When summer hits in Bath, Pennsylvania, the last thing you want to worry about is warm air coming from your AC. If it happens to you, don’t panic. Usually, the fix isn’t as challenging as you might think. Before you call your contractor, see if one of these issues might be to blame.
When your air conditioner is blowing hot air during the summer, it’s easy to panic and assume the worst. Before calling your HVAC contractor, check your thermostat. The issue could be as easy as having your thermostat on the heat setting instead of the cool setting. Your air conditioner will still blow air, but it won’t be as cool. Also make sure that your batteries aren’t dead in your thermostat, which can cause the system to shut down unexpectedly as well.
Dirty Or Clogged Air Filter
During the hot summers, your HVAC system works in overdrive to keep your house cool. When you don’t check your filters, they are susceptible to becoming dirty or clogged. When air can’t properly pass through the filters, it might result in warm air coming from your vents, warm spots throughout your own, and indoor air quality concerns. Make sure to change your filters at least every three months, but check them often especially when your HVAC system is working hard.
Outside Unit Issues
Sometimes you might lose electricity to your outdoor unit, but maintain the electricity in your home. If you’re feeling warm air from your vents, head outside and see if you can hear your unit running. If it’s not running, then check the breaker or emergency switch and reset it if necessary. Call your HVAC contractor if this problem happens often. The breaker tripping often could signify an issue with the unit or the electricity.
