Why Is My AC Running but Not Cooling?

If your air conditioner is running but not cooling, there could be several possible reasons for this issue:

  • Dirty air filters: Dirty or clogged air filters can restrict airflow, reducing the cooling capacity of your AC unit. Check the filters and clean or replace them if necessary.
  • Refrigerant leak: If there is a leak in the refrigerant lines, your AC may not be able to cool effectively. You'll need a professional HVAC technician to locate and repair the leak, and then recharge the refrigerant.
  • Faulty compressor: The compressor is responsible for circulating refrigerant through the system. If it's not functioning properly, your AC won't cool properly. This usually requires professional repair or replacement.
  • Blocked condenser unit: The condenser unit located outside your home can become blocked by debris such as leaves, dirt, or other obstructions. Clear any debris around the unit and ensure proper airflow.
  • Thermostat issues: Incorrect thermostat settings or a malfunctioning thermostat can prevent your AC from cooling properly. Make sure the thermostat is set to the cooling mode and at the desired temperature.
  • Electrical problems: Faulty wiring or electrical issues can also prevent your AC from cooling. Check for tripped breakers or blown fuses in your electrical panel.
  • Poor insulation or ductwork: If your home has poor insulation or leaky ductwork, cool air may escape before it reaches the living spaces, reducing the overall cooling efficiency.

If you've checked these common issues and your AC still isn't cooling properly, it's best to contact a professional HVAC technician to diagnose and repair the problem. Trying to troubleshoot complex issues without proper knowledge or equipment can potentially damage your AC unit further.

The Signs Your AC Needs Repair

It's important to be aware of the signs that an air conditioning system may need repair. Knowing these signs can help property owners get their repairs done with more efficiency, and get everyone back to feeling comfortable. 

  • Home not cooling properly - The most basic sign is when the system simply isn't cooling your home as well as it used to. If the temperature isn't what it should be, even when the thermostat is set correctly, then it’s well possible that something is wrong with the air conditioning system.
  • Strange noises coming from the unit - If there is loud banging, rattling, or grinding noises coming from the unit, then this could indicate an issue with one of its components. If left unchecked, the noise is not only annoying, but it can also be damaging the system further. 
  • Increase in energy bills - Higher energy bills that have no rational explanation can mean there are leaks in the ducts or other parts of the system. The consequence is the system using more energy than necessary to get to the thermostat’s desired temperature. 
  • Strange odors coming from the vents - These smells could indicate mold growth inside the ducts, or other parts of the system. This needs to be addressed quickly by a reliable and competent Tucson AC repair technician. 

The sooner repairs are undertaken, the better the chances are it can be done in a cost-effective manner, all while helping the home or office stay comfortable all year round.
