Five Reasons Why Your Air Conditioner Isn't Cooling Properly

All anticipate cool air from their air conditioner. However, an air conditioner does not always keep its end of the bargain. This is what happens if your air conditioner isn’t adequately prepared for the summer. When this happens, you’ll feel robbed, irritated, and literally sticky under the neck or even the body. You’re not sure whether your air conditioner needs to be repaired or replaced.

The most common reasons behind AC, not cooling are:

Clogged air filter. The air filter will be clogged if the air conditioner does not cool. In this situation, air cannot circulate freely, reducing the air conditioner’s cooling ability significantly. Clean or install the air filter as required.

Filthy coils. As the coils get filthier, the air conditioner becomes less efficient, making it work harder to cool the area. If the coils are dirty enough, the unit will never be cold enough and would be unable to cool the room.

Defective parts. A defective compressor run capacitor, a faulty control board, a bad thermistor, a choked capillary, and a faulty motor are some of the other technical reasons for home AC not cooling.

Undersized AC. People also make the mistake of purchasing an air conditioner based on their budget rather than the room’s requirements. In the summer, a small air conditioner in a large space can struggle to keep the room cool. The capacity of the air conditioner should correspond to the size of the room.

Inadequate cooling. The coolant generates through the evaporator coils, cooling the air that passes over them before being blown into the room. As a result, when the coolant level drops too low, the air conditioner stops functioning. In this case, Call a Professional from A&M Mechanical for a coolant top-up and refill at this stage.
