Why Is My HVAC System Running But Not Cooling?

It has been hot here in the Greater Birmingham metro and unfortunately, it’s taken a toll on many homes’ air conditioning units. If you’re one of the unlucky ones whose HVAC system is running but not cooling, there could be a few reasons why.

HVAC units should last for years… if properly maintained

How long an HVAC unit will last depends on the type of system. The good news is that, regardless of the system type, if you keep up with routine maintenance, it should last for years. Of course, you might not know the history of your system especially if you just bought the home in the last year or two. In that case, you may want to schedule a cleaning and be on the lookout for signs that your unit isn’t working at its peak performance level.

Signs your HVAC system needs repairs

  • Warm air coming out of the vents but it’s set on cool
  • The air starts to turn on and off in short cycles
  • The A/C is leaking
  • The unit is making strange sounds
  • There’s been a jump in your electric bill

What to do if you notice any of these problems

If you nodded your head yes to any of the above-mentioned signs, you’re probably wondering how serious the problem is and what the next steps are. In order to determine if your HVAC simply needs some repair work or if you need a completely new system, the best course of action is to schedule service.
