Why Is My A/C Blowing Warm Air?

Home » Why Is My A/C Blowing Warm Air?


The last thing that you want is for your air conditioner to blow warm air during a heat wave or in the middle of summer. Find out what can cause this to happen.

Thermostat Is Set to “Heat”

  • This is more common than you may think, especially the first time you use your unit this season
  • Also check to make sure that your thermostat isn’t set to turn just the fan on instead of the air conditioner

Air Filter Is Dirty

  • Remember to change your air filter every 2-3 months and even more often if you have pets or allergies
  • If you don’t change your air filter, you won’t have proper air flow

Circuit Breaker

  • Check to see if your unit has lost power due to a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse
  • If the problem continues, contact a professional

Condenser Unit

  • Check your outside (condenser) unit and make sure that nothing is interfering with your system
  • Always keep dirt, leaves, and other debris away from your unit
  • Make sure that the condenser coils are clean

Refrigerant Leak

  • If you are low on refrigerant it means that you have a leak
  • Refrigerant runs in a closed loop, so always have a professional fix the leak before adding more
