Air Conditioner Can’t Keep You Cool
Your air conditioner can’t keep you cool when its air filters are clogged by dust, debris, or dander. Airflow becomes restricted, making it difficult to move, cool and cycle back air into your home.
There are several common reasons why an air conditioner may not be supplying cool air:
1. Dirty air filter: A clogged air filter can restrict airflow, making it difficult for cool air to pass through. This can cause the air conditioner to work harder than necessary and result in warmer air being blown out.
2. Low refrigerant levels: Refrigerant is responsible for absorbing heat from the air and carrying it outside. If the refrigerant levels are too low, the air conditioner will not be able to cool the air effectively. Need to top up gas for the air conditioner unit.
3.Faulty compressor: The compressor is the heart of the air conditioning system and is responsible for compressing the refrigerant. If the compressor is faulty or not functioning properly, the air conditioner will not be able to cool the air.
4. Blocked or dirty condenser unit: The condenser unit is located outside the house and can become blocked by debris or dirt, reducing the efficiency of the air conditioning system.
5. Faulty thermostat: The thermostat controls the temperature of the air conditioner. If it is not functioning properly, the air conditioner may not be able to cool the air to the desired temperature.
6. Leaking ductwork: Leaking ductwork can cause the cool air to escape before it reaches the rooms it is intended to cool, resulting in warmer air being blown out.
7. Improperly sized unit: If the air conditioning unit is not the right size for the space it is intended to cool, it may not be able to effectively cool the air.
These are just a few common reasons why an air conditioner may not be supplying cool air. It’s important to have a professional HVAC technician diagnose and repair any issues with your air conditioning system.
