Check the filter and see if its in need of a change out.. If thats not it and your getting cool air out of the vents but no real airflow, its probably the fan in the air handler.

Help A/c Not Blowing


I'm not an HVAC technician, but I have a 1998 Carrier heatpump system.
Whenever I run into a weak air flow situation, it always means that the blower (circulating) fan motor control has gone out.
It happens so frequently with this Carrier heatpump design (once a year or least every other year), that I keep a spare motor control (about $200) and learned how to replace it myself.
That may be the problem, if you don't change the filter monthly.
Good Luck!
Mike

Last year, I had that same problem and had to have the motor replaced. It would have cost hundreds, but I took out a home warranty insurance ($39 month) and had it fixed by a lic. AC repair company for a $45 fee.

I have had the same problem, twice now and it was determined that there was a refrigerant leak.
