Summers are just around the corner, so it is wise to give your cooling appliance a quick check before the scorching sun starts to fade you. So you went to check your air conditioner but found out that it is not blowing? What might have gone wrong during those freezing winter nights?
Here are the top 5 reasons for an air conditioner not blowing.
- Power Issues
This cause of your AC not blowing could be a very simple one that you can solve yourself with no or little cost. Firstly make sure that your air conditioner is plugged incorrectly, and the circuit breakers are not tripped. Another power issue could be caused by a power outage that may have altered the clock or timed setting on your thermostat.
- Thermostat Setting
It may seem ignorable, but sometimes a change in thermostat setting can stop your air conditioner from blowing. It is possible that someone may have increased the temperature. Another possibility is a faulty thermostat that you now need to repair or replace.
- Clogged Air Filters
One of the most common issues that prevent the air conditioner from blowing is clogged air filters that makes it difficult for the air to pass through, and your unit will be forced to work longer and harder.
- Condenser Unit
A dirty condenser unit can also prevent the air conditioner from blowing. Make sure the condenser is clean; otherwise, it will have difficulty in accessing the air leading to system overheating. The condenser unit uses high power electricity and contains harmful chemicals; therefore, leave the task of cleaning it to HVAC professionals.
- Blocked Vents and Registers
If you have changed the setting of your furniture, it is possible that the new setting may have blocked the vents or registers.
