Cooling Services FAQs
Check your thermostat and make sure it's set to cool and verify the temperature setting is lower than the temperature outside. Then determine if the problem is caused by a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. If your air conditioner turns on and your thermostat is adjusted correctly, but your system still doesn't cool, you might have a dirty or blocked air condenser. The first step is to inspect the exterior unit and clear up any trash or weeds that are obstructing airflow. After that, make sure your air filter is clean. The filter is frequently dusty, and when it inhibits airflow to the evaporator coil, the coil might freeze. If you’ve done all of these things and your AC still isn’t working, call in a professional.
Failing to keep up with your AC maintenance can lead to frequent breakdowns and a shorter working life. Even if nothing appears to be wrong, periodic maintenance might expose hidden faults in the system, allowing you to take remedial action before things become worse. Your HVAC professional will be able to discover any parts that are broken or worn out, as well as perform any essential repairs that, if left unattended, might become very costly.
If the air conditioner is on but no air is coming out of the vents, you're probably dealing with a fan capacitor that has reached the end of its useful life. Fan capacitors aid in the operation of your HVAC system's outdoor and interior fan motors, as well as the compressor. A bad capacitor needs to be replaced to ensure the proper function of your AC; it typically costs around $250 to replace your fan capacitor.
Yes, you should turn off your AC if it's not cooling. Continuing to run the AC when it's not working properly can cause further damage and increase energy consumption without any benefit. Before turning off the AC, it's a good idea to check if there are any obvious issues like a dirty filter or blocked vents that can be easily fixed. If the problem persists, it's best to call a professional technician to diagnose and repair the issue. Regular maintenance and timely repairs can help extend the life of your AC and ensure its optimal performance.
