Heating and Air Conditioning systems are complicated machines that need regular maintenance to function properly. The HVAC system is a vital part of any home, but sometimes things go wrong. If you’re experiencing warm air blowing out from your AC or the sound of gurgling water when it’s running, it’s time to call a professional for help. This blog post will discuss why your ac is blowing out warm air and what you should do about it!
Check the thermostat to make sure it’s set correctly
If there is a thermostat setting that corresponds to heat, it’s possible the AC unit isn’t cooling properly because the system is in heating mode. Check with your HVAC company for more information on how you can change this setting temporarily or permanently if need be.
- Changing the thermostat setting to a cooler temperature can help temporarily. Call your HVAC company if it doesn’t make any difference after running for an hour or two, as this may be due to problems with the system’s coils.
- If you have central air and are experiencing warm air blowing out from your vents, check that there is nothing blocking airflow in front of the unit before calling someone for repairs. Sometimes trees will grow too close over time which needs trimming back!
In order for a cooling system like your AC unit to work properly, it need regular maintenance to function correctly. The HVAC system is vital part of home life but sometimes things go wrong – especially when you’re using an older system.
Checking a basic system for maintenance includes: checking the thermostat to make sure it’s set correctly, cleaning coils and filters on the HVAC unit (do this at least twice per year), changing air conditioning filter(s) in your home every month or two, look for any object blocking airflow like leaves around vents or furniture close to windows, check that all electrical outlets are working properly as well as outdoor lights next to the AC units.
Regularly scheduled maintenance will go a long way towards determining whether an issue is related to routine upkeep of your heating and cooling system – but if you’re still having trouble with Thermostats not controlling temperature when using either heat pump systems or central air conditioners then contact us to schedule an appointment immediately.
Make sure your filter is clean and free of debris
- Check your filter for dirt, leaves or debris. If it’s dirty, clean and replace the filter
- Make sure the seal around the casing at the top of your unit is tight
- If the seal is broken, replace it
- Check your thermostat settings. It may be set too high or low for current conditions.
You can also check with an HVAC contractor to make sure everything is optimal and give you recommendations on how to keep your system running smoothly all year long!
If you have a central AC, check for leaks by turning off all the vents in your home
- Check all of the joints and connections for any signs of liquid or dampness
- If you find a leak, contact an HVAC contractor to fix it now before more damage occurs.
Check if there are any loose wires or clamps that may be blocking airflow from your unit
- Wires should be tight and secure to the unit
- Clamps, or hoses that attach your AC to a nearby window or door frame, should not have any slack.
If you find these clamps are loose on either side of the opening they’re attached to (the central air conditioner and where it connects), tighten them with a pliers until they make an audible ‘click’. If this doesn’t solve the problem, contact an HVAC contractor for further assistance!
