No Cool Air from the AC?
There are a number of possibilities for why an air conditioner will lose its cooling power. Some are simple errors that you can correct yourself. Others are more complicated and will require HVAC technicians to diagnose and correct them. Here are 4 reasons for your AC only sending out warm air:
Incorrect thermostat settings
You might think this is too obvious. However, more than once we’ve gone on service calls and found the trouble was someone else in the house changing the thermostat settings (or just fiddling around with them). If the thermostat is set too high or to “fan only” mode, the AC won’t provide cooling.
Tripped circuit breaker to the outside unit
If the circuit breaker to the indoor unit of an AC trips, the fan won’t turn on at all, a major warning something is wrong. Check to see if any circuits have tripped in the electrical panel. Reset them and see if this solves the problem. If the circuit repeatedly trips, call for professionals to investigate.
The refrigerant is essential for an AC to remove heat from the air and provide cooling. When refrigerant levels drop, the AC can lose its cooling ability. Even worse, this places the compressor in danger of overheating and burning out. This results in a big repair and often a reason to replace the entire air conditioner.
The compressor is the heart of an AC; it places refrigerant under pressure to start the cooling cycle. If the compressor stops working, there won’t be any cooling. Only professionals are qualified to work on broken compressors, and you’ll want them on the job in a hurry to prevent more serious repair issues.
