Why Can’t My Air Conditioner Handle the Heat?

Las Vegas isn’t exactly known for its mild summer weather. Right now, we’ve entered the full summer scorcher period, with midday highs regularly reaching 110°F—and the coming months will only get hotter. This is when your air conditioning system in your home will really earn its keep.

But what if your AC is having trouble managing its vital job this year? If your home doesn’t seem to be cooling down as much as it should when the air conditioner is running, it may be due to a malfunction with the system. With the heat at its current extremes, you can’t afford to wait to solve trouble with your home cooling. Call our air conditioning experts, and we’ll rush to your assistance, any time of the day or night.

Reasons your air conditioner may be struggling

  • Age: You may simply have a cooling system that is past its prime, and repairs and maintenance will not be able to restore it to full function again. Most ACs can work for 15 years, but after that point they can start to make a precipitous drop in their abilities. If your AC is this old or older, have it replaced when it starts to fall down on the job.
  • Leaking refrigerant: Leaks that start along the refrigerant line will allow the chemical blend to start escaping. This will cause a drop in the AC’s cooling ability, and it will eventually lead to permanent damage to the compressor. Only professionals can seal these leaks and recharge the refrigerant.
  • Damaged ventilation system: The trouble may not come from the AC, but the ductwork. Air leaks will allow the cool air to escape, dropping the temperature throughout the ventilation system. Professional duct sealing will remedy this.
  • Broken thermostat: A thermostat that’s sensing incorrect temperatures may be causing the AC to turn on and off at the wrong times.
