Why Your AC Blows Warm Air

Monday, August 20th, 2018

man-on-couch-with-fanProblems with air conditioning systems can be very subtle, making them very hard to detect and allowing them to do real damage to the system over time. Today, we’re not talking about such subtle problems. Instead, we’ll be focusing on one of the most obvious problems that you can encounter with your air conditioner: an AC that is blowing warm air. The fact that the problem is obvious, though, doesn’t mean that it is simple to diagnose or resolve.

As you’ll see in the post that follows, there are actually a number of potential causes of this problem. The key to figuring out precisely why your air conditioner is blowing warm is to work with trained professionals that have experience in making such diagnoses.

Do I Have a Refrigerant Leak?

Monday, August 7th, 2017

man-with-fanThe honest answer to this question is: hopefully not. Just because you have a refrigerant leak does not mean that your air conditioner needs to be replaced entirely — typically — but it does mean that you may actually damage your system seriously simply because you do not realize that there is a leak to begin with. It is for this exact reason that you must schedule air conditioning repairs in Stamford, CT the moment that you realize that there is a leak.

In order to do that, of course, you must first learn to recognize the signs that there is a leak in your system to begin with. This is not always as simple as it sounds. While a refrigerant leak is a big problem, it is one that won’t cause your system to break down entirely immediately. The longer that it goes undetected, though, the greater the risk of serious damage to your air conditioner. We encourage you to keep the following tips in mind so that you can get out ahead of any such problems.

Why, and How, Is My AC Leaking Water?

Monday, July 10th, 2017

question-markWarm air blowing from your air conditioner or loud sounds developing are problems that you don’t want to encounter. However, they are also the types of problems that you may expect to run into from time to time with your air conditioning system. One issue that you may be completely caught off guard by is an air conditioner that is leaking water. After all, there is no water used in the AC that should be able to leak out of the system, right?

This may be true, but it certainly does not suggest that you are seeing things. There very well could be water pooling around your indoor air conditioning unit, and it very well may be coming from the AC itself. However, it is not exactly a “leak” in the way that you’d typically think of one. Here are a few of the reasons why you may discover a leaky air conditioner in Fairfield, CT.

Why Your AC May Blow Warm Air

Monday, May 15th, 2017

thermometer-in-the-redWhile Connecticut may not have famously hot summer weather the way that certain other areas in the country do, the temperatures can still get quite uncomfortable around here during the summer months. As much as well all look forward to shutting down our heaters for the final time at the close of each winter, we know that it is only a matter of time before we’re firing the ACs up. We also know that it gets hot enough around here for any air conditioning problems to be major points of concern.

One of the most alarming problems that homeowners may encounter with their air conditioners is a system that is blowing warm air. You don’t need to be a trained professional to realize that this means there is something wrong with your home cooling system. There is some good news here, though. The problem may not actually be as serious as it first seems. It could be, however, so diagnosing the problem accurately is very important.

AC FAQ: Is It Time for Repairs?

Monday, April 17th, 2017

ac-topviewChances are that you are really starting to get antsy waiting for the warm, sunny days of summer to arrive. Our winters are long and cold here in Connecticut, and we had some late season snowfall that really put a damper on things this year. At least we expect this from winter, though. Spring can be even tougher because, as we’ve seen, we can never really know what to expect in terms of winter. Fortunately, it won’t be long before things finally do really start to warm up.

Of course, summer can be pretty tough to enjoy fully if your air conditioner is not functioning properly. We’d love to set you up with an AC that is guaranteed to function perfectly at all times, but this is just not a possibility here in the real world. All air conditioners are subject to occasional operational problems. Keep an eye — and an ear — out for these common warning signs, and remember to schedule your AC repairs in Fairfield, CT at the first sign of trouble.

What Causes Air Conditioner Short Cycling

Monday, May 9th, 2016

If you ever hear your air conditioner turning on and off every couple of minutes, you have a pretty serious problem. That behavior is called short cycling, and it dramatically increases the wear and tear on the system. A unit that is left to short cycle for a prolonged period of time will be far more likely to have parts break down in groups, and will have a shorter lifespan overall. You should call for repairs as soon as possible if you notice your air conditioner behaving this way. If you want to prevent the issue from happening in the first place, though, you should know what causes it. Let’s take a look at the causes of short cycling.
