Steps to Take Before Calling on an AC Repair Service

A heat wave has taken over much of the country, and countless air conditioning units are failing as a result. They are simply unable to keep up with the workload any longer. Before calling for Air Conditioning Repair Lakeland, however, there are certain steps every homeowner should take. Following are some of these steps.

Check the Thermostat

The air conditioning unit may not be cooling to the desired temperature simply because someone in the home decided to change the setting. Furthermore, the unit may have been shut off or it may simply be a setting has been changed and the fan isn't blowing. If these items have been checked and the unit still isn't working, test the batteries. It may be time to change them and homeowners find it very helpful to know this before calling for Air Conditioning repair Lakeland.

Replace the Air Filters

Filters that are dirty or clogged can prevent the unit from operating properly. Be sure to change these filters regularly as part of the Air Conditioning Maintenance Lakeland routine. When air cannot flow through the system properly, it won't run efficiently and it may lead to a unit icing over.

Examine the Registers

A person could become cold in one room and shut the register. Make certain this isn't the case, particularly when some rooms are cooling and others are not. Dirty registers may also interfere with proper air flow, so be sure they are cleaned regularly.

Remove Any Ice That Has Built Up

A unit covered in ice cannot run as intended. If there is ice around the outside unit, turn the system off. A fan may be used to melt the ice or it may be allowed to sit and thaw naturally.

 

Check the Breaker

Something may lead to the breaker shutting off and the system not running. During Air Conditioning installation Lakeland, many companies choose to put the AC unit on a separate breaker. If this is the case and the breaker has tripped, turn it back on. If it shuts off immediately, call for a repair. Something is wrong with the system or wiring. However, if the system runs, it may simply be a one-time thing.

In the event these steps don't help, do not hesitate to call on an air conditioning repair service. When temperatures soar, a person's health may suffer and this is especially true of individuals who have pre-existing health conditions along with the very young and the elderly.
