If your AC unit acts up or stops working, there are some things you can check before you call for emergency assistance.
- Inspect the thermostat – check the settings to be sure that someone didn’t turn on the heat or otherwise interfere with your regular settings. The thermostat could also need a battery which will cause it to work irregularly or not at all.
- Check the circuit breakers – if the AC unit won’t power on, there could be an issue with the circuit breaker. It can be hard to tell if the breaker has been tripped especially if your HVAC unit operates on its own circuit. Make sure that all the breakers are on and try to operate the AC unit again.
- Look at the filter – a dirty clogged filter could also be the culprit. It can make your AC unit work a lot harder than it should. If changing or cleaning the filter doesn’t help, then the problem could be the duct work.
- If you can access your air ducts, check them for dirt and debris which may be causing your AC system to work too hard.
If none of these things seems to be the problem, it’s time to call for help. While you are waiting, it’s important to stay calm and above all, don’t try to fix the unit yourself.
