With summer coming up, most homeowners are depending on their home’s air conditioner to keep them cool during the hot and sunny months. Air conditioning is a must-have for Las Vegas residents during the summer, but air conditioning issues are among the most common problems for homeowners. Many times, homeowners simply forget about their air conditioners until that first scorching day hits, when maintenance problems are the most unbearable.
If your home air conditioning unit has been blowing hot air, follow these suggestions:
- Check the thermostat. It sounds silly, but make sure your thermostat is on the proper setting. Sometimes we forget about these little errors, and if the only thing that is wrong with your air conditioner is the settings, count yourself lucky.
- Inspect your air filters. A dirty air filter can obstruct your air conditioning ducts, even causing it to blow out hot air. Replace air filters every one to two months.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, then there may be some more serious damage that requires professional maintenance and repair. Professionals will be able to:
- Examine the unit for a leak. Freon is the coolant used in air conditioning units that cools the air before it enters your home. If the Freon has leaked out of your system, the air it blows out may be warm or hot.
- Check the compressor for damage. Located outside of your home, the compressor plays an integral role in providing cool air for your home. Experts will be able to repair damage to the compressor or install a new one.
