Why Is My Baton Rouge Air Conditioning Blowing Warm Air?

Tools on a HVAC
You want your Baton Rouge AC system to deliver cool, refreshing air quickly and efficiently. In our sweltering summers, you’ll notice an air conditioner that’s blowing warm air quickly. Here are some common causes you can investigate for this problem.

Lack of Maintenance

Your air conditioner needs annual maintenance to perform at its best. During this tune-up, our technicians clean all the components for improved operation. Without maintenance, your condenser coils can become caked with grime, making it impossible to cool effectively. You also need to change your AC filter regularly to allow proper airflow and effective cooling.

Incorrect Thermostat Settings

Check your thermostat to make sure it’s properly set to “Cool” and not “Fan.” This can happen especially easily if you have children in the house who may accidentally adjust your settings.

Refrigerant Leak

Your AC system needs a steady supply of refrigerant to keep your home cool. It doesn’t use up refrigerant, but the levels may be low if you have a leak. Frozen coils on your unit are one sign of low refrigerant levels. You need a professional repair for this issue.

Damaged Ductwork

If your ducts are damaged, the cool air from your system may escape into the attic or roof before it ever reaches your vents. We can inspect your ducts for damage and repair any leaks.

Lack of Electricity

Your air conditioner features both indoor and outdoor units. If you only have power to your indoor components, they’ll blow air through your ducts, but it won’t go through the proper cooling cycle outside. Check to see if your outdoor unit is humming and inspect your breakers if it’s not.

If your cooling system isn’t delivering the comfort that you need, it’s important to call a qualified professional to help you solve the problem. Our technicians provide prompt AC repair services to keep you cool throughout the warm-weather months.
