It’s a sweltering day in Rome, NY, and your air conditioning system isn’t helping you stay as cool as you’d like. You’ve checked to make sure windows and doors are shut and that your thermostat is working, but neither of those scenarios are the problem. When your air conditioning system isn’t cooling properly, it’s likely you’ll need AC repair. According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, there are five main issues that could be causing your unit to not cool your home properly – refrigerant, airflow problems, thermostat issues, drainage problems or a dirty filter.
