Why You Should Consider Upgrading to the Lennox Elite Series EL16XC1 Air Conditioner

Posted: 2021-07-27

Exposure to summer heat can affect you in many negative ways. It can cause heat exhaustion, cramps, and heatstroke. If you have preexisting chronic conditions, such as various respiratory, cerebral, and cardiovascular diseases, it is not safe to be exposed to extreme heat. For this reason, you need an air conditioner that can effectively give you comfort and protect you from the effects of heat exposure. But what if your old AC blows warm instead of cold air?

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your leading HVAC company in Vadnais Heights MN. For over forty years, we have been helping homeowners establish comfortable, energy-efficient homes.

Here are a couple of the reasons for your AC to blow warm air.

Refrigerant Leak

Your air conditioner’s refrigerant is responsible for absorbing heat from inside your home and transferring it outside. If your AC has an inadequate level of refrigerant, it will take much longer for your home to cool down since there is not enough refrigerant to take away the heat.

It is not easy to detect an air conditioner leaking refrigerant. For your safety, have a qualified technician inspect your system, locate the leaks, seal them off, and recharge your AC with the right amount of refrigerant. However, if the refrigerant leak is severe and has caused major damage to the compressor, it may be wiser to replace it with a new unit than trying to keep up with a faulty one.

Electrical Problems

When the outside unit loses power, the air conditioner will have issues distributing cooled air through the vents.  Therefore, you should check the circuit breaker, fuses, and switches. Simple issues like a tripped breaker can cause great discomfort, especially by shutting your AC down. The best thing to do is to check the circuit breaker and emergency shutoff switch. However, if you keep on having this issue, there could be a more serious electrical problem. For your safety, be sure to call a professional as soon as possible.

Here’s one of the air conditioners from Lennox that will put an end to your comfort issues during summer.
