the average person who lives in a moderate-sized home with four people or less, it shouldn’t take too long. If you live in a large home with five or more people, it’s going to take you a while to get cool.

We know that we’ve thrown a lot of information your way and you might just want a simple answer. Here is a general rule of thumb: most central air conditioners should cool a moderate-sized home (about 4 bedrooms) by about 10 degrees within the first three hours. This means that you should be cool in no time!
