I live in an apartment community. The weather here in Phoenix

Customer Question

I live in an apartment community. The weather here in Phoenix has been around 115 degrees. My ac is not blowing enough cold air through the vents. I actually have to put my hand in the registers to see if cold air is blowing out. Some vents are blowing very little cool air, some not at all.

Welcome!

So far it sounds like the cooling coil is iced... that blocks air flow.

Tell me the brand and model number of the system, and I can show you how to solve that or other problems, depending on your skill sets and if you able to access the roof unit or not.

I need to know exactly what you have.

In case it turns out to be an iced cooling coil
The cure for that is to set the thermostat to OFF, then set the Fan control to FAN ON... leave it that way for 3 hours. Replace the air filter. and do not run the system at night with the thermostat set below 72F...(that causes coil icing)
