Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
Why Is My Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air? The weather is finally warm and you go to turn your air conditioner on and nothing but warm air comes out. What gives? There are several things that may cause your air conditioner to not blow cold air.  Dirty Filters The first thing to check would be your air filters. One of the most common causes for air conditioners not blowing cold air is dirty filters. If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air flow is restricted and your air conditioner will not be able to properly cool your home. Sometimes, something as simple as changing the filter will fix this issue.   Broken Parts Sometimes, this issue may be due to a broken part or parts on your condensor unit. One of the more costly fixes could be a failed compressor. If your compressor has failed, the refrigerant inside of the lines will not be able to move properly through the system. Although this is not an overly common issue unless your unit is very old, this is something that a professional HVAC company would have to come out and diagnose.   Electrical Malfunction Electrical problems can also cause your air conditioner to not blow cold air. Failed sensors, faulty thermostats and even broken wires can be to blame.

What Does The Phase Out of R-22 Mean?

R-22 To Be Phased Out Completely By 2020 Columbus, Ohio - It's time for change once again! According to the EPA, R22 is due to be phased out completely by the year 2020. Why you ask? Good question! Back in 1987, the Montreal Protocol was signed by several different countries to begin phasing out what are called "ozone depleting substances" (in essence, chemicals that will continue to eat away at our atmosphere here on earth). The good old USA is just one of 190 countries that are putting a stop to the manufacturing and distribution of R-22. Surprisingly, R-22 has not been manufactured or imported into the USA since January 1, 2010. We are running on leftovers! As of January 1, 2015, the manufacturing and sale of R-22 air conditioners was banned. Finally, as of January 1, 2020, will be completely phased out, not available for purchase or use by anyone anymore. What the R-22 Phase Out Means For You! Most importantly, the cost of R-22 related repairs has begun to skyrocket based on the very little quantities that are left to be able to use. If you still own a heat pump or air conditioner that uses R-22, don't be surprised to spend at minimum $500 or more for a simple "gas and go" so to speak. It is important to note that air conditioners and heat pumps are closed unit systems, so if you need R-22 added, you have a leak somewhere in the system, and leaks can only...
