Common Causes of AC Problems
In the middle of July, when the summer temperatures are at their highest, the last thing you want is for your AC to stop blowing cool air. However, it's important to remember that your air conditioner is made up of many individual parts and components, all of which are capable of wear and tear. Therefore, breakdowns can and will eventually happen.
Some of the most common reasons why your AC isn't blowing cool air include:
- Your unit is undersized: When you have your air conditioner installed, it's important to ensure that it is the proper size for your property and cooling needs. Undersized units will have to work harder to keep up with cooling demands, thus making it run for long periods of time as it struggles to keep up with your desired temperature settings.
- You have a refrigerant leak: As refrigerant runs through your indoor and outdoor coils, it draws heat and humidity from your indoor air and releases it outdoors. Therefore, it's a crucial component of your AC system. When you have a refrigerant leak, it can cause your system to run for longer periods of time, and even damage the compressor, causing a complete system shutdown.
- Your evaporator coil is frozen: The evaporator coil is a crucial part of the indoor components of your AC unit. It is responsible for removing heat and humidity from warm air that passes through it and releasing the cooler air into your home. However, if you're noticing that your energy bills are higher or your AC is no longer cooling your home, it could be that you have a frozen evaporator coil.
- You have a blocked condenser coil: A central air conditioner has an outdoor component called a condenser coil. In a properly functioning unit, the condenser fan pulls air into your outdoor unit where it passes through the condenser coil to remove heat from your home. However, because it's located outside, it's easy for dirt, grass, and other debris to accumulate and create a blockage. This can result in reduced energy efficiency, no cool air, or a complete system shutdown if the blockage is severe enough.
- A dirty air filter: Your air filter is responsible for trapping airborne particles and contaminant to allow for cleaner air and a more efficient airflow. However, if your air filter is dirty, it blocks air flow, which reduces the cool air that circulates through your home.
