One of the last things you want to happen is for your AC to stop cooling down your house. If it is the middle of summer and your house is not being cooled by your AC your house can get hot very quickly. Hal Mechanical will talk about some of the reasons why your AC could stop cooling down your whole house.
AC Unit is Too Old
While an AC can last for many years they do not last forever. Most central HVAC systems can last from 12 to 17 years depending on how well you take care of them. The older it gets the harder it has to work to cool down your house and the more breakdowns you will need to repair. When your AC has to work harder it can eventually lose power and will stop cooling down your house altogether. Upgrading to a model that is more energy efficient can help fix the issue of your AC not cooling down your house and help save you money on coolant costs.
AC is Too Small for Your House
If your AC is too small for the size of your house then your system will draw a lot of power but it will not fully cool your house. Because of this, you will end up with hotspots, uneven temperatures, and drafts throughout your home. If this is the case then you will want to hire a technician to come to your home and determine the right size of AC for the square footage of your home.
Clogged Air Filters
One of the most common problems, when your AC is not cooling down your house, is because you have clogged or dirty air filters. You need to regularly replace your air filters every 1 to 3 months. Doing this can help eliminate the problem of bad airflow throughout your home. If you are unsure how to change an air filter or what kind you need, then contact a technician and they can help you figure out what the best one is for your home.
Need to Recalibrate the thermostat
Sometimes your thermostat can become miscalibrated. When this happens it causes the temperature control to have problems. It just needs to be recalibrated. Also, a factor that you need to consider is where your thermostat is located. If it is by doors, vents, or windows it can get an inaccurate reading. The room temperature immediately near your thermostat can be a different temperature than the rest of your house. When this happens, your AC may turn on more often than it needs to.
When you have a refrigerant leak this can eliminate the amount of cool air that is distributed from your AC throughout your house. If this happens it can be bad for your health and the environment, especially if your unit is older and is using R22. How do you know if you have a refrigerant leak? The air will fill warmer than usual, your AC struggles to cool down your house, it is short cycling, there is liquid by your outside unit, or you may hear hissing or bubbling while the AC is running. If you feel like this is the problem call a technician to come to get it fixed.
