How To Troubleshoot A/C Problems

A lot of people depend on their air conditioners night and day to keep the house at a comfortable temperature. However, using your air conditioner 24/7 could result in a system failure. If your A/C unit breaks down on the hottest day of the year, don’t fret. Below are some tips on how you can troubleshoot the issue.

  • Make sure that the air conditioner is plugged into a power source.
  • Check to see if the thermostat is working properly. If not, it might simply need new batteries.
  • Clean the evaporator in your A/C unit. If so do so and realize that inadequate air is blowing, you may have an improperly sized air conditioner. 
  • Be sure to change your air filter. A dirty or clogged air filter can impede air flow. In the summer, the air filter should be changed every month.  
  • It is possible that certain pieces of furniture are blocking your air vents. Move furniture accordingly if needed.
