AC issues are more likely to be caused by clogged filters. Dirt, pet hair, pollen and dust can cause filters to malfunction. The flow of air in your AC is restricted when the filters are not working. The indoor air isn’t cool enough by the AC.

Why is my air conditioner running but not cooling the house?
If the air conditioner is running, but not lowering the temperature inside, it could be a problem with the coil. The outdoor unit has a fan that draws air into it through a coil.
What to check if AC is not cooling?
If your air conditioner won’t turn on and your thermostat isn’t set right, you may have a dirty or blocked air conditioning unit. The first thing you need to do is check the outside unit to make sure there are no obstructions.
Should I turn off my AC if it is not cooling?
If your air conditioner isn’t cooling and you suspect a leak, you should shut it down and call us immediately.
Why is my AC blowing warm air?
If the air conditioner is blowing out warm air, it might have low levels of refrigerants. This is usually a sign of a leak in the system. If that is the case, your air conditioner will keep running and blowing out warm air in order to get the temperature you set on your thermostat up.
Can I add Freon to my AC unit myself?
Adding refrigerant to your air conditioner on your own is not allowed. Air conditioners can either be factory charged with the right amount of refrigerant before being shipped out to retailers or they can be charged at the time of installation.
How do you tell if your condenser is clogged?
Even though you have the right amount of refrigerant in the system, there will be higher pressures if the condenser is not cleaned. There are higher pressures on both sides. There are leftover particles in the air and they can cause a problem.
How often should a home AC be recharged?
It will not happen. The central air conditioner doesn’t use up the refrigerant so you shouldn’t have to change it. If you have a leak, the only reason you’d need to change your A/C is to fix it.
How long does Freon last in AC?
The brand of refrigerant that lasts forever is fron. It’s not the same as gas in a car. The air conditioner’s refrigerant system is a closed/sealed system, meaning that it doesn’t allow for escapes.
