Why Is My AC Unit Blowing Out Hot Air?

HVAC troubleshooting helps you save time and money - and it’s easier than you think!

HVAC troubleshooting is an easy way to get your air conditioning system up and running without the help of a professional. Not only that, you’ll save money too! Here are the top reasons your air conditioner might be blowing hot air:

Restricted Airflow

Your AC needs adequate air pressure to move cool air around your home. Without it, the work can’t happen. The biggest culprits include:

  • Dirty air filters
  • Blocked air intake vents
  • Dirty coils
  • Blocked vents and registers
  • Grass and other debris blocking your outdoor unit

Most of these issues take a few minutes to clean out by hand, though some of them will require a professional. Make sure your system stays clear of debris by scheduling regular maintenance.

Frozen Compressor

Sometimes your unit freezes up and won’t run correctly. This usually occurs when there is a persistent airflow problem. Unfortunately, clearing things out might fix airflow, but your compressor is still an issue. The only solution is waiting several hours for components to thaw.

Electrical Problems

Is your outdoor unit running? Check your breakers to make sure it’s getting electricity. Can’t find one? Look for a single fuse somewhere near your inside unit. Sometimes they’re found screwed into light fixtures on a nearby wall or ceiling. If there isn’t a problem with the electricity and you can’t keep your outdoor unit running, it’s time to shut things down and call for emergency repairs.

Call G+S Heating Air Energy Services the next time HVAC troubleshooting doesn’t solve your air conditioning problems. We’ll get you back up and running in no time.
