Q: Air conditioner no longer gets cold

asked by on

The air conditioner no longer gets cool.

There are many mechanical and electrical components to consider when the air conditioner has stopped working. Fuses and relays power the system, and often cause a simple fault. Other situations, such as a low refrigerant charge or malfunctioning compressor, can stop the cooling effect we enjoy from the air conditioner. Have an experienced technician inspect the entire AC system, test the electronics, and check the system pressures. All should be taken into consideration to locate the one or many problems, and repair the fault properly. Consider YourMechanic as our team of experts don’t mind coming to you.
