Having your air conditioner break down in the middle of a hot day, or at any time, can be miserable, and unless you’re a native of the Arizona Desert who can put up with a little heat, you’ve got yourself a problem you need to be fixed and fast. Now, calling for professional help right away may seem like the only way to proceed in this scenario, but before you pick up the phone, give your system a look for yourself. After all, it’d be a shame to have to pay professionals to come over to fix a simple problem you could have just as easily solved on your own, right?
If your AC breaks down suddenly, it’s highly possible something happened not too long ago that caused it to malfunction. The first thing you need to check is if it’s power got somehow disconnected; perhaps the plug detached, or maybe a circuit breaker tripped that was previously feeding power to your AC. If it’s not a power issue, then try checking your thermostat. It’s quite possible for it to have thermostat batteries dead, which would explain why setting or resetting it seems not to take effect. Lastly, check your air vents and air filter. Maybe something got stuck inside that was obstructing your airflow, or your filter is just dirty.
MAINTAINING YOUR HVAC
Dunes heating and air conditioning know there are a lot of things you can do on a daily basis to make sure your AC system remains in perfect working condition. Even the simple act of wiping a dust cloth over it once a week could save you a lot of money in repairs and cleaning out vents. And why stop at just the indoor unit? You would be doing yourself a favor if you periodically check on the outdoor unit, keeping it free from debris and animals that want to take shelter inside, and changing your air filter when it was time.
