AC-Not-Cooling

Why is My Air Conditioner Not Cooling my Home?

The most common reasons your air conditioning system is not cooling:

  1. Clogged, dirty, or incorrect type of filter.
  2. Thermostat is not adjusted properly.
  3. Air flow to the condenser is restricted or blocked.
  4. Low refrigerant/coolant.
  5. Ductwork connection has dislocated.
  6. Fuse or electrical connection has malfunctioned.
  7. Dirt accumulation at the condenser.
  8. Undersized HVAC system.
  9. Thermostat is broken.
  10. Compressor is failing.

AC Not Cooling House Troubleshooting Guide

When your air conditioning system isn’t cooling, pinpointing the cause is a process of elimination.

Let’s start at your thermostat…

Check the settings on your thermostat. Does your thermostat have power? Is is set to cool? If there is no power to the thermostat, your AC will not work.  Ensure the setting is set to “cool” and not “heat.”

Then, head over to your filter…

Your-HVAC-Filter-should-be-changed-every-3-months
  • If your filter is clogged it will restrict airflow.  If the incorrect filter is placed, it can also restrict or block airflow.  Do you have a HEPA filter?  Some older HVAC systems struggle to pull enough air through a HEPA filter. If you have an older HVAC system and you have a thick HEPA filter, try changing the filter to a filter with a lower MERV rating.  Changing your filter is simple. Your HVAC filter should be changed every three months.Inspect Your Condenser (located outside, square shaped component)Your condenser should be free from dirt.  Additionally, the area around your condenser should be clear and clean.  If you have shrubs growing around the unit, it could be restricting air flow.If there is dirt and debris buildup around your condenser, you can simply clean it with a hose.  Use a low pressure stream of water to wash off your condenser.

    .

The-area-around-your-condenser-should-be-clean-and-free-of-shrubs
  • Many residential properties will have what’s called – a packaged HVAC system.  This is where your system is located on the roof.  If your AC is located on the roof, you will not have a condenser located in your yard.

    If Your Air Conditioning System is Still Not Cooling, It’s possible one of these issues exist.

    1. Your AC system is low on refrigerant.
    2. A section of your ductwork connection dislocated.
    3. A fuse or an electrical connection has malfunctioned.
    4. If your HVAC is new, you may have an undersized HVAC system.
    5. Your compressor could be failing.

    If one of these above issues exist, it’s best to call a licensed, qualified AC repair company to come onsite and diagnose your problem.

Trane-HVAC-System-Cost-Reviews

Trane HVAC System Cost

When shopping for new central air equipment, understandably, price is at the forefront of your shopping initiative.

Because HVAC systems are not “plug and play,” calculating costs for these types of installations can vary greatly between units and the property they are being assembled in.

Before going over costs it’s important we mention- the most important decision you can make before purchasing your new HVAC unit, is choosing the right contractor.  Why Choose a Trane Comfort Specialist

Statistics have shown, about 25% of the money we spend in heating and cooling utility costs are due to inefficiencies in the way the HVAC system was installed.

The performance and longevity of your system will rely to a considerable degree on how the HVAC installer chooses to construct your system.

With that in mind, here are some typical prices for Trane units.

Trane HVAC System Average Price
Trane XV20i $6,000 to $11,746
Trane XL20i $4,561 to $10,325
Trane XL19i $4,300 to $9,890
Trane XV18 $4,327 to $9,511
Trane XL18i $4,000 to $9,000
Trane XR17 $3,850 to $8,817
Trane XL16i $3,797 to $8,625
Trane XR16 or XB16 $3,692 to $8,564
Trane XR15 $3,485 to $8,419
Trane XL15i $3,390 to $8,340
Trane XR14 $3,168 to $8,291
Trane XL14i $3,099 to $8,187
Trane XR13 $3,060 to $7,234
Trane XB13 $2,955 to $6,250

Trane HVAC System Reviews 2018

According to a recent study by AdWeek, statistics show that 81% of consumers conduct online research before making a major purchase.  Stats also show that 60% of consumers will read product reviews online before choosing their product.=

When searching for reviews on HVAC systems, you will likely see more negative reviews than positive ones.  In fact, Consumer Reports shows Trane as having a 1 out of 5 star review.

But here’s the problem with these reviews from Consumer Reports…

If you had a central air conditioner installed and it worked perfectly after installation, would you go online and write a positive review on the manufacturer or the HVAC installer?

Presumably, like most people, you would  write the positive review on the HVAC installer, not the system manufacturer.

However…

If your system failed prematurely, you would most likely blame the manufacturer of the equipment, not the HVAC installer.

In this circumstance,  you would immediately go online and express your negative experience with your central air equipment and use the brand name as the culpable party.

What most consumers don’t understand, is that premature failure of your HVAC equipment is predominantly induced by the installing contractor.

If your equipment fails 2 years after installation, it’s probably the contractor’s fault, not the HVAC brand name.

Do you see why Consumer Reports can have a very skewed and oblique review on HVAC manufacturers?

Here at Corman & Sons, we install any make and model HVAC system.  However, we get asked often…

“Which is the best HVAC system to go with?”

Although each answer can vary based on unique situations, we more than often recommend Trane.

Why does Corman and Sons recommend Trane?

After being in the HVAC industry for multiple decades, our experience servicing and installing Trane equipment, has been nothing short of remarkable.  Not only do we see these systems outlast others,  they have longevity, durability, and unique warranties.

We also experience first-hand how Trane stays on the cutting edge of technology to ensure each new unit runs at peak performance.

Additionally, Trane provides unparalleled support to their dealers and installers.  When parts, accessories, or warranty replacements are needed, Trane has always delivered the best overall service to their dealers.

Trane HVAC System Ratings 2018

Trane makes a variety of residential HVAC products.  You can view them all by visiting here: Trane Residential Products.

ConsumerReports.org had a large owner survey regarding the owner satisfaction with Trane. When it came to reliability, Trane had above average feedback from owners and HVAC experts.

Why does Trane have above average ratings?

A unique, and critical part of Trane’s longevity is their testing.  Trane uses a performance factory to run their equipment in extreme heat, extreme cold, rain, and snow to ensure under harsh conditions the HVAC systems still work as intended.

Other Unique Features from Trane:

Spine-Fin Coils: Trane makes their coils out of aluminum.  Which is 5 times more resistant to corrosion than coils made of copper.  The design of the coil fosters more efficient heat transfer.

Variable Speed Cooling: Better humidity control, improved indoor air-quality, and quieter when operating are all features of Trane’s variable speed cooling abilities.

Proprietary Compressor:  Instead of outsourcing the fabrication of it’s compressor, like nearly 80% of other companies, Trane makes it’s own compressor. This allows the system to work better and operate at optimum levels.

Exclusive Air Scrubbing System:  Improved indoor air quality derives right inside the unit.  Trane Clean Effects  is a whole house air cleaner that is 100 times more effective than a standard air filter.

INTERESTED IN RECEIVING AN ESTIMATE FOR A NEW HVAC SYSTEM?

Remember, the most important part isn’t the brand name you choose, but the contractor your hire to install it.

HVAC systems don’t snap together and plug in.  When your contractor purchases the HVAC, it is in pieces and is uncalibrated.

Your HVAC installer really is the person at the end of the manufacturing line.

drain-line-clogging-and-overflowing-onto-the-filter

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.

How to Clear a Clogged HVAC Condensation Drain?

If you can find the end of the drain, the simplest way is through the use of a shop-vac.

  1. Locate the end of the condensation drain.
  2. Utilizing a shop-vac, attach the hose to the condensate drain and seal the connection with tape, or a towel to create an air-tight connection.
  3. Turn the shop-vac on to attempt sucking out the debris from the drain.

If you’d like video instructions on how to achieve this, you can watch this brief YouTube video here: Unclog AC Condensation Drain Line

Know-if-My-AC-Needs-Freon-Refrigerant

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.

If you suspect your HVAC system is low on freon/refrigerant, call us at 352-343-8578.  If you explain what you are experiencing with your system, we can elaborate on the required steps to get your equipment operating again.

How Much Freon/Refrigerant Does My AC Need?

This depends on your specific AC system.  Your HVAC equipment will come with a label that provides these specific details.  The size of your air conditioner, the length of the copper refrigerant lines, the SEER rating, and the model of your system are variables that need to be considered, prior to knowing how much refrigerant your AC will need.

How Often Does My Air Conditioner Need Freon/Refrigerant?

As long as your system is leak free, your HVAC should not require freon/refrigerant.

Here is the reason why…

The refrigerant inside your AC is contained, and flows only through a sealed, closed loop set of coils. This freon just circulates through your closed system to help cool the air.  Refrigerant is not designed to be used up like fuel inside of a vehicle.  As long as your system does not have a leak, you should never need a freon charge.

If you are experiencing a situation where your HVAC is running but not cooling, you may have a refrigerant leak.

AC not cooling? Common causes, fixes, and troubleshooting guide. 

Would you like an HVAC specialist to evaluate your system for low refrigerant?  We can help.

How Can I Tell if I My AC Is Leaking Refrigerant?

Without an appropriate pressure test, it would be challenging to confirm a refrigerant leak in your system.

However, the most common signs of refrigerant leaks are…

  1. Your AC is not cooling the home.
  2. Visible ice buildup on your evaporator coils
  3. Your AC system makes a “hissing” sound while running.
  4. The AC seems to run longer than normal.
  5. Recently higher utility bills.
  6. Heat blows out of your ducts instead of cool air.

If your HVAC system is having an issue and you would like to hire professional help, then we are the company to count on.

why_is_one_room_so_hot

Typically, when your central air conditioner is blowing hot air, it’s due to these three main reasons:

  1. Your thermostat may be set to “Heat” and not “Cool”
  2. Your HVAC fan is “On” and not “Auto”
  3. 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.

If you confirmed none of the above components are your issue- Why else would your home’s air conditioner be blowing warm air?

  1. Your compressor may have broken down.
  2. Your HVAC filter could be dirty or needs replacement.
  3. Tripped electrical breaker
  4. Insufficient quantity of freon/refrigerant.

If your compressor seems to be running, and you’ve checked all other aspects of your system, your HVAC unit may be leaking refrigerant.

ac-needs-refrigerant

Finding a refrigerant leak is extremely difficult unless you have specialized HVAC equipment to detect a leak in your refrigerant lines.

Refrigerant leak detection is best left to a licensed HVAC company.

why_is_one_room_so_hot

WHY IS ONE ROOM IN MY HOUSE HOTTER THAN THE OTHERS?

If one room in your home is more warm than the others, and you’ve already checked for closed duct vents, you may have an unbalanced HVAC system.

An unbalanced air conditioning system means that each room in your home is not getting an equal amount of conditioned air flow.

Unbalanced HVAC systems can be induced by inadequate installations or a flaw in the design and construction of your HVAC install.

COMMON PROBLEMS OF AN UNBALANCED HVAC SYSTEM:

  • Insufficient quantity (or too many) vents in each room.
  • Poorly insulated ductwork.
  • Ductwork length too great and limits air flow.
  • Ductwork design flaw.
  • Undersized or oversized HVAC
  • If your home had an addition or renovation you were unaware of before you came into possession.
    Incorrect quantity of necessary vents.

An unbalanced HVAC system is not generally something that can be fixed by the average DIY person.

HOW DO YOU BALANCE AN HVAC SYSTEM?

Ensuring that all the air being distributed through your ductwork has an equal flow is the process of “balancing.”

First, an HVAC inspection needs to be completed. Then, a proper load calculation and air flow test is conducted to help zero in on the root cause. Finally, a plan for remedying can then be executed.

ac_assessment_broken_air_conditioner

WHY SHOULD I BALANCE MY HVAC UNIT?

  • Extends the life of your air conditioner
  • Eliminates unequal hot and cold rooms
  • Increases energy efficiency and can lower your utility bills.

WHY IS MY AC BUZZING/HUMMING? 5 REASONS YOUR AC IS HUMMING/BUZZING.

Several different problems can induce a buzzing/humming noise in your HVAC system.

The most common issues are:

  1. Failing Capacitor: A humming noise is common when the capacitor starts to break down.
  2. Malfunctioning Compressor: Incorrect amperage can trigger a loud buzzing sound.
  3. Loose Parts inside the HVAC: Your system has moving parts that need to work in sync. If a part becomes detached, noises occur.
  4. Refrigerant Leaks: Freon leaks may cause your system to freeze up. As a result, a buzzing sound may happen.
ac_problems_how_do_i_know_if_my_ac_needs_refrigerant

5. Fan Motor Seized:: When the fan is jammed or stuck, it creates a humming/buzzing sound as it’s trying to spin.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY AC IS HUMMING/BUZZING?

It’s best to stop running your HVAC system and contact an HVAC professional to evaluate and diagnose the cause of noise.  Even if your AC is cooling the home while the noise occurs, it could be a sign of a more serious issue.
