Why Your AC is Not Cooling Your Home When Running

HVAC maintenance

You just want to get home and relax in your cool house. Instead, your AC is running, but warm air is coming from your vents. This problem may result from issues that are easily solved to more complicated ones. Let’s look at what might be behind your air conditioner woes.

Dirty Condenser Coils

Condenser coils in your outdoor AC unit release heat energy from the air inside your home. If these coils get too dirty, they won’t be able to release as much heat as before, meaning your AC won’t be cooling the air. The best solution is to get these coils cleaned by an HVAC professional. During their visit, a technician will also check the fan motor and blades to make sure they work properly.

Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant is responsible for transferring heat energy between the inside and outside of your home. But if there’s a leak in the system, your AC won’t be able to cool the air as efficiently. If this is the case, you need a professional to fix the leak and top off your coolant.

Dirty Air Filters

Your HVAC air filters capture dust, dirt, and debris before entering your air conditioning system. However, they will restrict the airflow to the system if they get clogged. This blockage causes the air conditioner to run inefficiently and may result in warm air coming from your vents. To prevent this issue, change your air filters regularly.
