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.

Blocked compressor

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.

Defective compressor

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 room.

Air Conditioner

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 immediately.

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 effectively again.

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 properly.

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.
