Summer is here and the heat is showing no signs of stopping. Now is the time to make sure that your AC unit is performing properly. Has your AC broken recently or is it not being cooperative? Check out the following tips to get it back up and running!
- Check Your Air Filter
Your air filter is like the gatekeeper between hot, dusty air and clean, cool bliss. It’s crucial to make sure you regularly replace your filter to keep it clean. A dirty or clogged filter will restrict air flow and cause your unit to malfunction. Studies have shown that dirty air filters can reduce your AC’s efficiency by up to 10%!
- Check Thermostat Batteries
Sometimes it’s the simplest solutions that are often overlooked. Replacing your batteries might be the only thing you need to fix!
- Check The Circuit Breaker
First locate you circuit breaker in the breaker box, then flip the switch on and off and see if your issue is fixed. Circuits can get messed up all the time so this can be a quick an easy fix if you know what to look for. If, however, you don’t notice any changes after flipping the switch, you might want to call an electrician to see if you have a more complex issue.
- Check The Coil On The Outside Of Your Machine
Although it can sometimes be hard to find, a clean condenser coil is what keeps your AC running efficiently. If you find that your condenser coil is covered in leaves, grass, or other debris you could break out the hose and gently spray it down. Sometimes all it takes is a little cleaning and maintenance to keep you AC performing at the top of it’s game.
