It’s the first official day of summer! So the last thing you want to find out is that your AC isn’t cold. More often than not, the reason your AC is blowing warm air is not a complicated issue, but rather something that can be fixed in a few steps.
Reasons Your AC Isn’t Cold
Dirty Air Filter
The filters on your AC prevent dust and other particles from circulating through your home. If you don’t replace or clean them regularly, they’ll become clogged, and your unit won’t have proper air flow. This causes very little or no cold air to be pushed to the evaporator coils and, subsequently, your home.
Faulty Fan Motor
Your AC’s fan pulls cold air from over the evaporator coils and circulates it to your home. If the fan isn’t working properly, the air won’t be pulled from the coils, and they may become too cold or develop frost, restricting your unit’s air flow. An inspection of the fan will determine if it’s the reason your AC isn’t cold and the potential solution if it is.
Faulty Temperature Control
If your filter or fan motor is not the culprit, you may have a problem with your temperature control or thermostat. Beyond simply checking if your thermostat is set to the right temperature, check your sensing bulb. If it’s defective, it won’t send the power to your compressor, resulting in a lack of cool air flowing through your unit.
