It can be a big deal when your air conditioning goes out on a hot summer day though there are few things you can do before calling for help. Before you call an air conditioner repair company, there are some common issues you could troubleshoot. Today, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to discuss these troubleshooting steps.
Why Does My Central Air Run But Not Cool?
– Inspect the fan settings: Be certain the fan setting is set to “auto” and not “on” if you notice the air blowing is sometimes hot and other times cold. Even if it’s not being cooled, leaving it set to “on” will cause the AC to blow air.
– Assess the air filter: Take a look at the air filter if the air coming out seems weak and not very cool. The airflow can be blocked and even freeze the inside unit if the filter gets too dirty. Should they be found dirty, you will need to change the filters or have them cleaned if they are the re-useable type.
– Evaluate the outside unit: If the outside unit is covered in dirt, dust or grass, the efficiency is impeded. Ensure the unit is clean and free of debris. To allow some breathing room, trim back any crowding bushes or trees. Should you discover any ice around the coils it can have several \reasons as to why. A common source of the problem causing reduced airflow because of dirty filters, coils, or poorly working fans. This could also be due to low refrigerant level, which a professional has to called out to check and, if necessary, recharge. Generally, the problem comes from reduced air flow. Turn off the system to clean and closing the unit and turn the power back on as well as the fan. In a couple of hours, the ice should melt.
Why is There No Air Coming Out of Vents?
Double check the settings on your thermostat: Someone could have accidentally set it to “off’ or “heat,” be certain thermostat is set to “cool.” At least 5 degrees below your room temperature is where you want to set the temperature.
Ensure electricity is received to your system: By looking for the switch in the furnace or air handler, and outdoor condenser, check if the power is on. For a tripped breaker or blown fuse, check the main electrical panel. Should it continue to trip it is most likely a short in the system, reset the breaker and replace the fuse.
