During the dog days of summer, air conditioners keep the environment cool so that the scorching heat is not unbearable. The blistering winds of winter, on the other hand, keeps the air conditioner functioning as well. Air conditioners not only cool their surroundings, they also provide heat when outside temperatures are freezing.
But imagine this: What if your air conditioner stops heating or cooling your room? What will you do? Take a trip to the store to buy a new one? Or get it fixed by a professional? But what if you are saving? If your AC stops heating or cooling, there are things that you can do to skip spending your hard-earned money.
1. If the AC stops cooling or heating, check your filter. One of the reasons why your air is not hot or cool is a dirty filter. After several months of use, the filters can become clogged with dust and other particulate contaminants that will keep the AC from cooling or heating. Cleaning the filter does not need the assistance of a professional. If you are a first timer, YouTube videos can help. If you have an extra air filter, the better. Locate where the air filter is. Retrieve the clogged air filter and replace it with a new one.
2. Another factor that can keep your AC from cooling or heating is a malfunctioned thermostat. You probably have overdone it and that’s why the thermostat is no longer working. You may also want to look into its batteries. Replace the batteries if they need to be changed, then check to see if it works. If it does, problem solved. If not, assistance from a professional is needed.
Despite the intention of wanting to save your money, the problem can still persist. This time, you might want to consider spending a little more.
3. If you think your AC is not cooling or heating enough, you might want to consider replacing the actual unit. The size of the room has to correspond to the size of the unit. A smaller unit is not enough to cool a bigger room. Even if it is the highest quality AC, it won’t work in a bigger room.
4. Problems like leaking, a clogged drain pipe, and weird noises need the expertise of professionals. These problems can be associated with the mechanical aspect of the air conditioning unit. Fixing it yourself will only worsen the condition. It is best that a professional handles the situation.
The ability of air conditioning units to heat and cool your environments is truly a wonder. Taking simple steps are good for fixing simple problems. But if the problem is bigger, simple measures won’t work. Calling the professionals is your best bet.
