Why does your home central air conditioner run but not blow cold air?
do you have your a/c set to fan? not a/c? otherwise you might need to contact your local a/c repair man and e will tell you you need a charge of freon in your system.
Why not to start checking the simple points like the filter, duct mechanism, etc.
Not so simple to give a "One Size Fits All" answer for but here are a few things to check.
1) when the system is running does the outside unit kick on? That is the condensing unit and supports the compressor which ultimately provides the cooling to the coil in the unit inside.
2) is the air filter dirty or do you have low air flow if so check the lines at the outside unit see if they're frosting or icing up. If they are try the air filter but if that still doesn't solve the problem call for service a low freon charge will cause icing.
3) if you have low flow but a clean filter check the "MERV" rating on the filter a merv 6-8 should be sufficient for most applications except cigarette smoke. The lower the merv # the less the resistance to air flow the larger the particle rating that it will filter in microns.
4) There are other components which can require servicing but they are normally handled by your service person unless you are familiar with HVAC repair. Have a Great day.
Central home air conditioner continues to lose freon and requires charging every 2 weeks or so. It has continued for 2 years. Why does a central home air conditioner continue to lose freon?
A central air conditioner is different from a window or wall unit in that it cools the whole house or business. The most common reason for ice to be forming on the air conditioner is that the filters are clogged. In an air conditioner for your home, the filter is the same one as the burner for your heat. I change mine on the 1st of the month. Twelve filters cost about $.50 each so…
For automobiles there are many but the two major ones are R-12 and R134a.. For the home there are various types of air conditioners like window air conditioner, split air conditioner, packaged air conditioner and central air conditioning system..... Most home systems use R-22 refrigerant but R-410a is also an increasingly used refrigerant known as PURON...................
A split system air conditioner is a central air conditioning system that is "split" into two components: the air conditioner that sits outside of your home and an indoor component to move the air through duct work, such as a furnace and coil. A window unit only cools the single room it is installed in. It does not move air through ducts like a split system does. It will be more expensive to run a…
Central air conditioners should always be set to a comfort level. The most comfortable setting is 78 degrees. Any colder would make any room feel like it's freezing and air conditioners are not for that purpose. Keeping a room too cold will cause sickness in many humans who already suffer from bronchitis or many colds. Unlike heating a home/apartment, the normal setting would be 70 degrees to keep the home/apartment warm and comfortable. Please remember…
I assume that the smoke you experience hasn't burned your house down yet. The vapor that appears about 12" from the a/c is cold air from the air conditioner meeting the warm air in the room it is cooling, and the cold condenses water vapor out of the hot air, just like a cloud. So it may be steam you're seeing -- not smoke. It should go away after the room cools down a little…
What would be wrong if your air conditioner works well but doesn't shut off and will run until it freezes up?
We have not been in our home which is only 4yrs old for a year yet and the air conditioner unit quit working Should our homeowners insurance cover this since it's been less than a year?
Actually, this should fall under warranty work, either the warranty of the unit (the air conditioner) or the home warranty (if you received one from the builder/seller. Check the paperwork you received with the unit, if it is central air, this may be attached to the main furnace unit. Check also your purchase agreement for the home.
