Why is My Air Conditioner Not Cooling my Home?
The most common reasons your air conditioning system is not cooling:
- Clogged, dirty, or incorrect type of filter.
- Thermostat is not adjusted properly.
- Airflow to the condenser is restricted or blocked.
- Low refrigerant/coolant.
What to do when your HVAC air filter is wet?
Before you run your HVAC system again, you’ll definitely need to replace your filter. You’ll also want to confirm the cause of water.
Running your HVAC system while the filter is wet can spread moisture throughout your ductwork and home. This moisture, if left alone, can result in mildew and bacteria growth.
To provide you with clarity- the term “Freon” is commonly used to mean refrigerant. However, “Freon” is actually a brand name of refrigerant. There are different types of refrigerant, and your AC system needs a specific type.
How Do I Know if My AC Needs Freon/Refrigerant?
If your AC is not cooling your home, there could be a chance your system is low on refrigerant.
If you run your AC without the required amount of refrigerant, it can induce other problems.

Typically, when your central air conditioner is blowing hot air, it’s due to these three main reasons:
- Your thermostat may be set to “Heat” and not “Cool”
- Your HVAC fan is “On” and not “Auto”
- Your compressor (located outside of your home) is clogged, dirty, or has malfunctioned.
These problems can be easily fixed by setting your thermostat to “Cool,” ensuring your HVAC fan is set to “auto,” and reassure your compressor is not clogged or dirty.
