With the heat and humidity ever on the rise in July, it’s a great time to take care of any problems with your AC that continue to prevent you from enjoying the comfort you deserve. There are few things less welcome than warm air blowing through the ducts in the middle of a hot summer. While this is not an uncommon problem, it’s certainly one that commands your immediate attention. If you notice that your AC is working with the heat and humidity instead of against them, call Henson Mechanical. We offer air conditioning repair services throughout the greater Conyers, GA area.
So, why is your AC blowing warm instead of crisp, cool, and refreshing air?
- Dirty condenser coils. One of the most common reasons why you found yourself surrounding by warm air is that your condenser coils are dirty. Your condenser resides in the outdoor unit and connects to the compressor, which feeds the coils high temperature and high pressure gas refrigerant in order to dissipate it into the outside air. If dust, dirt, and debris accumulate on the coils, then it can inhibit the dissipation of heat, and can lead to problems with the condensation phase of the refrigerant.
- Low refrigerant. Another possible culprit of the warm air coming through your ductwork is low refrigerant. This is typically caused by a leak of some kind, whether a physical puncture or corrosion, but it can also be caused by improper installation. Whatever the cause, it can severely impact the ability of your AC to function properly, thus leading to warm air.
- Frozen evaporator coils. Don’t let your coils turn into a block of ice this summer. Make sure that your air filter is kept clean at all times. When it becomes excessively dirty or clogged with debris, your filter can actually begin to work against the system it was designed to protect.
