My Air Conditioner Is Not Cooling, Now What?

If your air conditioner is not cooling, there could be a few simple things to check before calling to schedule an AC repair appointment. Your unit might need a simple cleaning but check out these common problems that can cause your AC to not cool your house.

Air Filters

Are you changing your air filters every 30 days during the hot summer months? Dirty air filters keep air from flowing into your AC unit(s). This also causes your evaporator coil to freeze. Mark your calendar or hang a note on your fridge to change your filters every 30 days.

Outside Condenser

In layman terms, your AC cools your home by transferring the heat to the outside unit. If your outside units are dirty or if there are weeds or debris, they are unable to circulate the heat. Clean the area around your HVAC unit and spray it gently with water.

Thermostat Settings

The best way to cool your house is to set your air conditioner to AUTO, not ON. If your thermostat is set to ON, it will continuously run without cooling your house to its desired temperature. Set it and forget it. Set your thermostat to a temperature that is comfortable for your family and leave it alone.

If your house is still not cooling efficiently, you might have leak or bad condenser. Make sure to contact our team at Efficient Air as soon as possible. We specialize in Air Conditioning Repair and Installation in Goodyear, AZ and our surrounding communities in the West Valley.
