Why Is My Air Conditioner Not Cooling My Home?

Why Is My Air Conditioner Not Cooling My Home?

As the summer months approach, issues with air conditioners become more common. Long winters and improper care can lead to sub-par cooling and higher energy bills. If your house is warm despite the air conditioner running, you may be in need of professional help.

Most commonly, air conditioners are not cooling properly because they are lacking air flow. Leaves, dust, and other particulates can clog the evaporator coils and cause issues with cooling. While you can clean and replace the filter, it is best to contact A-Plus Quality for HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area to properly restore the unit to working condition. 

Another common issue is damage to the fan or fan motor. The fan is responsible for moving the air across the evaporator coils, and if it is running too slow it can form ice buildup. A buildup of ice can damage the motor or cause it to partially lose its power from the supply. The best option is to contact A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, if you believe your motor is damaged as a certified technician will need to assess the flow of electricity.

The last common issue is damage to the thermistor. This component measures the temperature of incoming air and signals the main control unit to power on or off. If it is damaged or becomes defective, it will not properly turn on the circuits when the correct temperature is reached. The thermistor is a wire-like device normally located near the coils. First, check to see if there is any visible signs of damage or wear. If the thermistor looks damaged, it can easily be removed and replaced. 

Generally, most repairs to an AC unit will need professional help to ensure its proper care. With a the help of a licensed professional from A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, your AC unit will operate properly for years to come. If you need your air conditioner maintained or repaired, contact us today.

FAQ

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
