In Florida temperatures may still be cool right now, but just around the corner scorching summer heat is waiting to pounce! That is why with proper yearly maintenance your HVAC unit should not incur major problems. But as we all know not every AC incident is 100% preventable. The number one reported customer problem is that their HVAC unit is turning on but is not cooling their home properly. If this is your scenario, don’t panic just yet. Take a look below and read some of the common reasons your unit might not be working as well as you expect.
Check the Thermostat
It sounds a bit silly and simple, but check to see if someone in your home might have fooled with your thermostat. It’s always best to double check. Someone in your family may have reset your thermostat to another temperature because of their own cooling likes and dislikes. Also, be sure that the unit is correctly displaying the temperature and that the unit is set to “on” mode. You could just have the fan running without the thermostat being set to “cool.” Easy and fixable scenario.
Your air ducts are fundamental to the proper functioning of your HVAC system. If ductwork becomes split or twisted, your cool air may be leaking through the ductwork. This could exist also if your ductwork was designed or installed improperly to begin with. While you will need a trained professional to inspect and rectify this, it is a fixable problem.
Since your condenser unit is located outside, it can get blocked by debris such as trash, leaves, mulch, bushes and other things. When blocked, the condenser doesn’t receive enough air to release heat from the condenser coils. If this happens, the unit will shut on and off repeatedly, which is called short-cycling.
