What Causes an AC to Blow Warm Air?
As we mentioned, there are a number of reasons why your air conditioner may blow warm air. In a bit of an obvious, best case scenario, you may just want to check your thermostat before you contact a professional technician. It is possible that your set the temperature higher than you intended, or that you left the system in a fan-only mode.
If this is not the case, you could have leaky ductwork on your hands. If air from warm areas in your home is getting into the ductwork and is being mixed in with cooled air, then the air ultimately coming out of your vents may be warmer than you’d like. Professional duct sealing can resolve the problem.
Of course, you could also have a problem with refrigerant leaks. The refrigerant in your air conditioning system is evaporated in the evaporator coil, at which point heat is drawn out of the air surrounding it. If there is not enough refrigerant in the system, not enough heat will be removed. This could also lead to the icing of the evaporator coil, further impeding the cooling process.
