Why Is Your AC Blowing Warm Air?

As a resident of West Michigan and the surrounding area, you know how quickly the weather can change. In the morning, it might be freezing cold with frost on your windows. By midday, it can turn sweltering hot with high humidity, making you sweat even in the shade. Then, by evening, the temperature can drop just as fast, making you reach for a sweater and head inside from your backyard barbecue.

With such extreme temperature swings, it’s essential to have a reliable heating and air conditioning system. Without central air, you could be sweating through the summer, and without a good furnace, you could be shivering on cold winter nights.

You Rely on Your AC

No matter what part of West Michigan, and surrounding area you call home, you rely on your air conditioning system to keep you cool and comfortable when the temperatures start to rise. But chances are you have not used your AC system since the temperatures dropped last fall, so how do you know the unit is still working properly?

The best way to check the operation of your AC system is to use it, so fire it up and make sure it’s still working the way it should. If all goes as planned, you will quickly feel the indoor air temperature plummet, but what does it mean if you feel nothing but warm air?

What Does It Mean When Your AC Blows Warm Air?

If the air conditioning in your West Michigan, and surrounding area home is blowing nothing but warm air, it is time to diagnose the problem and get it fixed — before the temperatures start to rise and your family starts to sweat. A number of things can cause a previously functioning AC system to start blowing warm air, so it is best to take a step-by-step approach to the issue.

A clogged outdoor AC unit is perhaps the most common cause of the system blowing warm air, so that’s the best place to start. An accumulation of downed tree branches, leaves, and other debris may have blocked the outdoor system, so check the unit carefully and look for blockages and other damage. Carefully clear away anything blocking the system, then restart the unit and see if the AC is now blowing cold air.

A lack of power to the outdoor AC unit could also cause the air conditioning to blow hot air, and that should be your next step. You may need to power cycle the outdoor unit, restart your indoor AC system and check the temperature of the air to make sure it is sufficiently cool.

If the above steps do not put your AC system back to work, it’s time to call for professional help. Having your AC system repaired now, before the hottest days of summer, can save you a lot of time and ensure your family will stay cool and comfortable all season long.
