Preventive maintenance is vital for making sure your air conditioner can efficiently cool your home through the summer. But some air conditioning issues are unavoidable. Whether it’s because of a lack of maintenance, aging or a simple oversight, your air conditioner might fail to keep your family cool. Here’s why the air conditioner in your Carrollton, Texas, home is blowing warm air and what to do about it:
Clogged Air Filter
Your air conditioner’s filter might not seem essential to the system’s operation. But if you don’t change it regularly, it can inhibit adequate airflow and cause temperature issues in your home. A clogged air filter can strain your air conditioner. As a result, it’ll cause it to struggle to cool your home and break down frequently. To avoid these issues, change your air conditioner’s filter every 30 to 90 days. If you suffer from allergies, change it more often.
You might feel silly if your air conditioner is blowing warm air because you’ve set the thermostat to the wrong setting. But luckily it’s an easy fix that won’t require an extensive AC repair. If you’ve mistakenly set your thermostat to HEAT, change it to COOL. Also, make sure you’ve set the fan to AUTO instead of ON to avoid it running continuously.
Damaged AC Compressor
Your air conditioner’s outdoor unit contains the compressor. The compressor’s job is to convert the refrigerant to its liquid form and remove heat from the air in your home. If the compressor fails, your air conditioner won’t be able to cool your home. As a result, you’ll feel hot air coming from the supply vents. Since the compressor is a complex and significant component of your AC system, it’s crucial that a professional service technician works on it.
