Why Isn't My Home AC Blowing Out Cold Air?

Now that it's the summer, chances are you're relying on your central air conditioner heavily to stay cool. Unfortunately, on the first blistering day of summer, many homeowners find that their home AC is no longer blowing out cold air. If your home AC isn't blowing out cold air, here are some tips that should help you identify the issue.

Why Isn't My Home AC Blowing Out Cold Air?

Many homeowners experience this issue at some point. You should call a HVAC technician immediately to prevent the problem from becoming incredibly serious. Here are a few common reasons that air conditioners stop blowing cold air:

  • Dirty air filters: If the air filter is dirty, the debris will end up blocking airflow. This will prevent a normal flow of cool and conditioned home from going back into your home. Check and replace the air filters if they are very dirty.
  • Faulty parts: The condenser or compressor could be broken if the home AC is no longer blowing out cold air. The condenser removes heat from the air. Therefore, if the condenser isn't working, the home AC may blow out warm air into your home instead of cold air.
  • Low refrigerant levels: If the refrigerant is low or empty, this may be a reason the air conditioner doesn't blow cold air. Coolant is needed for the system to remove heat from air.
