If you notice that your air conditioner is not blowing cold air as strongly as it once did, you may have a blockage in the system. The most common reason for airflow problems is a dirty air filter. If you forget to change out the air filter in your air conditioner, it can get clogged with dust and dirt to the point that air cannot enter the system. Change out your air filter and see if you notice an improvement. If not, there may be an issue with your ductwork.

AC Won’t Turn On
Sometimes the problem is that your air conditioner simply will not turn on to cool your home. This could be any number of problems inside the system, but it could also be your thermostat that’s the issue. Your thermostat measures the temperature inside your home and signals for your air conditioner to turn on and off for cooling cycles. If the thermostat settings are incorrect or your thermostat is miscalibrated, your air conditioner may not turn on.
First, check your thermostat settings. Make sure that your thermostat is set to cool, and the temperature is on your desired setting. If all of the settings are correct, there’s a chance that something is wrong with your thermostat. It may be dirty inside or need new batteries. There’s also a chance that it needs to be reset or replaced completely. No matter what the problem is, our team can help you troubleshoot and get your thermostat and air conditioner working again.
High Humidity Levels
If it feels like the air in your home is too humid, your air conditioner could be to blame. If something is causing your AC to short cycle then it won’t stay on for a cooling cycle long enough to remove heat and humidity completely. Instead, heat and humidity get trapped in the lines and evaporate back into the air again. You may be tempted to find the root of the problem yourself, but leave this one to the professionals.
