The changing weather in Boynton Beach can mean a host of things, from the changing seasons to flicking off the switch of your air conditioner for the cooler months. Of course, whole home comfort is your year-round goal, but sometimes our heating and cooling equipment doesn’t feel like helping us out. That doesn’t mean that you’re automatically destined for AC repair though.
When your air conditioner fails to work or you notice it acting weirdly, there are a few things you can check on before calling in the experts at A2Z Air Inc for AC repair. Here are a couple troubleshooting tips to try before giving us a call.
1) Check your thermostat
This is one of the easiest checks that homeowners can do on their own, and might solve the issue more than they’d like to admit. Ensure your thermostat is:
- Set to “cool”
- Programmed to be around room temperature
- Utilizing a new battery
2) Look at the air conditioner filter
Dirty filters can cause air conditioners to act out of the ordinary, making them shut down without notice and without making a peep. Air conditioner filters have been the cause for many AC repair calls in the past, but there’s no reason to pick up the phone when you can exchange it yourself. Not to mention that a dirty air conditioner filter diminishes your system’s efficiency and inhibits airflow.
3) Find and inspect your air conditioner’s switches
Most of the time, switches to your air conditioner are found:
- Around the air conditioner itself and normally look like your stereotypical light switch.
- At your circuit breaker panel. Identify the breaker that controls your air conditioner and determine if it is in the middle position or the Off position. If it is, cycle the breaker to Off and then re-set it back to the On position.
4) Open all of your vents
A routine error among homeowners is to close vents in unused rooms, but this could actually lead to a need for AC repair. Closing these vents may potentially cause your system to be less efficient and turn off because of added airflow pressure.
If you’ve done these four troubleshooting tips and still aren’t having any luck getting your system back up and running, it’s probably time to give us a call.
