Central air won't cool at night
This is an ongoing problem, and I have posted on here before about it. No one seems to know what's going on. FWIW, I have not had anyone come to my house to look at this problem.
This has been going on for several years, but a real heat wave is here, and it's going to get uncomfortable. My house stays cool throughout the day, but when night comes the fan runs, but the outside ac unit ( I think this is called the evaporator? ) will not turn on. The a/c runs fine from morning until night. It has happened for as long as I can remember. I have gone outside to check the a/c and I can hear a clunk or clicking sound every now and then.
It's just so strange that it only happens at night, but it's like clockwork. Any ideas or help appreciated.
