It’s never a good sign when your air conditioner starts to put out less cool air than it should be, especially during the hottest part of summer. If your air conditioner is losing efficiency, the first thing you want to do is to call for repairs. No matter what the problem is, it’s very likely that it’s going to need professional services in order to be fixed. However, it’s still a good idea to know what the problem with your air conditioner might be. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why your air conditioner output is dropping.
Air conditioners cool the air in a home by evaporating refrigerant and condensing it. One unit evaporates refrigerant to absorb thermal energy from the air in your home’s ducts. The other unit condenses the refrigerant gas back into liquid to release the collected heat out of the home. This cycle continues for as long as the system is operating. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line, it will drain the system of the fluid it needs to operate. This will cause the output of the system to drop. Call for repairs if you notice fluid dripping from your air conditioner.
Air Handler Problems
If your air conditioner is on, but doesn’t seem to be blowing any air, you may have a problem with your air handler. The air handler is the part of the air conditioner responsible for circulating air throughout the home during operation. If the air handler fails, either because of burnout or because of a short in the electrical system, the air conditioner won’t actually be able to circulate any air.
