3 Things To Check if Your AC Stops Working

3 Things to Check When Your AC is Not Working

Summer in Utah can be hard on your home’s air conditioning system. The heat takes a toll, and your air conditioner can’t keep up. You begin to wonder; does it need to be replaced or repaired? Before you throw out your old unit or schedule an AC repair appointment, here are three things you can check if your air conditioner stops working:

#1: Check the Breakers

If the HVAC breaker in your home trips, it will prevent your AC from turning on, which will make your home uncomfortable as the temperature rises.

Before you call an HVAC technician, check your breaker box to confirm the AC breaker has not been tripped.

#2: Check the Thermostat

If the thermostat is not receiving power, there could be a wiring issue, or the batteries may need to be replaced.

If your thermostat requires batteries to operate, try replacing them before calling a technician.

#3: Check the Filter

Dirty filters make it difficult for your air conditioner to keep your home cool because of reduced air flow through the system. Clogged filters can also decrease the life of your AC unit and increase your energy costs.

Don’t wait until your AC stops working to check your air filters. Set yourself a reminder for at least every three months to replace them.
