But if nothing is happening when you do that and you know that the indoor unit is working just fine, then it is time to call a professional to come and take a look.
Warm Air from Vents
When the air that is coming out of your vents is blowing warm air, there could be a number of things happening that could cause this issue. But one of those things this that your compressor is failing. This happens when the compressor can’t pump the cooling gas through the system. When it can’t get the cooling gas through the system it can’t get the air-cooled to cool down your house. that is when warm air is blowing out of the vents instead of cool air.
