Air Conditioner Not Turning On?

Are you having trouble with your air conditioner not turning on? At Quality Comfort we understand this can be a frustrating and potentially costly problem. But before you say "Alexa find an air conditioning company near me" there are a few things that you can check to see if you can locate the issue on your own.

We would recommend that you check to make sure that your thermostat is set to the "cool" setting position and that the temperature is set lower than the current room temperature in your home. If your thermostat is not set lower than the temperature in your home then your air conditioner will not turn on.

Next, we would recommend checking the air filter. A dirty or clogged-up air filter can cause your air conditioner to fail. If the filter is dirty then try to clean or replace the filter with a new one to see if that fixes the problem. A dirty air filter restricts airflow which could cause your air conditioning system to freeze up. If you see ice anywhere on your system we would recommend turning it off until all the ice has melted away. It is important to make sure your filter is clean or it could cause your system to freeze up or make your blower motor heat up and burn up which can be a costly preventable mistake.

You could also check the outdoor unit to make sure that the AC is running properly and there is no visible ice. If the unit is not running at all, it could be due to a tripped circuit breaker. Check the circuit breaker and your air conditioner's emergency float switch usually located near the air handler and see if the air conditioner's drain line has clogged up and tripped. The float switch can cause your air conditioner to not turn on. We would recommend lifting up the float and looking in the PVC pipe and making sure it is not full of water.
