How to Repair the HVAC

You don’t need to be an expert on air conditioners to tell when something is wrong. If your unit won’t turn on, it’s making strange noises, or it can’t keep your house cool, you know it needs to be repaired. There are a few things you can check or handle on your own. These include:

Check your breaker

If the unit won’t come on at all, your breaker could have tripped. This is a simple fix, yet sometimes overlooked. Trying this before you call a professional can save you money, frustration, and even a little bit of embarrassment.

Change your filter

A variety of air conditioner repairs can be avoided by consistently changing your filter. If your filter is dirty and clogged, this could be the issue with your unit. Your unit could simply be experiencing a lack of airflow, which can then cause a lack of cooling efficiency with the system. Be sure to check and change yours often, about every three months.

Give the outside unit a good cleaning

The system may just be dirty and clogged with debris. On the outside unit, remove any debris from inside or near the unit. Sometimes, leaves and sticks are the true problem- not a mechanical issue. What a simple fix!

If these ideas don’t work, it’s time to call in an expert. The modern air conditioning system is an intricate piece of mechanical equipment. You cannot learn all about it by watching a few YouTube videos; it takes years of training as well as specialized tools to repair it correctly. Things like replacing a motor or sealing a refrigerant leak aren’t easy to do. Can you do it yourself? When it comes to any and all air conditioning repair projects, the answer is almost always no. Almost all AC repairs require a professional HVAC technician.

An air conditioning repair is simply too important to mess up, yet it’s incredibly complicated. It is easy for someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing to make a mistake.
