It’s summer in Colorado, and no one wants to be trapped inside a stuffy, hot house. It is not only inconvenient, but it can also pose a health danger to you, your family, and any pets you may have. Here are some things you may attempt to get your air conditioner to start blowing chilly air again.
Check Your Thermostat Setting
First, double-check that your thermostat hasn’t been turned up. If the temperature hasn’t changed, make sure the thermostat is set to auto or cool rather than heat. Sometimes, you might want to try setting it to ON instead of Auto in case your home is registering as cooler than it actually is.
Leakage of Refrigerant
The refrigerant in your air conditioner is what keeps the air cool and absorbs the heat. As a result, if there is a leak, the amount of cool air will be reduced. Here are a few methods for detecting a refrigerant leak:
- The house is hot and stuffy.
- Your AC is making a hissing noise
- There is icy frost that is building up on your air conditioner
- Your electric bills are much higher
The filter has become blocked or is unclean.
If you don’t change your air filter on a regular basis, it will become blocked. When your filter becomes clogged, airflow into your home is restricted, which can lead to more serious problems if not addressed. Remember to change your air filter every three months to avoid this.
It’s possible that your condenser or evaporator coil is unclean.
Your condenser may be dusty as well, especially if your filter is unclean. Filters try their hardest to keep coils clean, but they might wear out over time.
Dirt and debris might clog the condenser, which is located outside your home. As a result, AC is hampered, and you should have this evaluated as well.
Air conditioners, like any other machine, will endure regular wear and tear over time. At some point, there will very certainly be a mechanical problem. If this occurs, contact a professional to inspect the inner workings of your HVAC system.
AC Unit Replacement
Your air conditioner may be nearing the end of its life, especially if it’s more than 15 years old. Your HVAC system will continue to break down and perform incorrectly if you do not maintain it on a regular basis.
