Now that the chilliest days and nights of the year are behind us once more, many homeowners are turning their minds to their air conditioners. When the temperatures really heat up in this area, there is just no way to live in comfort without a great air conditioner working at peak performance levels in your home. That is why any problems with your air conditioner are of such serious concern. Perhaps with the exception of a total breakdown, the most obvious cause of air conditioning trouble is a system that is blowing warm air.
If you have warm air coming from your AC vents, you need to contact a member of our team right away. The longer that you wait to do so, the worse off your comfort and very likely your system will be. Don’t let manageable problems turn into very serious headaches due to inaction on your part. We’re here to guarantee that your air conditioning repairs in Fresno, CA are completed properly.
Potential Causes of Lackluster Cooling
There are a few different reasons as to why your air conditioner may be blowing warm or even hot air out of its vents. The “good” news here is that not all of these problems are terribly serious. In fact, you may not even need to have a professional service the system in some cases. You should always rule out some obvious causes before scheduling repairs.
- Check your thermostat. We really value our customers, but we also understand that you don’t necessarily want to call us out to your home for no reason. Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt our feelings. You definitely don’t need a professional service technician to adjust your thermostat if you set the temperature higher than intended, or if someone bumped up against it raised the temperature. It may also be in a “fan only” mode, or even in a heating mode if you use a heat pump.
- Check your circuit breaker. If your thermostat is actually set properly, you should check your circuit breaker or just step outside to ensure that your outdoor unit is running. Chances are that the outdoor unit is on its own circuit, and that circuit may have tripped. This will leave your indoor unit operational, but it will only be circulating unconditioned air throughout the house.
Obviously, adjusting thermostats and resetting circuit breakers are best case scenarios in the event of warm air coming from the AC. If there is no obvious cause of the problem, you need to schedule repairs right away. You could be dealing with an issue like a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant is what actually removes heat from the air in your home as it evaporates, before being condensed outdoors and shedding that heat. If there is not enough refrigerant in your system due to leaks, the air conditioner is not going to be able to cool the air in your home successfully.
We depend on our air conditioners too much in this part of the country to take any chances with their operation. We strive to provide honest answers and solutions to the problems our customers experience while remaining highly competitive in price, and offer the fastest turnaround you can find!
