When the weather gets hot and humid here in Rolesville, North Carolina, you look forward to turning on your air conditioner to keep your home cool and comfortable. However, if you turn it on and find that it’s not working, your family will be miserable. There are several reasons why your air conditioner might not be working, and they need to be addressed as soon as possible. Let’s look at a few possibilities.
It’s possible that the thermostat isn’t working properly or that the batteries need replacing. The air conditioner won’t even turn on if the thermostat can’t communicate with it. Make sure the thermostat is set to “on” and is on “cool”. Lower the temperature, and replace the batteries and see if it comes on. If it doesn’t, there is a problem with the thermostat.
Over time, dirt builds up on the evaporator or condenser coils. If there is a barrier of dirt on them, then they won’t be able to effectively absorb the hot air from your home and will just recirculate warm air over and over. Investing in a maintenance plan with us will prevent your evaporator or condenser coils from getting dirty. We will service your AC on a regular and timely basis and fix any issues before they become a problem.
Tripped Circuit Breaker
If you have too many appliances on the same electrical circuit, it might overload the system, shutting the entire circuit down. If your air conditioner is on that circuit and it trips, the AC isn’t going to work. Look at the electrical panel and see if one of the breakers is tripped. Be careful of having too many appliances on one circuit.
