AC not working? Before you call a professional Edmonton emergency air conditioner repair company, try these 3 DIY AC repairs. You may not need to call an AC contractor after all!
1. Make sure your air conditioner is turned on
First thing’s first - if your AC is not working, check that it is turned on! This might seem simple but it’s very common for switches to get turned on/off by accident.
2. Check the batteries in your thermostat
One of the most common sources of air conditioner problems – the power. Be sure to check that the batteries in your thermostat are working, and change them if necessary. You would be surprised at how many times new batteries are all that is needed to fix an AC emergency!
3. Clean or Change the AC Filter
A dirty filter can cause your air conditioner to break down. That’s because a dirty filter restricts airflow, causing the unit to work harder and potentially overheat.
If your AC will run without a filter, try pulling it out. If the air conditioner runs like normal without the filter then you have found the issue! Simply clean or replace the filter to resolve your AC emergency.
