My air conditioner is blowing out hot air.

 

Do I need to change vats or is this a bigger problem?

Interesting tidbit.......just FYI any solicitation from the huddle on the following subjects usually ends badly.....by way of example.......maintaining a job, breathing without your mouth open, finding friendship because your lonely, relationships with in-animate objects, yard care and maintenance  and last but not least, house maintenance.

 

That being said, I would begin with turning it off......probably a good starting point.

If you are lucky it is frozen up. turn it off for a while.

 

Also change your filters.

 

Less lucky it is leaking and out of Freon or whatever you use.

 

Very unlucky you need it serviced or replaced.

You need to reset the thermostatic check valve.  Its what allows the cold air to blow in the summer and the warm air in the winter.

 

Take a standard leaf blower and stick in one of the ducts (after removing the register) and turn it up on high.  This works better the closer to the main unit you do it.  Let it run until you hear a "thud".  It wont be anything super loud but its more than a click.  This just get the check valve pointed in the right direction.

 

Once that's done you should be back in business.

I will change my vat first and if that doesn't work I will give this a try.

Is this like changing headlight fluid or rotating the air in your tires?

My house is way too cold right now.  I'm thinking of wrapping up in some blankets and taking a nap.

Fug you.

 

 

My bed is a puddle of sweat right now, and to top if off I got to go to work in a freaking hot warehouse.

Is the outside unit running? Is there ice on the lines?
