Is Your Air Conditioner Not Working?

Air Conditioner Not WorkingOrem summers can get really hot, and it always seems to be the middle of summer when your air conditioner seems to stop working.  There are a number of reasons that this might happen, ranging from simple mistakes to serious problems. Is your air conditioner not working? Here at Western Heating & Air, we have a few tips for what to do.

The Nature of the Problem

First of all, figure out what the problem is. Will the air conditioner simple refuse to turn on? Is it blowing air that’s warm instead of cold? Is it not getting as cold as you’d like it to? Determining the nature of the problem can help you know where to start.

Simple Issues

Start by looking at some of the basic potential problems. For example, if you have a window unit and it’s not running at all, check to see if it’s actually plugged in. Small children or pets can easily unplug an air conditioner by playing around it, or it might have gotten unplugged when you were searching for an available outlet. Settings can also be unexpectedly changed. If it’s only blowing warm air, check to see if the temperature has accidentally been turned up.

Ice Blockages

Another reason for the air conditioner not working might be that air flow is too low. This can cause ice to form inside of the AC unit, preventing cold air from coming out. Turn off the unit and let any ice melt. It might also be a good idea to check the fan belt.

Clean It Off

If the air filters of your air conditioner are covered with dust, dirt, and debris, they might be restricting airflow. Clean them off and try restarting the unit.

Unfortunately, if none of this is effective and you still have problems with your air conditioner not working, it’s probably time to call Orem, UT HVAC experts. Contact us at Western Heating & Air by calling 385-351-4347.

Tyler and Carter were efficient, helpful, and courteous. They walked us through our new system and explained everything so we could use and maintain the system after they left. Great experience!

Brady and LT (and the entire Western Heating & Air Team) have been amazing through a less than ideal scenario. Our outdoor unit with our ductless system was having issues and completely went down on two occasions. Once they figured out the issue, they got a warranty claim in process and quickly got the new unit installed (Brady and LT are true professionals and pros at what they do). Our family feels in good hands with Western Heating and Air, and appreciate all the compassion and hard work to help us through this less than ideal scenario with the problems we had with the outdoor unit. THANK YOU!
