Why Is My Air Conditioner Blowing Hot Air?

Posted on May 28th, 2020 by Devine Bros

Imagine this: your home is sweltering during one of the hottest days of summer and go to adjust your thermostat, only to find that hot air is coming out of your system. It may seem like a nightmare, but it might just be an easy fix. When you find yourself facing this issue, keep these three common causes in mind. 

Refrigerant Leak

Refrigerant is what keeps your unit cool. When there is a leak in this system, there is a leak in cold air. Most of the time, leaks are random and unpredictable. You’ll need to call a professional for help with this issue. 

Dirty Air Filter

Your air filter plays an important role in separating dust and debris, so that your AC pumps out clean and cool air. When it hasn’t been changed for a while, it can become clogged, put stress on your system, and lower it’s performance, too. The more dust and debris build up on your filter, the harder it will have to work to pump out cold air. Increase your chance of poor temperature control. 

Outside Unit Is Dirty

Many outside units will face various kinds of debris, weather conditions, and grime. If any of these factors block your outside unit, your inside unit will suffer as well! This will cause a backup in air flow and less cool air will come through.
