What To Do When There’s No Cool Air

man-with-fanThere is nothing pleasant about coming home to a house that is hot and uncomfortable. Some people may be worried about running up the electricity bill so they avoid turning on the AC. Even worse is when you do finally go to cool things off only to discover that there is no cool air being produced by your system at all.

When you have an air conditioner that isn’t able to accomplish its key job, you’ve got a problem on your hands, to say the least. For one thing, it is going to make your home extremely uncomfortable and for another, any attempt to run the AC will end causing extremely high energy bills. Here are some of the potential reasons your AC may lose its ability to cool things off and how we can help get your home comfortable again.

Why Your AC Isn’t Cooling Your Home

There is more than one thing that can go wrong with your air conditioner that will cause it to lose its ability to create cool air for your home. Here are some potential problems that you should know about:

  • Low refrigerant levels: Refrigerant is responsible for the transfer of heat out of the air in your home. If your refrigerant levels get low because of a leak, it is going to hinder or halt your system’s ability to create cold air.
  • A dirty evaporator coil: Your evaporator coil is going to be the part of your system that cycles refrigerant and allows it to cool the air in your AC system. If that evaporator coil gets dirty though it will stop the refrigerant from removing any heat from the home.
  • A blocked filter: If your return AC filter is clogged with dirt, dust, and other debris, it will stop your AC from doing its job. This is because it will stop the flow of air into your AC meaning there will be nothing to cool.
  • A broken blower fan: Let’s say that your filter is clean and your evaporator coil is cycling refrigerant normally, things can still be stopped if the blower fan is brown. No fan means that the cool air won’t go anywhere.
  • A disconnected thermostat: Last but not least, a problem with your thermostat will hinder your AC’s ability to cool things off. If your thermostat can’t deliver orders to your AC system it may not turn on at all, leaving you hot and uncomfortable.
