Right now in Thornton, CO we are in the dog days of summer. Hot days, but cool nights. The hot days can get pretty tough, especially when many of us are working from home, and really feeling those hot days. Read the top 4 reasons why your AC is blowing hot air.
  1. Your Thermostat: the first place to check when your AC is blowing hot air is because something is up with your thermostat.  Especially if there are others living in your home, the AC could have been swapped out for heat, or turned off. Make sure your AC is running properly by calling in the pros at Cozy Comfort at 303-357-9807 or schedule online here.
  2. Airflow problems: Check your filter and make sure the filter is clean. A dirty air filter can prevent airflow from your unit outside and cause the condenser to freeze up, which will restrict airflow. An AC will not work properly if airflow cannot flow easily from the outside unit to your home. If changing your filter does not help the issue, call Cozy Comfort at 303-357-9807 or schedule online here.
  3. Low Refrigerant: Low refrigerant is a fairly common reason for AC units to blow warm air, but it is one that cannot be solved with DIY fixes. Professional help is surely needed to figure out and solve this problem. If the refrigerant is not leaking, then maybe the air ducts are. Chances are your ducts are hidden in your walls, attic, or basement, and for that reason, professional help will be necessary to get to the bottom of the problem.
  4. Dirty Unit: If you’ve already checked your thermostat, it may be time to clean. A dirty condenser unit or a dirty air filter could be the culprit. The AC needs a clear path to be able to deliver cool, refreshing air. If dirt or debris is blocking the way, the cool air is being stopped in its tracks.
