Ac Repair

To have an air conditioner is not always a pleasant experience especially when it comes to repairing it. This is because when you call a professional it can be quite a costly affair. It is true that sometimes calling in a professional technician for a repair work becomes unavoidable but there are many other times when you can troubleshoot your appliance by yourself and keep away from costly repairs. If you study your air conditioner carefully you will realize that at times the repair work is really simple and can be undertaken with a little patience and acumen. One thing needs to be noted here before you begin any kind of troubleshooting is that you should go through the manufacturer’s manual very carefully.

There are some easy checks that you can perform by yourself before you call in a technician and most of the times these checks will prevent you from spending hundreds of dollars. Some of the things that you can do by yourself before you call in a technician.

Check the breaker: If you have several appliances like the light and the fan running on the same breaker chances are high that the breaker has tripped off and that is the reason the air conditioner has stopped functioning. All you have to do is replace the breaker. This will save you a lot of money and unnecessary harassment.

Examine the thermostat: It might be so that the batteries of the thermostat just need replacement. In that case, you will have to replace the old batteries with new ones. You should also check that the thermostat is set at “ON” and the temperature is adjusted below the room temperature.

You might not be aware of the fact but it is true that clean air filters in an air conditioner can keep a lot of problems at bay. So it is recommended that you clean and change the air filters at regular intervals.

Another important factor that can keep costly air conditioner repairs at bay is to give the system a thorough cleaning at regular intervals. You can clean the outside unit by freeing it from all kinds of debris and dirt.

However, when you notice any of the following symptoms in your air conditioner it will be better to get in touch with an expert technician. They are the following:

• Less air flow from the registers

• Strange and unusual noises coming out of the air conditioner when it is operating

• Moldy odors coming from the ductwork when the system is operating

• The air conditioner cycles on and off more frequently than usual

• The breaker in the air conditioner trips off more often

• The outdoor fan does not operate


Last but not the least, if you are really interested in keeping your air conditioner efficiently running without costly repairs the best way is to take good care of the system. Besides the DIY methods you should arrange for a yearly inspection of your system by a professional so that you do not have to meet with any unforeseen circumstances.
