It Was a Dirty Condenser
I’ve been using my air conditioning more recently due to an unexpected heat wave.
I hate having to switch between my furnace and air conditioner, but I also don’t want to live in a house that’s too hot or too cold.
The other day, I noticed that my air conditioner was running, but it wasn’t actually cooling the air. I noticed that my thermostat was set properly and I felt the air coming out of all the air vents, but it was a lukewarm temperature. I did what anyone else would do in my situation, and I went online to try and figure out what was wrong with my air conditioner. I shouldn’t have done this, because I became really discouraged and overwhelmed. Everything I read was so negative! After reading about the possible causes, I decided that it was either a dirty air condenser or something more detrimental to my HVAC system. Since I’m not a professional HVAC technician, I had no idea which one was causing my air conditioner to malfunction, so I decided to call the local HVAC company. They asked me if my lack of air conditioning was considered an emergency, but I told them no. I wanted air conditioning, but I didn’t want to pay more money to have it fixed on an emergency call. Instead, I had to wait two days to have an HVAC professional come over. Thankfully, it was a dirty condenser, and I didn’t have to spend a fortune on anything more severe!
