When it’s hot outside, you can’t wait to get inside and feel that cool air! But have you ever experienced a broken A/C? The fan still works, but the air coming out of your vents just isn’t cold and the a/c feel warm! Meaning you can hear and feel the air conditioner running, but the temperature in your home isn’t getting any cooler! In this post, we’ll take a look at a few things you can try to fix the issue and get comfortable again!
CHECK THE THERMOSTAT
It may sound silly, but yes sometimes the solution is as simple as checking your thermostat. Is it in the “cool” setting? Yes – this happens. Sometimes, homeowners have it set on “heat” by mistake. Bonus tip: make sure your thermostat isn’t low on batteries!
A clogged or dirty filter can make your HVAC unit work harder than it needs to. This could force the cooling element to turn off, resulting in warm air. Replacing the filters is easy and inexpensive.
CHECK THE CONDENSER
If you need to call a professional to check out the problem, one of the first things we’ll check is the condenser. If your condenser is old, has a weak motor, or dirty coils, a simple clean-up or tune-up may be necessary to make sure your A/C is operating properly. One thing you can do is make sure to clear the area around your exterior unit of leaves or other debris.
RECHARGE THE REFRIGERANT
If your unit runs out of refrigerant, you’ll definitely need a professional technician to get it fixed. It’s possible that it’s leaking refrigerant, which can happen with age and a lot of use. The Bosworth Company in Kerrville can help remedy this issue.
The compressor is the part of your HVAC unit that circulates refrigerant to keep it cool. If the compressor isn’t working, your whole home will feel it. Another reason to call a pro.
