It’s that time of year again when we rely on our air conditioning systems to keep our home’s cool. So, we know how frustrating it can be for homeowners who come home to an A/C that isn’t blowing cold air. Take a look at a few of the most common causes below to help troubleshoot your air conditioning problems.
Why Your A/C Isn’t Blowing Cool Air:
- Your Thermostat Fan is Set to “On” – If there is air coming out of your vents, but sometimes it is not cool, check to make sure that your thermostat fan is set to “auto.” If your thermostat fan is set to “on,” it may blow air even when it is not being cooled.
- Your Air Filter is Clogged – Over time, your air filters will become dirty and clogged with dirt, dust and other particles. When they are clogged, air will have a harder time passing through your system.
- Your Condenser is Dirty – Check your outdoor condenser. If there are overgrown bushes, dirt, and debris blocking the unit, clean it to give it some breathing room.
- Your Thermostat is Set to the Wrong Temperature – If your air conditioning system isn’t blowing any air at all, check to make sure that your temperature setting is at least five degrees below your room temperature at home.
- Your Circuit Breaker Tripped – Check to make sure that electricity is still running to your air conditioning system. If the fuse or circuit breaker has tripped, your AC won’t run.
