If your air conditioner is running but not blowing cold air, it could be a sign of an issue with the unit itself or even something as simple as a dirty air filter. At Air Today Heating & Cooling, we’re here to help you troubleshoot any issues with your air conditioning system so that you can be comfortable in your home regardless of the temperature outside.
When it comes to AC units not blowing cold air, there are a few things you can check before calling in professional help:
1. Check the Thermostat
The first thing you should do is double-check your thermostat setting to make sure it’s set to cool and the desired temperature is lower than the current room temperature. If all those settings are correct and nothing happens when you try turning on your AC, then chances are there’s an issue with either the unit itself or one of its components.
2 . Examine The Filters
Dirty or clogged filters can significantly reduce airflow from your AC unit which will affect both how effectively it cools and how much energy it uses in the process. Make sure to clean and/or replace them regularly for optimal performance. Energy Star recommends changing your filter every 3 months.
3 . Inspect The Unit
Visually inspect the inside and outside of your unit for signs of excess dirt, debris or damage that might impede normal functioning. Take off any protective coverings and make sure all electrical connections are secure as this will help ensure proper operation of the system.
4 . Check Refrigerant Level
Low refrigerant levels can cause your AC not to blow cold air. A professional technician needs to do this as they have special equipment needed to safely check refrigerant levels and add more if necessary; this type of service should never be attempted by inexperienced individuals as it poses serious health risks due to potential exposure to refrigerants.
