The most common reason is low refrigerant. You need to have a HVAC company come out and check for leaks, and to recharge your system

How do you know when you need freon?

The only way to know if Freon (refrigerant) is needed in an air conditioner is to use tools and gauges to measure the performance of the system. The amount of refrigerant needed is based on the design of the entire system including the size of the unit, length and size of the refrigerant lines, temperatures, and type of refrigerant. Refrigerant is not consumed. If refrigerant is needed then the system was either not charged correctly when installed or there is a leak. There could be many reasons a system is not cooling. The correct answer to the question is: A skilled service technician will determined that the system was low on refrigerant by using pressure gauges, thermometers and other tools. There not function a home owner can perform to see if refrigerant is needed.

How do you know if you have a leak in the central air unit?

The system will not cool if it is low on refrigerant. Check the suction line and see if it feels cold and is sweating. The suction line is the larger of the 2 and is covered in black insulation. If it is not sweating or if it is warm to the touch, you are probably low on refrigerant. If you have to have refrigerant added more than once, it's a sure bet there is a leak in the system.j3h.
