One of the most repetitive phone calls we’re getting from clients starts with: “My AC is not cooling!”. Right after they say “It’s working but no cold air coming” in addition. AC units work differently in each home, so it’s hard to say without inspecting the unit what the AC repair might entail.
There are a few things you can check on your AC unit before calling for AC repair. One reason your AC might not be cooling as it used to is that the unit is dirty and needs to be cleaned. The coils and filters can get clogged with dirt and dust, which will prevent the AC from cooling properly. You can clean the coils and filters yourself or have a professional do it for you. You can think of the filter and coil of your air conditioning system as we have lungs so we can breath through.
Here Are Some Very Common Issues That May Cause You To Call Us And Ask: “Why My AC Is Not Cooling?”
First, check your circuit breaker box. Most likely it will be on the top right or left at the panel, they marked between 40A to 60A. If it is off or tripped, turn it off, wait few seconds and pull it back on.
A very common issue that can arise with AC systems is a dirty evaporator
coil. The evaporator coil is the part of the AC unit that actually
cools the air. If it is dirty, it will not be able to do its job
properly and the AC will not cool down your home.
If the AC coil ices over, it will not be able to cool the air. This can be caused by a number of things, such as a dirty coil, low refrigerant levels, or a problem with the AC unit itself. If you think the AC coil might be frozen, you should call a professional AC repairman to take a look at it.
Another common issue that can prevent your AC from cooling properly is a clogged air filter. The AC unit relies on the air filter to keep the dust and dirt out of the system. If the filter is clogged, the AC will not be able to function properly. You can clean the air filter yourself or have a professional do it for you.
If your AC is cycling on and off too frequently, it might be a sign that there is something wrong with the unit.

If you think your AC might be cycling on and off too frequently, you should call a professional AC repairman to take a look at it.
If your AC unit is leaking, it will not be able to cool your home properly. This can be caused by a number of things, such as a problem with the AC unit itself or a clogged drainage pipe.
