Getting Warm Air From Your Vents? Your A/C Could Be Low on Refrigerant
If experts have it right, we’re in for a scorching hot summer here in Maryland – so if your air conditioner isn’t working the way it should, it’s probably best to take care of the problem sooner than later.
One key thing to check when you run your A/C through its paces in the coming weeks is the temperature of the air coming from your vents. If the air isn’t as cool as it should be – or if you notice ice forming on your outside central air conditioner lines after you’ve run it for a few hours – your A/C system could be leaking refrigerant.
Low refrigerant can your system to perform poorly – or fail altogether – which makes it a rather serious issue!
Refrigerant levels often drop due to small leaks in your compressor that you can’t see with the naked eye, so don’t try to diagnose the problem yourself; a good HVAC technician will typically check for leaks during an annual tune-up if they see that refrigerant levels are low.
If your air conditioner is blowing warm air, a refrigerant recharge may be all you need. But if you’ve recharged your system several times in recent years, it could be time to consider a high-efficiency air conditioner upgrade.
