8 Reasons Your AC Is Running but Not Cooling
It can be very frustrating when your AC unit is running but not cooling. Knowing the reason for the issue is the first step towards solving the problem. Here are 8 possible reasons you may be experiencing the problem:
- Your Home May Have Too Many Air Leaks – a home that has too many leaks will let out lots of cool air, making it hard for the AC to cool the rooms.
- Your Air Ducts May Be Leaky – when your air ducts are leaky due to poor sealing or lose of insulation, the cool air that is generated will escape rapidly.
- Your Vents Are Closed Or Blocked – if you have clogged vents or you intentionally blocked vents for any reason, your home cannot be efficiently cooled even when the AC is running smoothly.
- Your Air Filters Are Dirty – your air filters have to be clean at all times for your AC to draw enough air to cool your home. If this is not the case, the machine can’t cool efficiently.
- Your Outside AC Unit is Dirty – your outside AC unit (condenser) needs to be clean and free of debris in order to function properly. If it is dirty the efficiency of the machine will be affected.
- You Have A Faulty Or Broken Condenser Fan Motor – the condenser has a fan that helps it to dissipate the heat that is being removed from your indoor space. If the fan is faulty or broken, your AC will not be able to dissipate heat properly.
- Your AC is Low on Refrigerant – when your AC is low on refrigerant due to leak, your AC unit will not be able to cool your home, especially during hot days.
- Your AC is Too Small for Your Home – when you are using a small AC unit for a room, it will be overworked without actually cooling the home the way you want.
