Causes of Warm Air Blowing Out
of Your Air Conditioner


Category: HVAC

The last thing you want when the sun is blazing and dazzling is for the air conditioner to blow warm air over you. You may have good reason to be concerned if your air conditioner is blowing warm air. In fact, it's likely that's why you're here. This short article will go over some of the potential causes of your air conditioner's malfunction. Call right away to schedule an air conditioner repair if you want to skip the details. We also provide installation and replacement services for AC units.

1. Check the Thermostat

Let's start with the fundamentals first. Check the thermostat. Even though it might seem obvious, it's worth a try. The thermostat could have been set to 70 degrees, but a someone in the building may have "helped out" by turning it up.

Make sure the air conditioner is set to "cool" or even "auto" in addition to verifying the temperature setting; if it is merely set to "on," it may be that only the fan is operating. Even worse, the temperature can be set to "hot."

2. Check the Power

Great, then. Another blatant recommendation, right? The power source must be working if the air conditioner is blowing, but what about the exterior unit, specifically the condenser? It won't chill the air if its power is gone.

Locate the switch that operates the condenser unit by checking your circuit breaker panel. If the circuit breaker trips "OFF" again, do not force the switch back "ON"; there may be electrical problems that require inspection by a qualified specialist. If the circuit breaker trips "OFF," then reset it by switching it back "ON."

3. Dirty Air Filter

The air filter is in charge of preventing trash and other particles from entering your home's HVAC system. But if it fills up too much, the airflow will be constrained and the cooling will suffer. As a general rule, air filters should be changed once every season, and more frequently if you have pets or residents who suffer from allergies or respiratory conditions. It's time to replace the filter if you can't see any light passing through it.

4. Low Refrigerant

For proper cooling, refrigerant is ESSENTIAL, and low refrigerant levels are bad. Since air conditioners do not use up refrigerant, we hope this is not the issue. There is probably a leak in the air conditioning equipment if the refrigerant level is low. It's challenging to locate and fix these fissures. Fortunately, technicians have the expertise, training, and tools necessary to identify the problem's main cause and stop it in its tracks.

We'll fix any issues with your air conditioner.
