With the official arrival of summer, apart from the holiday season, the heat also begins and among the many options or alternatives that exist to combat it, one of the most prominent is the use of air conditioning. But what happens if we suddenly realize that it is not cooling? Today we give you the keys to understand what is happening and what we can do to solve it.
During the next few months, the air conditioning will be like an oasis in the middle of the desert ready to save us from the heat, but it may happen that when you turn it on it does not work properly and does not cool, something that can be due to various reasons.
Air conditioners have several filters that are responsible for transporting the air. If you suddenly notice that your equipment has lost power or efficiency they may be too dirty and block the cold air. To solve it, we must take out these filters and clean them as indicated by the manufacturer or in the event that they are very worn, replace them with others.
Gas leak in the circuit
In case you have had to refill the gas of your air conditioning it is quite possible that you have a leak in the circuit since this is a non-consumable product. To fix this problem, it is better contact a technician specialist who knows where to look for the leak and fix it.
Outdoor unit failure
Perhaps the cooling problem is not due to the air conditioning itself, but to the device that is located outside your home. To make sure that everything is fine, it is important that you check that the unit is not clogged, it is clean and that the flow it collects is correct.
Problems with the compressor or condenser
Again, the problem does not have to be in the device itself, but in outdoor unitboth the compressor and the air condenser are there, in this case it is best to call a technician.
Problems with the temperature probe
It can also happen that it is a matter of the probe that sends the information about the temperature at which you want the room, in the event that a problem occurs, it is possible that is sending the wrong information to the air conditioner and that is why it is not cooling as we want.
