Why Is My Air Conditioner Blowing Out Warm Air?

It’s a scorching hot day. You know your air conditioner is on - you can hear it. But why isn’t your home getting any cooler?

There are several reasons why your air conditioner might not be working. Here’s a quick guide to help you figure out what’s going on.

1) Check the Thermostat

The batteries may be dead, or a setting may have gotten changed. The thermostat should be your first stop whenever your system stops working.

2) Check your Filter

When your filter is dirty, it blocks airflow to your air conditioner. Check your filter and replace it if it’s dirty. This should be completed once a month.

3) Condenser Coil

If you haven’t cleaned or replaced your filter, it can lead to a bigger issue - a dirty condenser coil. Just like a dirty filter, an improperly cleaned coil will block the cool air from dispersing in your home. It could also lead to larger, more expensive problems if it’s left dirty for too long.

4) Blown fuse

Check your circuit breaker and make sure that it hasn’t tripped. If it has, reset it and see if your system starts working. If it trips continuously, you may have a larger electrical problem that requires either an electrician or an HVAC professional.

5) Refrigerant Levels

You may have a low level of refrigerant, which means you have a leak somewhere in your system. Simply refilling the refrigerant will not solve the issue. The leaks must be located and sealed by a professional.
