There’s no worse time for your air conditioner to fail than on a hot, humid summer day. Hot air is the last thing you want to feel coming from your air conditioner or heat pump in the middle of summer. In this blog post, The Ice-Man, the top AC repair company in our local area, explains why your AC or heat pump is blowing warm air even when in cooling mode.
Dirty Air Filter
The air filter protects your air conditioner or heat pump’s inner workings from dust, debris and dirt, and clean air filters are necessary for proper airflow. If your air filter is clogged and dirty, then your system may not be able to provide you with an adequate amount of cool air. It will take a long time to cool your home, so you’ll end up wasting a lot of energy.
When the compressor is broken, your HVAC system won’t be able to function properly because the refrigerant gases can’t be taken from the evaporator and turned into high-pressure gas. Compressors usually stop working because of overheating, refrigerant issues and electrical failures. If you suspect that your system’s compressor is broken, then you need to call us for an inspection. We’re an experienced AC contractor, so we know exactly how to deal with this problem.
Low refrigerant is another common reason for an HVAC system to blow warm air. Joints can also become loose in your system, causing the refrigerant to leak. This is a problem that requires professional assistance. Our technicians can pinpoint the source of the leak, fix it and charge the refrigerant to the proper level.
