Why Can’t I Feel Cold Air Coming Through My Vents?

Warm weather is already here, and it’s here to stay. Well, for the summer anyway. As such, Texas residents should take the time to examine their air conditioners closely as they run, to check for any potential problems. If something comes up, then you have time to schedule repairs at leisure, which means you’ll have an AC system that’s ready to go at the peak of summer.

One of the most common problems homeowners run into at the beginning of the cooling season is that they discover there is no cool air coming out of their vents. This means your AC can’t cool the house effectively, which leaves you in an uncomfortable environment, while also costing you a huge amount in monthly bills.

Additionally, if you let this problem go for too long then it could lead to AC system breakdown, costing you way more than it would have otherwise. So why is there no cool air coming from your vents? We’ve listed a couple possible reasons below.

Leaking Refrigerant

Low cooling levels are very often caused by leaking refrigerant. In an ideal situation, refrigerant follows and closed loop and never leaks. So when it does leak, the balance of the system is thrown off. Ice can form on the evaporator coils, and the AC system has to work a lot harder to cool the indoor air.

The developing ice represents lost cooling potential, and the way it insulates the refrigerant from the air it is supposed to cool will only make the problems worse over time.

Dirty Condenser

Your system’s condenser coils are located in the outside portion of your air conditioner, and as a result they become coated with dust and debris, which can cover the vents. When this happens, condensers cannot do their job effectively and the refrigerant isn’t prepared for the cooling portion of the process as it should be. Be sure to keep the outside portion of your air conditioning system free of dust and debris, and schedule routine maintenance appointments.
