Can I Diagnose My AC Myself?
In general, it can be difficult to diagnose why your air conditioner isn’t working. In some cases, finding the cause of a malfunctioning AC can be dangerous! Between the electrical elements, refrigerant and moving parts, there are a lot of ways to hurt yourself if you’re not trained or experienced.
While a condensate leak or a frozen AC are more obvious issues than broken internal elements, knowing the problem is different than repairing the problem. Whether you’re able to pinpoint the issue yourself or not, you can be sure our team is on your side. Here are a few things you can do if you find yourself without AC.
Clean Blocked Vents
Your cooling system may not deliver cold air because of damaged ductwork. Blocked, leaking or kinked air ducts can prevent an AC from running efficiently.
It’s also important to replace your air filter every three months to make sure your system can recirculate air. If you suspect your ducts are damaged or you’re overdue for an AC tune-up – contact King Of Comfort to schedule an appointment.
Diagnose A Malfunctioning Thermostat
Your thermostat is designed to communicate with your heating and cooling system. If your system is not responding to the thermostat, check the unit for dead batteries.
Sometimes when the weather shifts, homeowners forget to set their thermostats for heating or cooling during the new season. Our technicians can troubleshoot your thermostat and identify issues or the need for system repairs.
Reset Tripped Circuit Breaker
Sometimes your air conditioner won’t turn on because of a tripped circuit breaker. When there’s an electrical issue like a loose connection or frayed wire, your breaker will trip and disconnect power. This is designed to keep your home safe from an electrical fire.
If your AC breaker trips, this could be a sign of an overworking unit, a short circuit or a broken part. It’s advised to get professional help as soon as you can and not run your AC after a breaker trip. Our technicians can inspect and repair your cooling system if your unit is the source of the problem.
