Q: Air conditioner not cooling as much.

asked by on

My air conditioner is not cooling as much. I had the AC hose replaced 3 months ago.

A: The AC hose you had replaced may be leaking...

The AC hose you had replaced may be leaking or the mechanic may of under or overcharged the AC system at the time of service. Another problem may of surfaced and it took three months to leak down to the point of AC not performing as it should. I recommend you have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come and look at the AC and diagnose it for you.
