Reasons Your Air Conditioner Blows Hot Air

Air Conditioning Maintenance - Why Your Unit May Be Blowing Hot AirWhen you turn on your air conditioner the last thing you want blowing out is hot air. Hot air blowing from your air conditioner is just about as bad as if the community pool was shut down for the summer. Instead of sweating it out in your home, check a few of these easy problems. Know how to avoid them, and when to call a professional.

Air Conditioner Items to Check Before Calling For Help

Dirty Air Filter

Make sure you change out your filter regularly. A dirty filter can clog your air conditioner’s condensing coil with dust and contaminants causing your A/C to freeze up, hence your air conditioner will not be cooling your home properly.

Outside A/C Unit Not Properly Maintained

Go outside and take a look at your outside condenser. Is it dirty or covered with debris? Having a maintenance plan will ensure that your air conditioner is cleaned properly. Making sure that the condensing coils are cleaned regularly is critical in proper cooling function of your air conditioner.

Check Your Thermostat

Check your thermostat and ensure that it is set on cool. If someone accidentally switched it to heat, switch it to cool, and that may just solve your hot air problem.

Low on Refrigerant or Freon

When an air conditioner is blowing hot air, a refrigerant or Freon leak is most likely the culprit. If there isn’t enough Freon in the air conditioner it will tend to freeze up. It is best to leave this up to your local HVAC contractor.
