As summer temperatures steadily rise, you don’t want your HVAC system to start blowing lukewarm air. There are a variety of reasons this may happen, and fortunately, many of them require quick and easy AC repairs. Below are a few common culprits and how to troubleshoot the problem.
Why Does Your Cooling System Blow Warm Air?
1. Unit Obstructions
When your HVAC system fails to cool your home, one of the first steps you should take is to look at the outdoor unit. Dirt, debris, and other obstacles may be blocking the fan, preventing the passage of air into the system. Remove any obstructions to restore the flow of cool air. If the problem persists, get in touch with an expert and ask them to check the motor.
2. Tripped Breakers
A loss or reduction in power to your outdoor unit can cause lukewarm airflow. Reset the circuit breakers and your unit will start pulling enough power to effectively cool your home. However, you may have more extensive electrical issues on your hands, which the AC repair experts will need to take care of for safety reasons.
3. Thermostat Issues
Double-check your thermostat when the HVAC system starts to blow warm air. The temperature may need to be adjusted or the heat setting may have accidentally been switched on. If all else fails, you’ll most likely need an AC repair team to outfit your system with a new thermostat that will communicate properly with your unit.
