Do you have hot or warm air coming out of your vents even though you have set your thermostat to cooling? We’ve provided some possible causes and solutions in this blog post.
If you need immediate assistance, don’t hesitate to call us and we will take care of your home as soon as possible.
3 Reasons Your Air Conditioning Unit Is Blowing Hot Air:
Restriction in Air Flow
If you have a restriction in airflow, it may be caused by your filter being clogged or your condenser coils being dirty. If you have a ESA with us, we chemically clean your condenser coils once per year and that happens during your spring maintenance. So, if your filter is clean and you haven’t had your spring maintenance yet, the culprit could be your condenser coils being dirty. Call us and we can push through your inspection and do it early for you if it’s not your scheduled time.
Your Thermostat is Set Incorrectly
Sometimes we arrive to homes for service calls and the issue is just the thermostat. Make sure that you have your thermostat programmed properly. It’s easy to accidentally set heat mode instead of cool. If you are having issues programming your thermostat, just give us a call and we will come take a look for you. And don’t forget, if you are an ESA customer, diagnostic fee’s are FREE! That saves you $89 EVERY TIME you have a service call!
The Outside Unit isn’t Getting Electricity
If you have a split system then you have an indoor (Air Handler) and an outdoor (Condenser) unit. The Air Handler is normally where you change filters and it has the fan that blows the air conditioned air into your house. So, it only works when your outdoor unit is operating properly.
The Condenser is where the cool air is made. So if you have hot/warm air coming in through your vents, check your breaker box to see if one tripped. This can cause there to be no electricity going to the unit. Flip the breaker and keep your fingers crossed! If you are still experiencing issues, call us and we will come diagnose your issue.
Other reasons that your unit could be blowing hot air may be that your unit is low on refrigerant or your duct-work could be disconnected and pulling hot attic air or outside air into your home.
If you have done all you can do and you can’t seem to figure out why your unit is blowing hot air, give us a call and we will get a technician out to your residence or business as soon as possible. Don’t forget that we have technicians on call 24-7 and you can always call our office no matter the time to place a service call.
