Why does it just blow cool air?


Check outside condensing unit. Should feel warm to hot air blowing out of the top. If cool to outside air temperature blowing off you likely have a refrigerant problem

Cool air when running; warm air when compressor is off.


It sounds as if warm outside air is being drawn back into the room when the unit is not actively cooling. Portable units depend on room air to carry the heat outside, & therefore will not work properly if the room is too airtight. Provide a makeup air passage by leaving the door slightly open, & see if this helps. Use a room thermometer to see if your desired temperature is being reached. Note that if the wind is strong & coming from the wrong direction, it may not be possible to prevent warm air drawback.

It is 105-110F outside and I think that I am only getting no more than 2 degrees of cooling from my central air conditioning unit. I have been changing my air filter about every two days, two months ago...


Two thoughts come immediately to mind. Your outdoor condensing unit may not be running at all or is extremely low on refrigerant due to a leak or you have flexible
ductwork and it has come apart under your home especially in the return area.

Also, if you feel the larger of the two lines to the outdoor unit and it is not "Beer can cold" then the compressor is most likely not running, just the fan which would give the appearance the unit is running.
This would most likely be a failed capacitor. (secure all power from
all sources to inside and outside unit and pull out the disconnect before attempting
replacement). Check for bulged cans or leaking cans and replace with exact same
microfarad/ voltage rating. You can get the caps from any HVAC store for around 20 dollars.

Rudd air conditioner isn't cooling,blowing ,but isn't cooling my house because air is not cold


Hello, first check if the outside unit is running, if it is then check filter to make sure it is clean and that the blower wheel is clean and not dirty. If the unit is clean then most likely you have a low refrigerant charge due to a leak and will need a hvac tech to come out and fix the leak.

Does a window unit have to be in a window? can i put it in the house?


A window unit is designed to have the side with the controls in the space which is to be cooled and the other side to be outside. If you simply put it on the coffe table, blowing at you, you may feel cooler for a little while, but the heat of the fan motor and compressor added to the heat from the outside coil, will raise the temperature of the room.

Best bet is to put it in a window or to have a sleeve made for a through the wall installation.

I have a 2 1/2 ton unit. If the outside temperature is 95 degrees. What should I expect from my unit in cooling my house.


If properly charged your unit should perform fine, having a dirty condensor at that temperature can cause problems not easily recognized.

A well insulated house should be able to maintain a 20 degree temperature difference whether its summer
or winter. No Mechanical cooling or heating involved
for at least 6-8hrs if not more.

If it never cools when it is 95 degrees outside the ambient outside temperature is not the problem.
At 95 degree out side air you should be seeing inside discharge air temperatures betwenn 48-55 degrees.

It is the load in the house that determines how long the unit will run at 95 degress.

Rheem outside a/c fan won't turn off


I would probably start at the thermostat and see if 24 volts is continued to be applied to the yellow wire which calls for unit activity even though you have called this off. Shorting the cool (yellow) wire to the return (red) wire will cause the HVAC system to begin cooling and the fan will be turned on automatically.

House HVAC Not Blowing


If the outside unit is running and the inside unit is not, probably a problem with the fan motor itself or its capacitor. If you have to have someone repair or replace the fan $200-$250 with parts, a capacitor for a service call and part $100 or so. Check it yourself first to see if there is anything obvious broken wire, hot connection, etc if you feel safe doing that. Turn the power off first. There is also a chance the thermostat could be the problem. Have you tried running the fan on the thermostat "fan on" setting?

Outside Unit blowing air but not cooling and slight buzzing sound


The compressor is not coming on and some part of that unit has failed. Do you hear any clicking sounds along with the buzzing sound? Recommend that you shut the unit down (remove power from it) until a service tech can listen to it try to start up.

The power company-installed load management system is probably a red hearing. That system will either fully turn off the unit or allow it to turn on/start up.
