5 Reasons Your Air Conditioner is Not Cooling
A not cooling air conditioner can be a big problem if you live in a tropical country like Indonesia. Don't panic. Here are the five most common causes of not cooling AC and how to solve it.
1. Unmaintained outdoor unit
Your outdoor unit needs more maintenance since it gets all the exposure of sunlight, rain, and debris. If your AC is not cooling as it was, you can try to check the outdoor unit. Make sure it has a good airflow by removing the weeds and grass or anything that blocks the airflow. If there is still a problem, the chance is the unit unable to release heat because of the pile of debris. You can clean it yourself or call a technician.
2. Unfitted unit
If your recently installed AC unit did not work properly, probably it is too small or too big for your room. So instead of choosing the most sophisticated unit on the market, try to learn more about your room: the number of windows, the amount of sunlight it gets, and so on.
3. Clogged filter
When the air cannot flow in and out properly from your AC unit, the air will not be as cooling. So if your AC is getting warmer, you probably need to take care of the airflow. One of the ways is to make sure the air filter is clean. If you find it clogged with debris, clean it with a brush.
4. Low on refrigerant
A popular cause behind an AC that is not cooling is the deficiency of refrigerant or Freon. When refrigerant circulates together with the air, your room will be filled with cool air. If your unit becomes low on the Freon, the air that blows into your room will not be as cooling as before. If it is the case, you can call a technician to refill your refrigerant.
5. The broken thermistor on the outdoor unit
Your AC works by reaching the temperature you have set with the remote. After you set a number with the remote, the thermistor sends a signal that operates the units to cool your room. If the thermistor is broken, no signal is sent and the temperature of your room will not change. It this happens, reach out to the AC technician to get the thermistor fixed.
