Why Is the AC Running But Not Cooling?

If your air conditioner is not operating properly, it could be time to call in a technician. One of the most common reasons to do this is when your air conditioner is running – you can feel air coming into the room through the vents – but the home isn’t getting cool. There are a few potential causes for this. If you are experiencing it, it is beneficial to call a licensed technician for air conditioner repair in Ajax instead of trying to make the repairs on your own.

Why Isn’t It Cooling?

There are a few potential causes for the home not to get cool even though the air conditioner is getting power and seems to be operational.

Air filter: One of the most common problems is a very clogged air conditioner filter. Make this the first thing you check. If air cannot get into the system, it cannot push enough air into the home. The system will continue to try to operate, but over time, it may begin to fail. If replacing the air filter helps cool the home, that is the right place to start.

Blocked condenser: Another potential problem is that the outdoor condenser unit is blocked. A blocked or clogged condenser coil cannot pull in enough air to meet the demands of the air conditioner. The condenser fan should pull in air from outdoors and into the system to cool. However, dirt, grass, leaves, and other debris can get in the way, minimizing the amount of air that can travel into the system. Check the outdoor unit for debris. If it is significantly blocked, this could be the problem.

Refrigerant leak: In some cases, you may need air conditioner repair if your system is running and blowing air, but no cool air is coming out. Refrigerant is a chemical necessary for cooling to take place. In some situations, the cooling system can develop a leak, leading to the loss of cooled air. When this happens, it can make it nearly impossible for your AC to get your home to a comfortable level. Have a technician come out to inspect the system to determine the problem, find the leak, repair it, and refill the refrigerant.

Undersized: In some situations, the air conditioner is undersized. That means that there is simply not enough power from the system to cool the entire home. That can lead to numerous limitations – including an inability for the home to get to the right temperature. It may be time to upgrade the system.

Cody is very professional and knowledgeable. He responded quickly to my enquiry. He worked with us to ensure we could set up the ductwork and venting in a way that maximized the basement.

Climate experts came in for HVAC/boiler maintenance when we moved into our new house. They ended up finding a problem that went undiagnosed by our home inspection that could have been very dangerous. They then ended up installing a new boiler for us super quickly. It was obviously a sudden expense but Climate experts made the whole thing feel a lot better due to their professional and concern for our safety. The new boiler not only works, but is...dare I say...beautiful! The copper piping work that they did is a sight to behold. Who knew that we would be so excited to show our family/friends our cool new boiler. We absolutely recommend these folks—they are reliable, professional, and make even the typically boring part of the house feel nice and pretty. You are in good hands with them!
