How Do You Know if Your AC is Working

June 3rd, 2011 · No Comments


Being a home inspector in Charlotte NC I get asked all the time “How do I know if my AC is working?”  or “How cold should an AC be?”  Well the answer is there should be a 15-20 degree differential from where the air goes in (return) to where the air comes out “(register).  For instance if the air going in is 75 degrees it should be 55-60 coming out after the unit has ran for a little while.  If it’s too low there could be a few possible reasons including low Freon, wrong fan speed, crimped duct etc.   Could the differential be too high.  Yes and there could be several reasons including wrong fan speed or a dirty filter.  There are several other things that could cause problems with your AC but if you want it inspected thoroughly call Home Inspection Carolina.
