Why is there warm air coming out of the vents when the AC is on?

If your air conditioner is on and blowing out warm air, there are a few things that could be contributing to the issue. Depending on the severity of your issue, you may be able to fix your unit with a few simple changes. First, you should check that your thermostat is set correctly. Having your thermostat set at the wrong temperature can often be an easy way to not blow cool air. If that is set correctly, you can also check the cleanliness of your unit pieces such as the air filters and the condenser unit itself. Air flows best when uninterrupted by dirty air filters, so having a clear path is ideal for blowing the desired temperature’s air. There also could be some electrical issues happening that could be affecting the unit’s function. Simply resetting the record breaker may fix this. Another common problem that can cause the AC to blow warm air is the refrigerant level. This is something that a professional would also need to address, so having a company like Coastal Home Services in your corner is very beneficial to your home or business.
