To help you keep your air conditioner is great condition at all times, we've put together a list of the most common AC problems and how you should respond to them:
The Unit Won't Turn On
- Best Case Scenario
If you air conditioner won't turn on, the first thing that you should so is make sure that it's not a simple problem with your thermostat. Check to make sure that your thermostat is set to the "cooling" position. If you have an automated thermostat, you'll want to check to make sure that it's not set to be turned off during this period. Before you call a professional, be sure to check your thermostat.
- Worst Case Scaenario
Once you determine that the thermostat is not causing the issue, the next thing you should rule out is that your AC isn't receiving power. Check to see if the circuit breaker has tripped. If your Vero Beach home's breakers trip frequently, contact a professional immediately to have the problem inspected.
You should always contact a professional to work on any electrical problems because working with your electrical system is extremely dangerous.
The Unit is Blowing Warm Air
- Best Case Scenario
If your AC starts to blow warm air, the problem is most likely being caused by the system's filters. If that's the cause, then the air conditioner is still producing cold air, but it isn't able to distribute it properly through the air ducts. Clean or change your air filters at least once every three months during the cooling season to avoid this.
- Worst Case Scenario
If your filters have been changed or cleaned, your outdoor unit could be malfunctioning. Contact our professional Vero Beach air conditioning contractors as soon as possible to have your air conditioning system inspected, and we'll get it back into excellent condition as soon as possible.
