What Are Some Reasons for a Lack of Cool Air?
If your ductless AC fails to produce cold air, a technician will inspect the system to uncover the reason. Some of the most common reasons for a ductless air conditioner not blowing cold air include:
- A hot compressor
- Ice buildup on the condenser coil
- Low refrigerant levels
A Malfunctioning Compressor
A common problem that many homeowners with air conditioning problems notice is that their fan runs, but there is no cold air. Other issues related to the compressor include:
- Being hot to the touch
- Making a loud humming noise when starting up
- Not starting up consistently
Ice buildup could signal a problem with the fan. A non-functioning blower wheel could contribute to ice buildup. Another possible reason behind ice buildup is a control board or motor issue.
A unit might not start up reliably after it has had ice buildup. Sometimes, a hard start is necessary to get the unit to run. If there are any issues from difficulty starting due to ice buildup or a bad compressor, prompt care can help get everyone in your home feeling comfortable again.
