Why Does My AC Blow Warm Air?

question-markThere are certain points in life when taking a big gamble can pay off in huge dividends. For those of us living here in Arizona, though, gambling with our air conditioning systems is just taking things too far. It is much too hot for too much of the year around here to take any chances with the condition or overall operational quality of your air conditioning system. Any irregularities with its performance should raise a red flag.

Aside from a complete system breakdown, an air conditioner that blows warm air from its vents is probably the most alarming situation that a homeowner could encounter with his or her system. However, the problem may not be quite as serious as it seems. In fact, you may be able to resolve the issue yourself in mere moments. Just remember that it could be something serious, though. If you cannot find a simple solution to get your air conditioner in Tucson, AZ back on track promptly, then give our professional technicians a call.

Check Your Thermostat and Your Circuit Breaker

Are you surprised by the simplicity of the advice given above? Does it sound a bit obvious to you? Well, it may not be the most complex answer to your problem, but are you really looking for complexity? By simply adjusting your thermostat or resetting your circuit breaker, you could resolve this problem on your own in mere minutes!

If your thermostat is accidentally set to its “fan-only” mode, for instance, it will simply circulate unconditioned air throughout your home. That’s fine if you just want to keep some airflow going, but it is not going to bring down temperatures in your house, and that is a problem during the hottest days of the year. If you use a heat pump, it is even possible that you’ve accidentally switched it over to its heating mode.

In either case, you can fix the issue with a quick resetting of your thermostat. What about the circuit breaker, though? Did you know that your AC system has 2 units, the indoor and the outdoor, that operate (almost surely) on separate circuits? If the breaker for the outdoor unit’s circuit trips, then it will leave your indoor unit to act as a fan. Simply flipping a switch to get the outdoor unit back on will fix this problem.

More Serious Issues

Unfortunately, not all homeowners experiencing this system are going to find such quick fixes. It is possible that a refrigerant leak is causing your system to blow warm air, for instance, and that is something that only a trained professional can address. The refrigerant in your system plays a vital role in the cooling process, evaporating in the indoor coil and drawing heat out of the surrounding it. If the system is leaking, it is not going to effectively cool the air. Continuing to run it can result in very serious damages.

Even an issue like leaky ductwork could lead to warm air blowing from the vents in your home. If your air ducts are leaking, then they can pull unconditioned air into the system from spaces such as the attic or the space between your walls. You cannot seal your ductwork on your own, though. Professional duct sealing is the only fix for leaky ductwork.

Goettl Air Conditioning is here for all of your AC repair needs.

2.7.24Jay Cruz, technician, arrived on time today to service/check my ac/heating. Jay arrived timely and was friendly. Jay checked my inside unit, ceiling vents, etc and he made some recommendations. He was easy to talk to and very professional. He will be sending me an email with the recommendations and costs associated so that I can save the money to have these taken care of. I will say, no other technician has been as proficient as Jay.Yesterday, 2.6.24, I received a call from Betty. Betty was also very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She listened to me and made recommendations and advice. By the end if the call, I felt like Betty was a friend.Thank you to Jay and Betty!Late one evening I was washing clothes. Daughter noticed water on floor under washer. I was so upset and worried about finding someone to fix the problem, whatever it was, and especially the cost. Goettl this the rescue! Namely, their employee/plumber, Chris! The next day, Chris came, found the clog in my pipes, and…voilà! We joined their $14.95 per month plan and that was all we paid for a job well done! Thank you!3.26.24Tyler Leija was great! He checked my drain pipe outside with a camera. Advised everything was clear. He checked my kitchen and master bathroom sinks and toilet. Tyler was friendly, but professional. Thank you.4.17.24Frank M arrived here on time. He was friendly and professional. He explained everything he was going to do today.

Roy A. was a pleasure to work with. He thoroughly and expertly explained all of the issues with my system with pictures and videos. He was transparent about the remediation options available to me and patiently reviewed each option with me. The install team, Daniel and Roy, were equally as awesome. They too were extremely knowledgeable, patient with my questions, and worked diligently to get my new unit up and running safely in one day. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
