Let’s take a look at some of the most common reasons your AC blows warm air:
- Clogged air filter. When your AC’s air filter becomes dirty and clogged, it can begin to impede airflow. This can cause system imbalances between your supply and return air ducts.
- Dirty coils. Like your air filter, the condenser and evaporator coils require routine cleaning. When dust and debris buildup on the coils, it doesn’t allow heat and cold to dissipate properly. This can lead to overheating.
- Frozen evaporator coil. The evaporator coil cools your air before it reaches the blower to be distributed into your home. If cool air is not efficiently distributed, the cool air can begin to freeze on the coils, disrupting the refrigerant cycle. The coil will not cool your air before it reaches the air handler, and this results in warm air circulation.
- Compressor fault. Your compressor pressurizes the refrigerant and pumps it through the refrigerant cycle. If it isn’t able to perform this function, then your evaporator coil will not operate properly, resulting in a lack of cool air.
