When an air conditioning system blows out warm air, this is a sure sign of trouble. While some problems you can fix yourself, most require you to seek the help of an HVAC professional. Here are a few reasons why your AC makes your Spring Hill, FL, home hotter.
Dirty or Clogged Air Filter
Clogged or dirty air filters obstruct air flow, thus causing your AC to work harder. While filters ensure your air remains clean, cool air will not circulate easily when the filter is dirty. You can easily remedy this problem by changing your air filter.
HVAC experts recommend changing your air filters every 90 days. If you live in crowded conditions, such as with many people or pets, you should check and change your filter more frequently.
Low Refrigerant Levels
Refrigerant plays a pivotal role in ensuring your air conditioning system blows cool air. If refrigerant is leaking from your system, your refrigerant levels will be low. If your refrigerant levels are low, your system will not be able to complete the refrigeration process that creates cool air.
One indication of low refrigerant is when you see frost on your condenser coils. The only way to fix this problem is for you to contact an HVAC technician to repair the leak and recharge your refrigerant.
Thermostat Set Incorrectly
Sometimes, your AC will blow out warm air if your thermostat is set incorrectly. Check your thermostat to make sure it is not set to heat or fan.
Sometimes, your AC system will blow warm air because it is failing due to reaching the end of its lifespan. An entirely new air conditioning installation is the only solution to this problem.
