Why is My AC Running but Not Cooling? | Tempe, AZ AC Repair

 

Why is My AC Running but Not Cooling? If your air conditioner turns on and your thermostat is adjusted correctly, but your machine still doesn't cool, it may be because of a dirty or blocked air condenser.

If your AC still isn't cooling air, you might have a compressor or refrigerant problem and will need to call a Tempe, AZ, same-day AC repair professional.

What is wrong with my air conditioner? Is a common question, so here we have three of the primary culprits that require AC repair.

 

AC Needs AC Repair When it Won't Turn On

If your air conditioner isn't working, check to see if the condenser is running outside. Check that the device is turned on and that your thermostat is adjusted correctly.

Lower your thermostat by 5 to 10 degrees to see if that solves the problem—and make sure your thermostat is set to cool. Many thermostats are complicated, as our Maintenance Manager, John, points out, and homeowners can save time and money by reading the manual.

Then see if the problem is caused by a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

If your air conditioner either won't turn on or your coil is frozen, you might have a problem with your motor or compressor and need to have your device repaired by a professional.

 

AC Unit Isn't Cooling Air in Tempe, AZ

If your air conditioner turns on and your thermostat is adjusted correctly, but your machine still doesn't cool, it may be because of a blocked air condenser. The first step is to inspect the external device and clean up debris or weeds to obstruct airflow.

After that, make sure your filter is safe. The filter is often dirty, and when it limits airflow to the evaporator coil, the coil will freeze. If you have pets or use your air conditioner regularly, you can need to change your filter more often. Take your filter out and see if you can see through it as a test.

If your air conditioner is still not cooling, you might have a compressor or refrigerant problem and will need to call a professional.

 

A Tempe, AZ Repair Specialist Can Set Your Home AC

If your air conditioner is turned on and set correctly, but your home still isn't cool enough, you can have a unit that isn't the right size for your home.

Remember that your cooling system should be configured to maintain coolness in your home on a typical summer day. The average device should keep a temperature difference of 20-25 degrees in between indoor and outdoor conditions. 

If your air conditioner still can't keep up on a hot summer day, you might have a charging issue or a frozen evaporator coil.
