Q: No cold air from air conditioner

asked by on

The air conditioner is not blowing cold air.

The air conditioning system is charged with refrigerant and a specific amount is needed for the system to operate. The compressor is the component that cycles the refrigerant through the system. However, electrical and mechanical failures are possible on the compressor as well. An air conditioning inspection should be performed on the system to ensure that there aren’t any leaks allowing refrigerant to leak out. All of these factors or more can be the cause of the air not to being cold.
