How to Deal with Warm Air Blowing Out of Your AC Unit

Posted by

It should feel cool and refreshing when air is blowing out of your vents from air conditioning units. You can tell something is wrong if it feels warm or lukewarm. There could be many reasons why your air conditioner is blowing out warm air, and you should immediately call professionals to deal with the situation as quickly as possible.

The good news is that even though you might need to call an HVAC specialist, you can occasionally diagnose and resolve this problem on your own. However, we always recommend calling AC maintenance services if you notice any signs of warm air coming out of your AC unit. Here’re a few things you can do to diagnose the issue and get the right solutions.

Check the Thermostat

Check your thermostat even if you believe it is set appropriately, especially if you share a house with someone who might have “adjusted” it. It’s likely that the warm air in your home is only being circulated by the fan on your air conditioner.

The system’s fan is operating if your thermostat displays “on.” The fan will continue to circulate air out of the vents as a result, even if the indoor unit isn’t cooling the space. For the fan to circulate the indoor air as the AC cools and dehumidifies it, your thermostat must be set to “auto” or “cool” mode.

Check the power in ON of your outdoor unit

Your air conditioner consumes a lot of power to run. Your outdoor unit may trip the circuit breaker as a result of a brief power spike. If warm air is coming out of your AC, look for a tripped switch in your circuit breaker panel.

Check to see if anything is obstructing

The condenser, which is the exterior unit of your air conditioner, releases heat outside while cooling your indoor space. As a result, it requires space for ventilation on its top and sides. Make sure there is at least 1 foot of clearance all around the condenser as well as a minimum of 5 feet of vertical headroom. Remove any weeds, and trim back any bushes or hedging that are encroaching on the machinery.

Check the air filter

Most manufacturers claim that the air filters of an air conditioner last up to 90 days. That filter will become dirty far sooner than the 90-day period if you use your air conditioner continuously for weeks on end. The air filter of your AC unit will get dirty even more quickly if you have pets. Your air-conditioning unit cannot circulate air when the air filter is covered with dust. This causes various issues.

Parts of your air conditioner may overheat as a result, and the condensation on the evaporator coil may freeze. When the coil ices over, it is unable to efficiently chill your indoor air. In addition, a frozen evaporator coil increases the risk of the compressor overheating and failing. You will require the assistance of an HVAC expert if the above troubleshooting approaches fail to resolve your air conditioning issue.
