In Atlanta, GA, a good air conditioning system may be all that stands between you and the muggy Georgia summers. When functioning properly, your AC provides a cool, comfortable environment to come home to. Imagine the unpleasant surprise, however, when you turn on your AC and the fan starts up, but only warm air comes out. If this happens, you may need AC repair services, fast. Below we’ll walk you through a few examples of what may be causing this, but there may a deeper problem. For expert advice in Atlanta, simply call us today. The causes may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Low refrigerant: The refrigerant in your AC system cools the air, which is then blown into your home via a series of ducts. If the refrigerant runs low, the AC won’t produce cool air. A trained technician can recharge the refrigerant, as well as spotting and sealing any leaks in the system.
- Condenser shut down: The condenser works to compress the refrigerant, a key part of the cooling process. If it overheats or malfunctions, it may shut down, leaving warm air to blow through your system. The same thing may happen if leaves and other debris block the system’s air intakes.
- Thermostat: The thermostat serves to regulate the temperature in your household, allowing you to set the temperature to whatever you desire. In some cases, the thermostat may simply be on the wrong setting: “fan” instead of “cool,” for instance. In other cases, it may malfunction, heating your household instead of cooling it, in which case it will need to be fixed or replaced.
Regardless of the source of the problem, it pays to contact a qualified service technician to perform the repairs. A certified expert knows what to look for when it comes to AC systems blowing warm air, and can pinpoint the problem accurately.
