Troubleshooting Tips When Your Central Air Conditioning Won’t Turn On

 

Tips for when the temperature is rising and Your Central Air Conditioner Won't Turn On from Victory Heating, Air Conditioning and PlumbingSo the temperature is rising and your central air conditioning won't turn on.  What do you do?  There might be a quick and easy solution that you can do before you call us.  Here are some things to check when you are experiencing an issue.   If these don’t work give us a call and one of our highly skilled service technicians on our Rapid Repair Team will be dispatched to your home to resolve the issue.

 

Check Your Thermostat

Some thermostats have a range in which they turn on. The range on some thermostats can be 2 to 3 degrees.   If you set your thermostat to keep your home at 70 but it is reading 72 the range might be stopping it from turning on.  To check this decrease your optimal temperature down to 69 or 68 and see if the A/C turns on. 

If the A/C does not turn on check to make sure that the thermostat is operating properly.   Your thermostat’s battery may be low.  Check for a low battery indicator, if you thermostat has one, and replace the battery if necessary.  It might just be a good idea to replace the battery just to eliminate the thermostat as the issue.

 

Check the Filter

If your air conditioner’s filter is clogged it can stop it from running.  A clogged air filter is very damaging to your unit, making it work harder and shortening the life span of the unit.  It will also cost you money in increased utility bills.    Replace the air filter, or clean it if you have the washable kind, regularly. If you have pets you may have to replace it as frequently as monthly. Consult your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendations. 

 

Check the Air Conditioner’s Fuses and Circuit Breakers

We have had many experiences of fuses being tripped in bad summer storms or by accident when other work was being done in the home.  There are often a number of fuses & switches for your air conditioning unit so be sure to check them all.   Some units also have reset buttons.  It is a good idea to clearly label all the fuses and reset buttons. 

Also if a fuse is tripped, some units have a built in safety mechanism that prevents them from restarting immediately.  Check your owner’s manual to see if your unit has a built in safety.  If it does you may just need to wait the required amount of time before your unit restarts.

 

If these tips don’t work, contact us today and we’ll dispatch one of our technicians right away.
