What if Your AC Isn’t Cooling Your Home?

Being stuck with a malfunctioning air conditioner in the heat of summer is something that no homeowner ever wants to deal with. Luckily, if you do have an AC problem, temperatures haven’t quite reached the stifling point that require its use. That makes now the perfect time to check for any problems.

Even the most well-maintained air conditioning system can run into problems every now and then. One of the most common service calls we receive is that our customers’ AC systems simply aren’t providing any cooling. We’ve addressed this problem below, listing a few reasons why this can happen.

Ductwork Breach

Your ducts play an essential role in the functionality of your central air conditioning system. They are responsible for delivering conditioned air throughout your home, and you need them to be reliable. However whether it was poorly installed to begin with or it has experienced damages such as cracks or bends, your ductwork can become a problem.

Leaking Coolant

The refrigerant within your air conditioner should never leak, ideally. Your system is supplied with enough refrigerant upon installation to last its entire lifespan. So if you do suspect a leak, it’s best to call for repairs right away. Otherwise, the leak will continue to negatively affect the cooling process your AC goes through.

Condenser Coil

Your condenser coil is the component responsible for cooling the air in the first place. Therefore if it is damaged or faulty, it will cause your air conditioner to stop blowing conditioned air. This is typically indicative of a problem with a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker: both are relatively easy fixes.

Be sure to have your system inspected by a professional if you suspect any of the above mentioned problems.
