5 Reasons Your Air Conditioner Is Not Cooling

“There is no cooling” or “My AC is blowing out hot air”

These are two of the most common air conditioner complaints from people, especially during summers. No proper cooling does not mean it’s time to buy a new AC. This issue could possibly arise due to one of the below listed reasons…

No Proper Maintenance

To keep your air conditioner in a good working condition, it’s important that you switch on the AC for at least 15 minutes twice a week.t’s also important that you get a dry cleaning service done once every 3 months. Most brands offer the AMC (annual maintenance contract) service on air conditioners, which can be availed in the manufacturer’s warranty period. This helps in increasing the life and performance of the AC.

AMC includes dry servicing for air conditioners like: blower cleaning of the entire unit, washing of dust filters and cleaning of indoor and outdoor units with blower and brush.

Clogged Air Filter

The most common cause of window air conditioners not blowing cold air is a lack of adequate air flow. This will result in little or no cool air being circulated into the room. The air filter is normally located behind the front grille which may have a side access opening. Cleaning dirty filters is no rocket science but how many of us really get it cleaned from a professional?

Ice Formation on the Coils

If the air conditioner is not maintained with proper dry and wet servicing twice a year or if it’s not in use, the level of coolant in the AC can drop to less than the required amount. Once the coolant drops, the temperature of the cooling coil drops as well. Due to this the moisture in the room condenses on the coil and that leads to ice formation on the coils. This is another reason for lack of cooling. If you notice a constant bubbling noise and some ice formation on the outside unit, the cooling issue could be due to this reason.

Gas leakage

This is again a frequent problem with air conditioners and once there’s gas leakage, this issue arises every few months in spite of gas charging, which affects the cooling process. This is a more common problem for people located around coastal regions or anywhere close to sewage, where air pollution is high. Due to this, the copper and aluminum metals that are used to seal the AC gas get corroded and small holes are created in the metals from which the gas leaks.
