#1: Check the Thermostat

Occasionally, the solution to your problem is as simple as replacing the batteries in your thermostat. Check for blinking lights or a symbol on it indicating the batteries need changing. 

#2: Inspect Your Air Filters

If you have dirty air filters, the temperature in your house won’t be as cool as you have it set to be. Changing air filters is relatively straightforward, and usually is part of the complete AC tune-up services that we offer in Flemington. During this service, we check for all sorts of other issues as well, such as:

  • Leaks
  • Electrical issues
  • Clean coils and refrigerant
  • Blockages
  • Etc.

#3: Look Over the Outdoor Unit

If you go outside and the blower is not working while the AC has been turned on, that’s a sign that there’s something wrong with your HVAC unit. However, if the fan is still working, the air conditioner is likely not the problem. 

#4: Consider the Outside Temperature

For older units especially, when the weather outside is too extreme, the air conditioner struggles to achieve maximum efficiency. If you determine this is the cause of your issues, the most likely solution would be to upgrade your air conditioner.

Like all major appliances, your air conditioner would benefit from annual tune-ups and occasional repair. However, not always are issues associated with it going to be caused by it. After checking through the above and they all check out, the problem may lay somewhere else besides your air conditioning system.
