If you find yourself repeatedly investing in air conditioning repairs, you might be wondering why your air conditioner is still malfunctioning. Dealing with persistent air conditioner issues can be quite frustrating. The good news is that even the most perplexing air conditioner problems often have simple solutions if you know where to look. Today, we at Hal Mechanical would like to further discuss why the AC is likely not operating despite repairs.
AC Failing to Turn On Electrical Connections
If your air conditioner refuses to turn on, several factors could be at play. Although it may seem obvious, double-check that your AC unit is properly plugged in. Over time, the unit’s plug can become loose. If the plug is secure, inspect the circuit breaker. If there was a power surge, the circuit breaker might have tripped to safeguard your unit from damage. Resetting the breaker could potentially resolve the issue. If neither of these steps works, it’s advisable to seek assistance from a qualified electrician, and our team can assist you with that.
Surprisingly, the problem causing your air conditioner not to turn on may not be the air conditioner unit itself but rather the thermostat. If your thermostat isn’t correctly connected to your air conditioner, it won’t send the signal to turn on when necessary. Sometimes, simply replacing the batteries in your thermostat is enough to fix the problem. In other cases, professional calibration may be required. Regardless, rectifying thermostat issues is usually straightforward and can restore your air conditioner’s functionality.
Another possibility is that your air conditioner is experiencing poor airflow either into or out of the system. A dirty air filter can obstruct airflow into the unit, forcing your air conditioner to work harder in its attempts to cool your home. Try replacing the air filter to see if it improves the situation. If that doesn’t help, there may be issues with airflow within the system or with the ductwork, causing air to blow back into your home instead of circulating properly. If you previously closed off air vents to redirect airflow, consider reopening them, as the air may be accumulating within the system. Additionally, there might be significant holes in your ductwork, allowing air to escape before reaching your home. This places additional strain on your air conditioner and can lead to system breakdowns due to the increased stress.
