Why is my AC running but not cooling?

There are a wide variety of reasons that your AC may be running but not cooling.  Here are a couple of the most common ones.

Check that the thermostat is set correctly.  Make sure it is on cool and also that the temperature setting has not been moved.
A dirty air filter can block airflow and also reduce the cooling of your home.  Check the air filter out and make sure you have a clean one; therefore swap out if needed.
Your outdoor condenser unit could be blocked or also clogged.  A dirty coil can reduce efficiency and affect the amount of cool air coming from the registers.  Call a pro from Cheshire Heating and Air to have it cleaned.
Your evaporator coil is frozen.  This is a prevalent issue and should be handled by a pro.  A frozen coil will show signs of frost forming on the copper refrigerant line, inadequate cooling, higher utility bills, excessive condensate drain near the indoor unit, and ice on the outdoor condenser unit.
A refrigerant leak is another reason for your AC not to cool.  Without adequate refrigerant, your system will not blow cold air, will run more extended periods of time, and can also cause your compressor to be damaged or to shut down.
If you are experiencing any of these issues, give Cheshire Heating and Air a call and schedule a technician to come out and service your system.  You don’t want to be without air in the hot months.

Can you fix AC yourself?

As a homeowner, you can do a few things to make sure your Home Comfort System is operating efficiently.  Beyond these few, you should contact the professional at Cheshire Heating and air to address the issues.
You can check and also change the air filter regularly.  Doing so will ensure that your system runs efficiently and also that the air will pass through the filter easily.
If your thermostat has batteries in it, make sure that you change them out every couple of months.
Keep your condensate drain line clean and also clear.  Add ¼ cup of vinegar each month to the condensate drain pump.  The vinegar will kill any harmful bacteria or also buildup. It also makes sure your system will continue to operate.

If you have tried the above and your AC system is still causing you issues give us a call. We are here to help.
