How do I know I have an AC Problem?
You know your home better than anybody. If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be acting right, chances are it isn’t. If you’re struggling to stay cool, your AC is louder than usual, or it just won’t turn on, give us a call—chances are something needs to be fixed.
What should I check before calling a pro?
Most AC problems are generally something a pro should look at. However, there are a few simple things you can look at yourself before picking up the phone.
- Make sure your thermostat is switched to “on.”
- Make sure your thermostat is set to “cool” rather than “heat” (yes, this happens far more often than you’d think).
- Make sure your thermostat has a fresh battery (consult your manual for information on how to change it)
- If your thermostat has any external sensors or equipment, make sure they are powered on and properly connected (some thermostats won’t switch on without them).
Air Conditioning FAQ
- How should I set my thermostat? Set your thermostat to a temperature that is comfortable for you, and no lower. Dropping your temperature further won’t cool your home any faster. If you have separate units for upstairs and downstairs, set your upstairs thermostat to your ideal temperature and your downstairs two degrees warmer for better balance.
- How long should my air conditioner last? An air conditioner will ideally last 15 to 20 years, and even longer when properly maintained. If your air conditioner is approaching this age, reach out to us to learn more about a full system replacement.
- How can I lower my cooling costs? Properly setting your thermostat is a huge part of saving money. However, you can also see significant gains in energy efficiency and savings by having your air conditioner periodically maintained and changing your air filter every two to three months.
