You immediately start to think about what you can do to fix it and how long you’ll have to deal with the heat. But don’t worry, because Automatic Air is here with some of the most common reasons why your air conditioner might be acting up.

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 your have checked your air filters, and confirmed that they are clean, you should check to make sure that you don’t have either a blown fuse or tripped breaker. After checking these three things, if you still cannot find a solution, then it is time to call Automatic Air and have one of our professionals come out to inspect your air conditioning unit.
