Why Is My Air Conditioner Not Cooling My Home?

Why Is My Air Conditioner Not Cooling My Home?

As the summer months approach, issues with air conditioners become more common. Long winters and improper care can lead to sub-par cooling and higher energy bills. If your house is warm despite the air conditioner running, you may be in need of professional help.

Most commonly, air conditioners are not cooling properly because they are lacking air flow. Leaves, dust, and other particulates can clog the evaporator coils and cause issues with cooling. While you can clean and replace the filter, it is best to contact A-Plus Quality for HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area to properly restore the unit to working condition. 

Another common issue is damage to the fan or fan motor. The fan is responsible for moving the air across the evaporator coils, and if it is running too slow it can form ice buildup. A buildup of ice can damage the motor or cause it to partially lose its power from the supply. The best option is to contact A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, if you believe your motor is damaged as a certified technician will need to assess the flow of electricity.

The last common issue is damage to the thermistor. This component measures the temperature of incoming air and signals the main control unit to power on or off. If it is damaged or becomes defective, it will not properly turn on the circuits when the correct temperature is reached. The thermistor is a wire-like device normally located near the coils. First, check to see if there is any visible signs of damage or wear. If the thermistor looks damaged, it can easily be removed and replaced. 

Generally, most repairs to an AC unit will need professional help to ensure its proper care. With a the help of a licensed professional from A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, your AC unit will operate properly for years to come. If you need your air conditioner maintained or repaired, contact us today.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

  • The boiler at our church died in January 2021 and we urgently needed a replacement. A Plus Quality responded right away. Despite the pandemic they managed to order all required parts and install them in about a week (it was a big job). The team was really professional and the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend A Plus Quality.

FAQ

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337
