Improperly maintained air conditioning systems can begin presenting issues that mean the system isn’t fit for purpose. In the height of summer, a malfunctioning air conditioning system is the last thing you want to deal with. In our latest blog post, we’ll be discussing some of the common reasons why your air conditioning system may stop blowing cold air.
Sometimes, the reason why your air conditioning system isn’t working properly isn’t to do with the system at all, rather the power supply that it is connected to. An air conditioning system can create a large surge of power which could have caused a blown fuse or a tripped breaker.
If you are sure that the sudden loss of power is not due to an electrical fault, then it could be a problem with your thermostat.
Check Your Thermostat
Another easy to spot fix to this problem is to double-check the temperature at which your thermostat is set to. Sometimes, switching the temperature is enough to jolt it into life again. Otherwise, you may try switching the system to the lowest temperature to see if it begins running.
If this happens regularly, there may be a bigger issue at play so be sure to keep on top of regular air con maintenance.
Blocked Filter or Drain
Some air conditioning systems have a built-in mechanism that will stop the system from working if the filter or drain becomes blocked, helping to prevent damage to the motor by stopping it from overheating.
If you are not receiving adequate airflow from your air conditioning system, this may be because of a blocked filter. The filter and draining system inside your air conditioning unit should be cleaned regularly and, if necessary, replaced.
