Is your air conditioner blowing warm air? If so, identifying the problem is critical to staying comfortable this spring and summer. Check out our list of reasons and solutions for an air conditioner that won’t blow cold air.
Dirty or cheap air filters in Raleigh
As with many other HVAC issues, the air filters can play a role in your A/C unit malfunctioning. If your air filter is clogged and dirty, it will prevent clean air from circulating through the ductwork and cooling your home. In addition, the typical $10 air filter is an inefficient A/C solution that can decrease your comfort. Change your filters monthly, or better yet, upgrade to a high efficiency media filter.
Blocked or dirty outdoor air conditioner in Durham, NC
Every so often, it’s important to take a walk outside and check out the outdoor unit. Clear away any leaves, twigs or branches that have fallen on the unit. Trim back any bushes or shrubs that have begun to crowd the unit, as this will allow it to transfer air more efficiently. Also, dirty condenser coils will have a hard time cooling the air that comes in. Schedule your condenser coil cleaning with Rapid Repair Experts for cooler air this spring.
Thermostat set to ON in Chapel Hill
If you’ve read our previous blogs, you may know your thermostat’s ON setting can increase spring allergies. Well, it can also affect your comfort. The ON setting runs the fan non-stop, so it turns even when the air conditioner isn’t cooling air. This results in warm air constantly blowing and raising the temperature in your home. Set your thermostat to AUTO, or upgrade to a new thermostat with a circulate feature.
