When your home is getting hotter and hotter, you may place your hand over the air vent to discover you have warm air blowing into your home and not cool air. You may wonder why your air conditioner is producing warm air and not cool air as it should. Hal Mechanical will share what is going wrong in your air conditioning and what needs to be done to get your air conditioner working properly again.
Troubleshooting Why AC is Blowing Hot Air
Before you call an air conditioner technician to repair your air conditioner, there are some basic areas of your cooling system you will want to check. Some of these more basic problems can be corrected without the need of a technician. Your first step is to check the thermostat. Make sure it is setting to “Auto” and “Cool.” At the same time, make sure that you have selected the right temperature setting. Next, make sure the breakers to the cooling system hasn’t been tripped and that the power supply switch is on. Afterwards, check the air filters and make sure they are not dirty. If they need to be changed, have the filters changed out. Lastly, inspect the outdoor unit. You will want to make sure that there is no debris or vegetation crowding around the unit which restricts air flow. If you checked all of these areas of your cooling system and they check out, you may have a bigger problem that will require the aid of a technician.
Mechanical AC Failure
If your air conditioner develops a mechanical problem that is preventing a proper cooling cycle, the technician will be able to locate it and repair the component. There are a few common mechanical problems that will prevent the air from cooling. One of those is a refrigerant leak. If you have develop a leak in the air conditioning system, then the air conditioner will not be able to make cold air. Another common problem that prevents the air conditioning system from making cold air is when the condenser is failing. The condenser works with the compressor to pump the refrigerant throughout the system to help create the cold air. The evaporator coils need to be kept clean for the production of air cold air. The evaporator coil will need to be cleaned if they become dirty. If the evaporator is dirty or you have a refrigerant leak, you may see ice developing on your air conditioner. When you have a mechanical problem, you will need to have the air conditioning system inspected to discover where the mechanical problem is and have the component repaired. To prevent air conditioning failure from occurring this summer season, make to have your air conditioner tuned-up. During a tune-up the entire air conditioning system inspected and cleaned. Moving parts are lubricated and failing components are replaced or repaired. With yearly tune-ups you can better prevent air conditioning problems.
