Central Air Conditioner Problems & Solutions
The Unit Does Not Come On
An air conditioning system may fail to operate at the beginning of the cooling season. The unit will not come on if the thermostat is defective or set improperly. Another potential issue may be that your unit is not receiving electrical power.
Check the Thermostat
Verify that your thermostat selector is set in the “cooling” position. Some systems have a built-in timer that delays the activation of the equipment. Wait several minutes for the timer to complete its cycle, and adjust the thermostat several degrees below the temperature inside your home. If the thermostat requires calibration. Call Appliance Guard at (310) 318-3538
Check the Power
You should also verify that the appliance is receiving power. Locate your main fuse panel, and determine whether the fuse or circuit breaker for the equipment has blown or tripped. Replace a blown fuse with one that has the same amperage, or reset the circuit breaker. Some units have a breaker panel located near the outside unit. Verify that the breaker inside this electrical box is on or the quick disconnect is inserted properly. If the system continues to have electrical problems, you need the assistance of an experienced repair technician. Call Appliance Guard at (310) 318-3538
The Unit Blows Warm Air
One possible reason that HVAC systems blow warm air is dirty filters. The system is producing cold air but it cannot flow through the duct work. Clean air filters protect your equipment and help it perform properly. HVAC systems work harder as the outside ambient temperatures approach triple digits and may not cool as effectively as you desire. You should also verify that the outside unit is running. If the outdoor unit is on, ensure that leaves and other debris are not obstructing the airflow. An air conditioner that blows warm air can be a sign of insufficient refrigerant. Only licensed air conditioning repair technicians can replenish HVAC coolant.
