As Singapore is located in Asia, hence it is
prone to experience humid weather all year
through. Thus, it is not a surprise that aircon
in Singapore are a big deal.
You will find an aircon in almost every home and
office, but you will seldom find people taking
the proper steps to maintain it. And this
negligence, leads to insufficient cooling which
is of course a problem but, it is also
accompanied with high energy cost which is
absolutely unwanted by everyone.
So, if you are also dealing with an aircon that
cannot cool your room properly then you should
take immediate step to take care of this
problem. To help you to deal with this, here are
for you are the 10 reasons why your aircon is
not cooling according to your preference and
also how to make your aircon cold again
10 reasons why your aircon is not cold anymore?
Blocked air filter
Due to improper maintenance, the air filter in
the air condition may gather dust which results
into blocked air filter. Because of this, the
machine is unable to circulate cool air in the
room. This problem can be easily solved by
cleaning or changing the filter.
Other than blocked filter, blocked compressor is
also another common problem Singaporean who owns
aircon face regularly. The outdoor unit gets
exposed to dust and dirt way too much and thus
not cleaning it frequently will result into
blocked compressor. Besides, the outdoor unit
should be clear of any kind of obstructions. If
there are presence of tall grasses and trees,
then due to the blockage the compressor cannot
properly cool the refrigerant, which means
improper production of cool air in the room.
It also could be that you have got a defected
compressor. In such a case, you need to first
check the capacity of the compressor and also
check the overload protector and replace it to
make the air conditioner cold again.
Blocked drainage pipe
Aircon removes the moisture from the room and
this forms water in the machine. A condensate
drainage pipe is thus installed in the machine
to remove this water. If somehow this drainage
pipe gets blocked then the air condition fails
to work properly again.
Incorrect thermostat setting
Believe it or not, many people make the silly
mistake of not setting the thermostat correctly.
Most model has “on” and “auto” options so try
switching it to “auto” from “on”. The “auto”
option will ensure that the aircon is blowing
out air according to the temperature of the
Low refrigerant gas
Many times leaks cause the level of refrigerant
gas to lower down which result into circulation
of warm air by the machine. This is quite a
serious problem that should be dealt with
In need of chemical replacement
If your aircon is comparatively old, then in
such a case it may be that your machine needs a
chemical replacement or overhaul to work
Problems with fan wheel
The fan in the indoor unit sometimes stops
working properly which results into circulation
of warm air. The motor’s inability to work
properly can be a reason why the fan is not
working properly. If you see that the fan is
indeed working correctly then the problem can
lie in the capacitor.
Problems with ductwork Many times it is not the aircon but the
ductwork of your HVAC system that is not working
Problems with condenser coil
Any problem and/or accumulated dirt in the
condenser coil are major reasons why the aircon
is not working properly and the room is not
becoming cold as it once used to.
How to make your aircon cold again?

are many other reasons to why your air
conditioner is not doing its job accurately. You
might notice that all these problems, although
minor, require taking apart the machine. And
then there is the taking out parts and putting
in new ones if the problem is caused by
damaged/defected parts. Thus, if you do not have

job to fix your aircon yourself.
