It’s no secret that summers in Texas can get stifling hot. As a result, you want to make sure that your air conditioner works as effectively and efficiently as possible. One of the most common service calls we get is people asking, “Why isn’t my air conditioner cooling my home?” Your first instinct may be to panic and immediately call for repairs. We’re certainly ready for your call and happy to help out when needed. However there may be a more simple solution. Keep reading to learn more.
Check Your Thermostat
Make sure your thermostat is set to cool, and that the fan setting is set to “auto” and not “on.” Otherwise, your air conditioner will blow air even if it’s not being cooled. Also check to see that the temperature is at the setting you want. Someone else in your household may have different cooling preferences and may have changed it, or it might have accidentally been changed.
Change Your Air Filter
If your air filter hasn’t been changed out for a clean one in at least 3 months, the time to do this task is now. While your air filter is designed to protect the inside components of your system, if it’s clogged it can certainly disrupt the airflow to the air handler, and thus into your home.
Check the Outside Unit
Is there dirt, dust, or grass either covering the unit or at the base of your air conditioner outside unit? If so, be sure to clear this debris away. Too much debris can obstruct airflow, and your outside unit needs “room to breathe”—so to speak. If this doesn’t solve the problem, nor do the above mentioned tips help, then your AC may have a refrigerant leak, which will need to be repaired by a professional.
