It’s summer time and time to prepare for those hot summer days! You turn on your air conditioner to cool your house, but you feel hot air blowing into all your rooms instead. It won’t be long into the season till you get upset with this. What could the issue be? Luckily we know a few reasons that could be the cause of the problem. This advice can be used for either in room or central air conditioners.
One reason for this issue could be that the air filter is clogged. An air filter’s job is to get rid of any dirt, dust, and other particles from the air before it gets blown into your house. If the filter gets dirty it will obstruct and clog the condensing coil, and you will feel hot air instead of cold.
The easiest solution for this is to replace the air filter. It should be changed regularly to prevent any issues in the near future. If your house has central air, we suggest you change your filter every 3 months. If you have in room air conditioners, we suggest you change your filter once a month.
Another quick solution would be to clean the condensing coil to prevent any accumulation of dirt and dust. One way to clean the coils would be to use a can of foam coil cleaner. Make sure the power is off to prevent any injuries.
Finally make sure that your thermostat is on the “Cool” setting and that it is working properly. If it is set to “Cool” but you are still feeling warm air, the thermostat may be faulty and you most likely need to get a new thermostat installed.
Once these issues have been resolved, you will finally be able to enjoy the summer without having to worry about the heat coming into your home!
