However, just like any other major appliances that you regularly use in your home, the machinery of your AC can develop problems, and regardless of how large or small those are, you need to have them repaired as soon as possible.

At Rapid Response Plumbing, Heating & Air, our Glenwood HVAC contractors can help you keep your air conditioner in the best condition possible at all times. There are come AC problems that a homeowner may be able to solve on their own, but others will require professional assistance.

Here are a few of the most common problems that homeowners encounter with their AC systems:

The Unit Will Not Turn On

If you’re air conditioning unit isn’t turning on, it could be a very simple problem: your thermostat simply isn’t set correctly.

If the problem is just your thermostat, you’ll be able to quickly resolve the issue. Check your Glenwood home’s thermostat and make sure that it’s set to the “cooling” position. if you have an automated thermostat, you’ll need to check to see that it’s not set to be off during this time. There’s also a chance that the thermostat needs to be re-calibrated, and that will require professional assistance.

If making adjustments to your thermostat doesn’t resolve the issue, chances are that your AC is not receiving power. Check to see if your circuit breaker has tripped. If the breaker trips repeatedly, don’t continue to turn it back on, and call a professional for AC repairs as soon as possible. Always contact a professional for any electrical work to ensure that you don’t injure yourself or damage your property.

The Unit Blows Warm Air

If your AC blows warm air, the problem is probably your air filters. In this case, the air conditioning unit is producing cold air, but it isn’t able to properly distribute it through your air ducts. Clean or change your air filters at least once every three months during the cooling season to avoid this.

If you have cleaned or replaced your air filters, then your Glenwood home’s air conditioner’s outdoor unit may be malfunctioning. Call us for an HVAC inspection if this is the case.

Your AC Coils Are Frozen

A frozen coil is most frequently an issue the airflow. Restrictions of air can be caused by dirty air filters or obstructed ducts. You may be able to clear away some debris on your own, but you should also have a professional clean your ducts regularly.
