A/C not cooling? There could be several reason why. First, to get it working again, try troubleshooting steps that you can do yourself:
- Change your air filter. Clogged filters are an HVAC systems worst enemy and cause for 80% of all service calls. A clogged filter makes your A/C system have to work twice as hard to deliver the cool air you desire.
- Check the battery in your thermostat. Thermostats have a lifetime…many times one shorter than that of your system. It’s not a bad idea to replace it once every 5-7 years to maintain efficient operation of your HVAC system.
- Check the breaker. Storms and utility work in your area can cause power surges. Check the breaker box to ensure your A/C hasn’t tripped. Be sure to turn the A/C off at the thermostat first, then switch the breaker back on before turning the stat back on.
