Why Is My AC Not Blowing Cold Air?
The most common complaint that someone in need of AC repair has in Jacksonville is that their air conditioner isn’t blowing out any cold air. This can make a home unbearably hot, or even unsafe to be in, during the hottest months of the year. There are multiple reasons why an AC may not be cooling your home.
The Thermostat Settings
The first problem could be the thermostat settings. If the fan setting is set to “on”, it will cause the AC to blow air round the clock, even when your auto programming isn’t set to cool the house. Set the fan to “auto” so that the AC only comes on when the house is too warm. Another option could be that your thermostat is broken and in need of repair. If the thermostat isn’t correctly telling the AC when to come on, or how cold to get, this is a big problem.
The Air Filter
A common issue we see with AC repair work is that the air filter is dirty. If the AC is blowing cool air, but only a tiny, weak stream of air is coming out, this is the likely culprit. The air filter catches particles in the air as the AC works, and if it gets very dirty and clogged, it could make it hard for air to pass through. An air filter should be changed at least every six months, if not sooner.
AC Repair Is Needed
Finally, the issue could be that your outside AC unit is in need of repair. First, check that the unit isn’t covered in debris like fallen leaves or grass trimmings. If there’s a big bush or something right by the AC, clear that away. It could be that the unit is having a hard time drawing in the air due to these problems. However, if you don’t see anything like that, it could be that the unit fan isn’t working, or it is low on refrigerant.
