Possible Reasons Why Your Air Conditioner is Not Cooling Properly

Possible Reasons Why Your Air Conditioner is Not Cooling Properly

The air conditioner not being cool enough is a very common problem. This is a big deal, especially since it keeps us cool and comfortable on a sweltering Broomfield, Colorado summer afternoon. Here are some of the possible reasons why your Broomfield air conditioner is not cooling properly.

Needs cleaning and servicing

To keep your Broomfield unit working properly, it is important to have your Broomfield HVAC system cleaned and inspected by a trained technician at least once a year. Your air conditioner won’t work well if it’s in ill repair. By keeping your Broomfield AC in top shape, it will be able to cool your room effectively, save energy, and save money at the same time.

Clogged air filter

Check your air filter. Is it clogged or dirty? Clogged or dirty air filters will completely block airflow. Sometimes, ice forms inside the cooling unit, which restricts normal airflow. Check and replace your air filters every month especially if you have pets or you smoke inside the house. Otherwise, change them whenever needed.

Broken thermostat

Check the thermostat and make sure that the AC is set to cool. This may seem obvious, but there are occasions that this is exactly the problem. If you have it set to cool and it still doesn’t work, the thermostat may be defective. Call a Broomfield HVAC technician to have it fixed.

Incorrect size

If you have installed a small air conditioning unit in a large room, then don’t expect it to cool your room properly. Most homeowners make the mistake of buying an air conditioner based on their budget, not on the room size. As a result, the AC unit has to work hard in order to achieve the desired temperature. Make sure you get the correct AC size when buying an air conditioner.
