AC Running But Still Not Cooling Your Home?

Posted on: Sep 10, 2019

Summertime is often the most expensive time of the year for your utilities. With the AC running throughout the warmer months your electric bill will run right along with it. But what happens with your AC is running, and yet your house is still not cool? It means you’re paying for your home to remain hot. To correct this issue, contact the Airco Service team and have your air conditioner serviced. Whether it needs a slight tune-up or full replacement, it is far better to know what’s going on and what it’ll take to repair than it is to continue running a malfunctioning AC.   

Condenser Unit Issues

Your condenser unit needs to be correctly maintained. The best way to do this is to bring in an HVAC technician to service and inspect your entire HVAC system on an annual basis. This will identify system-wide problems. Yearly inspections will help you avoid costly repairs as well as potential issues with your AC not running in the summer (or furnace not working in the of winter). 

Backed Up Airflow

Your AC needs to have clean air running into the system at all times. After all, if it isn’t pulling air in it can’t push air out, you’ll want to get the air intake of the AC unit checked out. Start by checking the vents nearest your AC and then move further away. You can also check the cold air return by placing a piece of paper towel on it. The paper towel should be drawn in against the vent. If it isn’t, it means there is an airflow problem. 

Thermostat Problems

Sometimes the problem is with the thermostat and not the AC. Change out the batteries if you haven’t done that recently (swapping them out once a year or so should be enough). If the display on the thermostat is blank and you’ve recently changed the batteries, it may be an electrical issue, or you might need a new thermostat. 

New AC Doesn’t Work?

Did you recently invest in a new AC? If so, it should be cooling your home. Well, if it isn’t, there’s a good chance the installation is faulty. It may mean your home is too big for the unit, or it wasn’t configured correctly for your home. Whatever the issue might be, you paid good money for a new AC. That is why you need HVAC professionals who know what they are doing to handle the problem. The Airco Service team can inspect the new unit and determine precisely why it isn’t cooling your home.
