Most customers think they can diagnose their air conditioners on their own when there’s a problem. While we encourage curious customers who enjoy learning about the technology, this is simply not the case. There’s no video guide or tutorial that’s good enough to accurately diagnose an AC problem the same way a professional would.
A professional HVAC technician undergoes a lot of training and experience every year, which is why we can diagnose a problem faster and more accurately than our customers can. But that doesn’t mean you have to ignore problems when they come up.
Today, we’d like to talk about some AC problems. More specifically, we want to talk about when your AC has no cool air coming from it. This is a big problem and it can point to a number of different issues that will require AC repair in Muncie.
The System Blows Air, But It’s Warm
If your air conditioner is blowing air, but it’s warm, then you might have an issue with the refrigerant or compressor of the system. These are the components that turn the air cold, and then your blower fan sends the air through your air ducts where you can feel it.
It sounds like the blower fan is working just fine and has access to clean air, so the AC could be suffering from a potential refrigerant leak or some other kind of problem. This is a good reason to call for professional support.
No Air at All
If your air conditioner isn’t blowing any air through the vents, then you could have two common problems.
- Start by changing out the air filter. This component can sometimes get clogged and inhibit the flow of air throughout the system. Once it’s cleaned out, start your AC back up and see if that makes a difference. If so, then congratulations!
- If cleaning the air filter doesn’t help, or your AC is making some strange noises, then you might have a problem with the blower fan. This component is designed to propel the conditioned air throughout your air ducts. If it stops working, or if it has problems with its motor, then it might cease functioning altogether. All that cool air then gets stuck in your AC.
For quick and easy diagnosis, we can get the job done.
Call for Repairs ASAP
Regardless of what your AC problem might be, you don’t want to try to fix anything on your own. Even a simple blower motor problem requires experience and technical precision to be able to perform without breaking or ruining any other components. Since your AC is such an expensive investment, trying to repair anything on your own would simply be a bad idea.
We urge customers to call our team and schedule an appointment, even if you think the problem is an easy one to solve. In that case, the cost will likely be low and we’ll be in and out of your house in record time!
