Your Home Air Conditioner Isn’t Working? Don’t panic!

You come home from work or wake up one morning, and your home air conditioning system doesn’t seem to be working? Don’t panic! Automatic Air Corporation, is here to help you.

When we get a call from a Louisville, KY homeowner who says their air conditioner is not working, many times we find the air conditioner is fine.

Sometimes it’s the thermostat, but more often than not, it’s some other issue causing the problem.

Before you panic and call your HVAC company, make sure your air filters are clean. If your air filter is clogged with dust, it can cause the air conditioning system to not work as effectively, or at all. A dirty filter also hurts the efficiency and reliability of your HVAC system(s). Consistently dirty filters will also shorten the life of your system.

Once you have confirmed that your filters are clean you should check to make sure you don’t have a blown fuse or tripped breaker. If that looks ok, then the next step is to check the thermostat.

Sometimes, your thermostat may simply be set incorrectly, especially in the spring and fall. If you need air conditioning, make sure the thermostat is set to “Cool” and that the temperature setting is adjusted properly. Of course, if you need heat, you need to set thermostat is set to “Heat”, and also make sure the temperature setting is correct.

Also be sure to check the batteries, if you have an energy-saving thermostat.

Many of the digital models today are battery operated units. If the above suggestions doesn’t solve your issue, look in the owner’s manual for setting instructions.
