My Air Conditioning is Running but There’s No Cold Air

Friday, July 26th, 2013

A lot of different problems may develop with your air conditioning system. No matter what goes wrong, though, it is always important that you schedule professional repair services promptly. Even the most minor issues can lead to serious problems with your AC if you wait long enough to address them. One of the most common air conditioning problems that we encounter is an air conditioning system that will not blow cold air, despite the fact that the system is running. If you experience this issue, there are a number of potential causes. Whatever the root of the problem, the Rocky River, OH air conditioning repair technicians at Westland Heating and Air Conditioning have the solutions you need. Contact us today to learn more.

One common reason that many air conditioning units fail to produce cold air due to a low refrigerant charge. The refrigerant in your system acts as the heat transfer liquid, and if there is too little of it then the system can ice up and cause operational problems. If you notice the buildup of any ice on the refrigerant lines or the coils of your system, low refrigerant may be to blame. A professional air conditioning technician will have to evaluate your system, check for leaks, and recharge your refrigerant levels.

The reason that low refrigerant levels are such a serious issue, aside from the operational problems that they lead to, is the fact that your AC does not consume refrigerant in the way that your car does gasoline. If your refrigerant levels drop, it is most often the result of a leak in the system somewhere. This means that you cannot simply add refrigerant and expect your system to operate properly again.

It is also possible that your air filter is very dirty. Air filters must be cleaned off regularly to ensure that the proper amount of airflow is allowed for throughout the system. It is also possible, when air filters are very dirty, for dust and debris to build up on different components of your system. This can hinder the operation of your AC and may make the cooling cycle ineffective. If you need help locating and changing your air filter, just give us a call.

Never hesitate to contact a professional technician when it comes to problems with your air conditioning in Rocky River, OH. We are always happy to help you get the most efficient and effective performance possible from your air conditioning system. When you work with Westland Heating and Air Conditioning, you can count on the outstanding performance of your air conditioning system.
