Why My Air Conditioner Is Not Cooling: Possible Reasons

Are you noticing problems with your air conditioner time and again? Is it that your AC turns on but doesn’t blow cold air? Well, this is something that needs to be attended at the earliest. It could be a matter of emergency if this happens during hot summers in Brisbane. Before you hire air conditioner repairing services in Brisbane, look at the possible causes of the situation stated here.

Check thermostat setting

If you notice the flan moving but no cold air coming out from the system, you should check if the thermostat is “on” or in “auto” mode. If set “on”, it indicates the fan keeps blowing all the time also when the AC isn’t cooling the room.

This allows the air to circulate all around your house which makes people think the air conditioner is blowing warm air and even uses more energy. If this happens to you, change the setting to “auto” mode.  

Keep a check on your condenser

Not just your air filter but your condenser unit also needs to be clean to allow the AC cool your home properly. If the condenser coils accumulate a thick layer of dust over it, the cooling process is slowed down subsequently. To ensure smoother efficiency of your air conditioner, it is important to clean the condenser at once a year.

If not dust, it might be weeds and bushes contaminating your condenser unit, restricting airflow. If you find the outside unit extremely dirty, it is high time you should call your AC expert for servicing. If there’s any other issue with the condenser unit, reach out an appliance repair company for air conditioner repairing services in Brisbane.

Change the air filter

The air filter in your AC system is meant to keep the air clean and fresh by restricting dirt particles and debris. However, if the filter is not cleaned and left in there for long, it will block air flow eventually, stopping the Ac from cooling your home.

Even the high-efficiency air filters fail the test of time. It is specially designed to clear away air borne particles from the system but after a given period of time, it prevents air flow to your air conditioning system same as the air filter does. It also results in condenser to freeze affecting the cooling capacity of the AC.

Additional problems

Apart from these, there are some other possible problems probably causing your Ac cool slower and turn the performance inefficient. If the problem still persists, it could be:

  • Low refrigerant leak/refrigerant charge
  • Bad compressor
  • Broken or faulty condenser
