Having your air conditioner blow out warm air can be very frustrating, especially in the summer months. If your home feels stuffy and hot when you enter, you may be experiencing a situation where your air conditioner is blowing hot air instead of cold. This can be a sign that your air conditioner needs attention, as the air being circulated is not being cooled to a comfortable level.
To resolve the issue, you can follow a few simple steps.
STEP 1: CHECK YOUR AIR FILTER
The initial step is to inspect the air filter. If the air filter is clogged with dirt and dust, it can restrict the flow of air, causing your air conditioner to blow out warm air. Try replacing the filter to see if this solves the issue.
STEP 2: CLEAN THE COILS.
The following step is to sanitize the evaporator and condenser coils. Over time, these coils can become clogged with dirt, dust, and grime, which can cause the air conditioner to blow out warm air. Cleaning the coils should be done by a professional, as they require specialized tools.
STEP 3: CHECK THE REFRIGERANT LEVELS.
The last step is to check the refrigerant levels. If the refrigerant levels are low, it can cause the air conditioner to blow out warm air. It is recommended that refrigerant levels be inspected and adjusted by a professional.
If none of these steps fix the problem, then it could be a more serious issue, such as a malfunctioning compressor or a failing fan. An AC system that is blowing hot air can be caused by a variety of issues, including a dirty air filter, a malfunctioning compressor, a defective thermostat, or a blocked condensate drain line. In some cases, it could also be caused by an improperly charged refrigerant. To diagnose and fix the issue, you can start by cleaning or replacing the air filter, checking the compressor for any signs of damage, and inspecting the condensate drain line for any blockages. If the issue persists, you may need to call a professional HVAC technician to inspect and repair your AC system.
