It is hot and humid here in St. Cloud, Florida. If you enter your home expecting relief from the heat and only feel hot air blowing in, you know you have a problem! There are several reasons why your HVAC system is only blowing hot air. Let’s take a look at three of them and how they can be remedied to deliver cool air.
Low on Refrigerant
The refrigerant in your air conditioner is crucial for the cooling process. It absorbs hot air from inside of your home, and as it goes through the condenser and compressor, it releases that hot air to the outside. It then brings cool air back inside in a continuous loop. If there is a leak somewhere, then there won’t be enough refrigerant to absorb the heat. With regular maintenance, our technicians will detect any issues with the refrigerant before it becomes a problem.
Tripped Circuit Breaker
Your HVAC system uses an enormous amount of energy to power up. If there are other large appliances in use on the same circuit as the air conditioner, the combination could trip the breaker. In addition, if there is a sudden power surge in the electrical grid, that could also trip the circuit. You can check to see if a breaker has switched, or perhaps the capacitor that engages the motor has failed. Call us if you suspect there is an issue with your air conditioner.
Coils and Filters Are Dirty
If the HVAC system hasn’t been maintained regularly, coils and air filters accumulate dirt which then restricts vital airflow. While changing the air filter is a fairly simple task you can perform, cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils needs to be done by our trained technicians. Investing in a maintenance plan with us can help to prevent the above problems so that you will always have cool air when you need it the most!
