all are working but its not cold air coming through
HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 7 months ago

While unit is on, put your hand on the copper pipes that exits the house to the machine, one of them has black insulation, peel it back.

The large pipe should be cold and but not the small one. if not the you have lost your refrigerant and will need to be repaired by technician
