We’re nearing the end of summer and our air conditioning units have been working hard for several months. Inevitably, something may go wrong in these final weeks before you decide to switch it off for the fall season. Below are three of the most common problems you may face with your central air conditioner. Should you run into one of these issues, you could save money and time by trying one of these DIY AC troubleshooting and repair techniques:
Possible Causes: If you can’t get the air conditioning system to activate at all, then you most likely have a blown circuit breaker or fuse, improperly set or faulty thermostat, or an internal switch being off.
Possible Causes: If you can hear your central air conditioner running but it doesn’t cool well, this could be a result of something blocking airflow anywhere in your system — filters, registers or compressors. Low refrigerant levels could also be the culprit. Without the right refrigerant level, heat and humidity cannot efficiently be removed from the air.
Possible Causes: Usually poor air flow results from a dirty air filter or ductwork that has become blocked, crimped, or even disconnected.
Cleaning your air conditioner is something you can do on your own, provided you have a basic understanding of the parts of your unit. However, there comes a time when you need to seek out professional service. If you’ve already done basic AC troubleshooting and the problem still exists, consider calling us for help.
