Air Conditioning Repair

 In case you have a faulty air conditioner it is natural that you get in touch with a professional HVAC technician. However, there are certain things that you can check all by yourself to find out the fault. This way you will be saved from spending unnecessary amount for your AC repair. The first thing that you need to do is check out the symptoms carefully so that you can arrange for some fixes. There are some common symptoms that an air conditioner shows when it does not give the requisite cooling.

Some of things that you can do as a homeowner are the following:

 If the indoor fan does not run you can check if the thermostat has power or not. Mostly, the new age thermostat goes completely blank if there is no power to them.

There may be a case that there is good airflow from the condensing unit but the air is not adequately cold. In that case the problem may be with the outdoor unit. You will have to check if the condenser fan is running and if you can hear the compressor functioning. In case, you hear the compressor running but the condenser not running, then it is recommended that you switch off the unit immediately so that the compressor is not damaged any further.

 In case you find that your air conditioner is not turning on, the first thing that you need to do is check the outside unit to see whether the condenser is running properly and if the thermostat is set properly. You have to make sure that the unit is properly plugged in. The entire process might sound very simple but you may have to try a few trial and error methods to find out if the unit starts functioning. You can lower the temperature of the thermostat by 5 to 10 degrees and find out if the unit starts working. Another good idea is to go through the manual so that you do not end up making any undesirable mistakes.

 If your air conditioner is not cooling the air around you properly, you might have to check the outside unit for accumulated debris and weeds. Immediately you will have to clear the debris and dust particles that surrounds the area. The next thing that you must do is check the air filter. The best way to check if your air filter is clean is to pull out and see if you can see through it. If you are a frequent AC user it is pertinent that you change the air filters at regular intervals.

When you see that your air conditioner does not cool your home properly, it may be that your unit is not adequately sized. Always one needs to keep in mind that only a rightly sized unit can give your home the desired level of cooling.

 Similarly, there are different ways to repair your central air conditioner as well at home. But it is recommended in case of a central air conditioner it is a better idea to get in touch with a trained technician because a central system is a more complicated one.

Last but not the least, the best way to stay away from all sorts of repair is to carry out maintenance of your system at regular intervals.
