Troubleshooting Your AC Before You Call

HVAC Services in Orlando

Before you call our Longwood HVAC experts for AC repair or heating repair, you might want to try some DIY troubleshooting to fix the problem.

If you experience uneven heating or cooling:

  • Do you have zoned heating? If so, be sure the thermostat setting for that zone is cool or hot, depending on what you want, and that the fan is set to auto.
  • Check the air filters. Are they dirty? If they haven’t been replaced or cleaned in more than a month, do so.
  • Check all the supply and return air grilles to make sure they are unblocked, fully opened, and blowing air.
  • Check and see if your window treatments are adjusted to let in minimal light.
  • Active electronics in the room are often the cause of a rise in temperature.

Troubleshooting Tips if Your AC Is Not Cooling

If your AC isn't cooling at all, follow these steps to troubleshoot the issue and determine if professional assistance is needed:

  • Check the Thermostat: Ensure it's set to "cool" and the temperature is set lower than the current room temperature. Replace the batteries if necessary.
  • Inspect the Air Filter: A dirty or clogged air filter can restrict airflow, causing the AC to malfunction. Replace the filter if it appears dirty.
  • Examine the Circuit Breaker: Check the circuit breaker for the AC unit and reset it if it has tripped. Ensure the AC unit's power switch is turned on.
  • Inspect the Outdoor Unit: Ensure the outdoor unit is not obstructed by debris, plants, or other objects. Clean any visible dirt or debris from the unit's exterior.
  • Check the Vents: Make sure all vents in your home are open and unobstructed to allow proper airflow.
  • Inspect the Condensate Drain:  A clogged drain can cause the AC to shut down. Clear any visible blockages.
  • Listen for Unusual Noises: Strange noises can indicate issues with the fan motor or compressor.
  • Examine Refrigerant Levels: Low refrigerant levels can prevent the AC from cooling effectively. This usually requires a professional to check and refill.

If you've tried these steps and your AC still isn't cooling, it’s time to contact a professional AC repair company. Our skilled technicians can diagnose and fix the problem efficiently. Here's what we can do for you:
