Why is My A/C Blowing Hot Air?

Oh no! It’s a terrible feeling when you turn on your air conditioner only to find that the air coming out of your vents is hot instead of cold. It’s especially bad when you’re in the middle of a heatwave or a hot summer day and you just want to get cool.

There are a few things you can look at before you call for A/C repair. If you don’t want to do these yourself, call us at Turner’s Service Co and one of our air conditioning repair techs will be out soon! Before long, you’ll have the cool air you need once again. CALL NOW!

Check the Circuit Breaker

Did your circuit breaker flip without you knowing it? If something overwhelmed the circuit or the breaker needs replacing, this can happen a lot. In fact, it likely happens more often than you think! We get a lot of calls where the breaker is the problem instead of the A/C, so it’s worth checking yours before you get professional A/C repair!

Look at Your Thermostat Settings

Did someone accidentally bump up the temperature setting on your thermostat or, even worse, turn it to “Heat” instead of “Cool”? Make sure your settings are just where you want them before you panic about your air conditioner. 

If you have a programmable thermostat, make sure each setting is right. If you exchanged an “AM” for a “PM” that could explain your issues. If you can change your thermostat settings via your phone, make sure someone didn’t do just that as a joke or because they didn’t know what they were doing. If you’ve let a kid play with your phone recently, they could have wreaked havoc on your thermostat programming!

Change the Filter

All of the air that your system uses has to come through the filter. If the filter is clogged, the system won’t get the air that it needs and the results may feel like warm air coming out of your vents. Most filters need changing somewhere between once a month and once a quarter, depending on the particulars of your system and how often you use it. If you let it go too long, your A/C will struggle. 

Clean Your A/C

Dust and debris can gather on the evaporator coils in your outdoor A/C unit. Pull off the cover and clean these gently. Since these do the actual work of cooling air for your home, take time to get them good and clean, then run your system again. This small task can significantly improve your A/C’s functioning and its ability to effectively cool your home. Be sure to clean them gently so you don’t damage the unit. 

If these don’t work, call us for air conditioning repair right away. If yours can be fixed, we’ll get it done fast. If it can’t, we’ll have your A/C installation completed before you know it. Get cool at home again with Turner’s Service Co!

    Friendly and courteous, went beyond the initial problem to check all factors that may have contributed to my heating issue. Joe took several extra steps to isolate the issue and spent the necessary time to check all factors, from thermostat to element.

    We woke up on this cold morning with a broken furnace. Called Turners and they were out within a couple hours, found the issue, and repaired immediately. So pleased we won’t have to suffer the cold with no heat! Tim was awesome, super friendly, and would welcome his work anytime!
