Why Is My AC Running but Not Cooling?

If your air conditioner is on but it’s not cooling your home effectively, several possible issues could be the culprit:

  • Dirty air filters: Clogged air filters restrict airflow, reducing the system's efficiency and cooling capacity. Check and replace dirty air filters if necessary.
  • Thermostat issues: Incorrect thermostat settings or a malfunctioning thermostat can cause the AC to run when it shouldn't or prevent it from reaching the desired temperature.
  • Refrigerant leaks: Low refrigerant levels due to leaks can lead to inadequate cooling. Our technicians can locate and repair any leaks and recharge the refrigerant.
  • Frozen evaporator coils: Restricted airflow or low refrigerant levels can cause the evaporator coils to freeze, preventing proper heat absorption and cooling. Turn off the AC and allow the coils to thaw, then contact our team to address the root cause, such as cleaning air filters or repairing refrigerant leaks.
  • Dirty condenser coils: Accumulated dirt and debris on the outdoor condenser coils can reduce heat transfer efficiency, causing the system to struggle to cool your home. We can clean the condenser coils to restore proper airflow.
  • Faulty compressor: A malfunctioning compressor can lead to inadequate cooling. If you suspect an issue with the compressor, such as unusual noises or vibrations, it's best to have our professionals inspect and repair the issue.
  • Blocked air vents: Blocked or closed air vents can restrict airflow, preventing proper cooling. Ensure all air vents are open and unobstructed for adequate airflow throughout your home.
  • Electrical issues: Faulty electrical components such as capacitors or contactors can affect the operation of the compressor or fan motor, resulting in reduced cooling capacity. Our technicians can diagnose and repair any electrical issue.

AC Elements to Check Before Calling for Repairs

Before calling for professional AC repairs, there are several elements you could check yourself to troubleshoot common issues:

  • Thermostat settings and batteries: Ensure the thermostat is set to "cool" mode and the temperature is set lower than the current room temperature. If your thermostat uses batteries, replace them if they're low or dead.
  • Air filters: Check and replace dirty air filters, if necessary. Clogged filters restrict airflow, reducing the system's efficiency.
  • Circuit breaker: Check the circuit breaker or fuse box to ensure the circuit powering the AC unit hasn't tripped or blown a fuse.
  • Outdoor unit: Inspect the outdoor unit for any obvious signs of damage or obstruction, such as debris blocking airflow or vegetation encroaching on the unit.
  • Indoor vents: Ensure all indoor vents are open and unobstructed to allow for proper airflow throughout your home.
  • Condensate drain: Check the condensate drain for clogs or blockages. A clogged drain can cause water to back up and potentially damage your AC system.
  • Listen for unusual noises: Pay attention to any unusual noises coming from the AC unit, such as grinding, squealing, or rattling, as these could indicate a problem that requires professional attention.

If, after checking these elements, you're still experiencing issues with your AC, or if you're unsure about performing any of these checks yourself, get in touch with 1st Choice Air Comfort for further diagnosis and repair.
