Picture this: it’s the hottest day of the summer and you wake up to a broken air conditioning system, what do you do? It always seems as though our gadgets and gizmos break down when we need them the most, but you don’t have to panic. Here are a few of the most common air conditioning problems with some ways you can troubleshoot them:
- The Condenser Isn’t Running: one of the most common causes for this problem is power failure. Check to make sure the unit is plugged in and if it is, check for blown fuses or a tripped circuit breaker.
- Inadequate Cooling: if you’ve been running your system all day and the house doesn’t seem to be getting any cooler, try lowering the thermostat by 5 degrees. If you still don’t see results, you might have a dirty evaporator. Clean it out and let it run for a few more hours.
- The Unit Turns On and Off Constantly: just like most problems with the condenser, if your system is turning on and off repeatedly a dirty or blocked unit could be the cause.
If any of these problems persist, be sure to call on the experts at Aspen Air Conditioning. We specialize in air conditioning service, maintenance, installation and repairs for the entire Southeast Florida region.
