When your home’s air conditioner goes out you want to get the problem solved as promptly as possible. Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help you do just that so you and your family can get back to enjoying life with a well-tuned air conditioner. Searching for what might be amiss with your air conditioner and if you should schedule an AC repair? Here’s a short checklist of common AC problems.
- First things first: check your home’s air filters. Old or inefficient air filters are common culprits for turning a perfectly functional and efficient air conditioner into a slow and inefficient one. How do you know if you should change your filters? If you can’t remember the last time you changed them, it’s almost certainly time for a switch. If you’re still not sure, remove the air filter and check for visible dirt. If there is visible dust or dirt, throw it out and put a new one in right away.
Check the air conditioner
- If your air filter is still clean, go outside and have a look at the air conditioner itself. Sometimes sticks, leaves, and other debris can become lodged in or build up around the housing. Check for these and other immediate signs that something may be amiss. Listen for loud or irregular sounds coming from the system as it runs. Though you should never try to make an AC repair on your own, you can trust your instincts to take note when something looks or sounds out of the ordinary.
Determine the length of the AC cycle
- An improper cooling cycle may be part of the problem. Listen to how long the air is running before it turns off. An air conditioner in good working order typically runs for longer periods of time and stays off for a similar period of time, rather than switching on and off in short bursts. An erratic AC cycle may be an sign of bigger problems that will require professional AC repair sooner rather than later.
Check your fuse box
- If the system shuts down, there may be a breaker flipped or a fuse blown. A tripped breaker may occur in bad weather, but if Oklahoma City hasn't been experiencing severe weather, there may be a more pressing problem that’s causing the breaker to trip. If the breaker in question gets tripped again soon after you flip it back on, call Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning at .
