    3 Reasons Your AC Isn’t Blowing Cold Air

    What’s worse than an air conditioner that doesn’t work at all? An air conditioner that isn’t blowing cold air. This is one of the most irritable malfunctions in the inescapable Florida heat.

    Air conditioning systems have many different parts that work together to ensure their proper function, but not blowing cold air is one of the most commonly reported problems. Here are three reasons why your AC could be causing your temperament to rise.

    1. Check Your Fan Setting

    If your AC doesn’t blow cold air, the answer could be as simple as your thermostat being on the wrong setting. Setting your fan to “AUTO” will not only save you money, but it will also ensure that your fan is only running when your air conditioner is cooling the air. When your fan is set to “ON,” your air conditioner is running 24/7, regardless of whether it is cooling the air or not.

    2. Check Your Air Filter

    A longer lasting filter is another one of the pros of keeping your fan setting on auto. While many people like to change their AC filters once a month, there are those who wait for their air filter to look the same as their lint trap after a few weeks. A dirty air filter prevents air from flowing back into the air conditioner which inhibits the AC from cooling correctly.

    3. Check Your Circuit Breaker

    Breakers trip all the time but when your AC isn’t blowing cold air, your mind probably presumes the worst. Your air conditioning connects to two circuit breakers; one for the outside unit and another for the inside. If the outside breaker trips and the inside breaker is still functioning, the air can’t be cooled. Reset the breaker, but if it happens again don’t be too fast to reset it as it could cause damage to your AC.
