This is usually a problem with a thermostat. You simply have to check if the thermostat is turned on and if the inside is clean. In addition, make sure that it is functioning on the correct settings and is not affected by sunlight. The thermostat should be set to cool and lower the temperature setting.

3. Refrigerant Leaks

If there are leaks in the refrigerant, the AC will not perform properly and the temperature will fluctuate.

AC Repair & Solution

Before adding more refrigerant, you should check for any leaks. It should also be examined yearly by a trained AC technician as fixing the leak can be costly.

4. Compressor

The function of the compressor is to apply energy to the refrigerant and propel it through the coils in order to carry out heat exchange. If the compressor fails to work, the AC will be unable to cool down your house.

A compressor that is not working properly indicates a burned wire, defective compressor or start capacitor. You can clean the condenser oil, check the capacitor, adjust your refrigerant charge and replace the compressor if necessary.

5. Condenser

The condenser is not running.
