Why Is My Air Conditioner Blowing Warm Air?
Nothing’s worse than having your air conditioner stop working on a hot day. No one wants to turn on their air conditioner during the hot Florida summer and feel it blow warm air.
There are several reasons your air conditioner could be blowing warm air. Some are simple to fix, and others may require help from Sarasota air conditioning contractors.
If your air conditioner is sometimes blowing cool air and sometimes blowing warm air, check your thermostat. When your thermostat’s fan is switched to “On,” the fan will run continuously, even if the air conditioner isn’t cooling. Make sure your thermostat’s fan is set to “Auto.”
Dirty or Clogged Air Filter
A dirty air filter will restrict airflow. When your air filters are dirty, the air cannot properly circulate through your cooling system.
Replacing your air filters regularly will extend the life of your air conditioner, improve your indoor air quality, and keep your cooling system working its best.
Dirty Condenser Unit
The condenser unit is your air conditioner’s outside unit. Debris such as dirt and leaves can build up around your condenser unit over time. When the outdoor unit is blocked, your cooling system will struggle to keep your home cool.
Blowing warm air may be a sign that your air conditioner is low on refrigerant. Without enough refrigerant, your air conditioner will not be able to cool your home properly. Refrigerant is not used up the way gasoline is.
If your AC has a low coolant, it has a leak. You’ll need help from an air conditioning repair technician to find and repair the leak.
