My AC is Blowing Hot Air, What Can I Do?
When you find that your AC system is blowing hot air, you may be wondering what you might be able to do to fix the issue before calling one of our service technicians. Blowing hot air is a common problem that can be fixed by our staff, but you can also take steps to see if you might be able to fix the problem. To get started, check outside to see if the fan is spinning. If it is spinning and you are still getting just hot air, you will need to turn the unit off and call a technician. If the fan is not spinning, you may have tripped a breaker, so go check out the breaker for power issues. Once you have reset the breaker, you will then need to check for cool air. It can take around 10 minutes for a unit to produce cool air so give it time.
