Why is My AC Blowing Lukewarm Air in Summerlin, NV? Does Condenser have Power?

You come home from work and realize that your home is no longer cool but the AC is still running. You walk around and feel under the vents and notice that it is blowing warm air instead of cold air. What do you do? There are a few steps that you should take before you call a professional. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning go over what some of these steps are so that you can try them and see if they will fix your AC.

Check Thermostat Settings

If you notice that your AC is blowing warm air the first thing you should do is walk over to your thermostat and check it. There is a chance that your thermostat got switched to the fan setting instead of on cool or auto. When this happens, the fan will blow the air through the air ducts and out of the vents but will not bring cool air into your home. If you have other people living in your house make sure you check your thermostat first if it is not blowing cold air anymore.

Does Outdoor Condenser Unit have Power?

You need to remember that your AC is a very high-powered appliance. This means it has to use a lot of energy and power to operate. If there have been any power surges then your outdoor unit could have tripped a breaker. When it has tripped a breaker then your AC will just blow out warm air. Go check your breakers if your AC is blowing warm air. It is also important to know that if you have had your AC worked on recently a technician has to turn off the power. If that technician forgot to turn it back on then the outdoor unit could be the cause of the AC blowing warm air.

Is it Clear Around the Outdoor Unit?

The condenser or outdoor unit releases heat. Because it releases the heat, it needs room for ventilation around it. This means that the top and sides need to be cleared. You need to go pull any weeds, cut back shrubs, trees, or anything that has grown around your condenser, and clear it out. This could be causing the warm air in your home if the condenser or outside unit has something blocking it.

Are Air Filters Clean?

Your air filters are good for up to 90 days. This means if you hit 90 days you have gone too long from changing your air filters. Now, air filters can get dirty before 90 days. If you are constantly running your AC and you have pets, your air filters will get dirty before 90 days. A good rule of thumb is to change air filters every 1 to 3 months. So, you need to decide how dirty your air filters get, so you know how often you need to change the air filters. If you let your air filters go too long then air is not getting through it as easily and can cause stress on your air conditioner and start sending out warm air.
