Spring is here, which means that temperatures are going up and you’ll probably be using your air conditioner for the first time in a while. This means you’ll have to be on the lookout for problems with our air conditioning. Spring and summer are the times you’ll need it to work the most, so it’s important to make your system is in top shape. Here are some things to look out for when you’re looking at your air conditioning.
The Fuse Box
When you go to turn your air conditioner and it’s not working, the first thing you should check is your fuse box. Your air conditioner may have blown a fuse, which could cause some problems so it’s important to check it out. You have to go to your home’s electrical panel and look at the switch that corresponds to your air conditioning. See if flipping the switch on and off has any effect on your air conditioner. If the circuit’s connection was the problem, then doing this might reset the connection.
Sometimes you may be wondering why your central air system isn’t getting the power it needs to function. If this is the case, you should try to turn on the fan and if it starts regularly, you’ll know that it’s not an issue with power. It may be that there’s an issue with your thermostat, so look out for that too before you ultimately decide what the issue is.
A thermostat malfunctioning is one of the most common problems your cooling system will experience. Since your thermostat plays such a big role in your home’s cooling system, it’s important that it’s in good shape. Make sure there isn’t any physical damage to your thermostat and that you didn’t mistakenly switch it to a higher temperature than you thought. If you still notice your home isn’t cooling properly, it could be that your thermostat’s batteries aren’t working. Luckily even if you need to replace your thermostat, the process is simple so you can do it yourself.
