My AC’s Running, But Not Cooling?

ac not cooling

It’s getting hot outside, and the last thing you want is for it to get hot inside your home, too!

If your air conditioner is running constantly but not keeping you cool, it’s time to take action. Let’s figure out the potential causes and solutions to this frustrating AC issue …

Check your thermostat

One reason your AC might be running constantly without cooling your home could be that your thermostat needs to be set correctly. Make sure your thermostat is set to “cool” and that the fan is set to “auto” instead of “on.” If the fan is set to “on,” it might just be blowing warm air around your house, which is not what you want on a hot Michigan summer day.

Change your air filter

A dirty air filter or a clogged air conditioning unit could also be why your AC isn’t working well. When air filters get clogged, they reduce airflow and make your system work less efficiently. This can cause problems when it’s hot outside, and your AC is already working hard.

Change your air filters often or sign up for a maintenance plan to keep your unit clean and working its best. It’s also a good idea to check your outdoor AC unit for any dirt or debris blocking the vents.

While you can handle thermostat settings and dirty air filters on your own, there might be other reasons your AC is running without cooling your home well. Trust the experts at Sun Heating & Cooling to repair common issues problems like refrigerant leaks, clogs in your unit, a frozen coil, a damaged fan, or a faulty compressor.
