Home AC won’t call to cool when it warms outside.


Hi all.

I’ve noticed that my HVAC isn’t calling to cool when it’s warm out.

I noticed last season as we left summer into Fall (Houston). I thought it was my imagination as when I came home (travel for a living) it was working.

And it worked all though winter into spring.

Today was the first day we passed 80F outside and I noticed if I dial down the desired internal temp it won’t kick on.

The blower works fine but I can tell the compressor isn’t kicking in.

Does this sound like a thermostat issue?

When it works, it REALLY works, so I don’t have a lack of refrigerant or blown cap.


Odd, I know. But thanks for reading.

Check with your meter and see if it’s calling outside on the thermostat wires.
Or see if the contactor is pulled in.

Re: Home AC won’t call to cool when it warms outside.


It could be a fuse, breaker, disconnect - check them all.
It could be the T-Stat, or even something simple as the batteries.
