Put Down the Phone! 3 Fixes to Try Before Calling the Professionals
During the stifling heat of summer, a broken air conditioner is devastating. Not only will the repair cost you, but you’ll have to schedule an appointment and wait in the heat for help!
Of course, the first thing on your mind is getting it fixed as soon as possible. However, before calling in the professionals, there are a few simple fixes you can try yourself.
Check Your Thermostat
Thermostats are a wonderful thing. They allow you to instantly adjust the temperature in your home. If you find your home temperature on the rise, the first place to start is the thermostat. Check that someone has not helped themselves to adjusting the temperature of your home. If the thermostat appears broken or not working, check the batteries. Many people find themselves feeling foolish for paying a service tech to come change batteries.
Inspect Your Breaker Box
Another common issue leading to a non-working air conditioner is a blown fuse. Checking your breaker box is a quick and easy fix for almost any homeowner.
If your air conditioner seems like it is trying to run, but just cannot keep up or is simply making a lot of noise, check for debris. The outside unit should be kept clear of debris and dirt. Simply, remove any leaves or large limbs and spray down with a hose. Inside, be sure to check for a dirty filter and change the filter every 30-45 days.
If after performing these simple fixes, your air conditioner is still experiencing problems, it’s time to call in a professional.
