3 Things to Check when your AC Stops Working

The summer months can be challenging, and your AC unit can be the best way to keep you cool when the weather outside is scorching hot. You may feel that the air inside your home isn’t as cool as you’d like it to be. This could motivate you to seek the assistance of an HVAC professional. However, does your AC actually need repairing, or is this something you can fix on your own time? Knowing these 3 things to check when your AC stops working can save you time and money and without a call to a service company.

Check the Breakers

It’s not uncommon for the breaker in your home to trip and need resetting. If this happens, it can prevent your AC from coming on, and this will instantly cause your home to be uncomfortable.

Before you call on a repairman, simply check the breakers to ensure it hasn’t tripped, because this is something you can fix yourself.

Check the Thermostat

It’s important to look at the thermostat on your unit if the AC suddenly goes out of service. Be sure to check the batteries to ensure these are still working properly.

Consider replacing the batteries before calling a professional to look at your AC unit because this could fix the issue entirely.

Check the Filter

The last of the 3 things to check if your AC stops working is your filter. If you have a filter that is dirty or clogged it may need replacing. One sign that indicates this should be done is if the air in your home isn’t getting as cool as it should. We find that 75% of our service calls in the summer could have been prevented if the filter had been changed.

Doing this one simple thing could also reduce your energy costs as much as 5% or more annually.
