Avoid Repair Bills: Fix Your Air Conditioning Unit Yourself

Author: Administrator
Sometimes your air conditioning unit develops problems and you're uncertain what to do. But before you phone up the air conditioning repair company, try some basic steps by yourself. These moves can potentially save you a great deal of money in repair bills. Here's a troubleshooting guide to help you determine what's wrong and what you can do to fix it.

What you need to do will be dependent upon precisely what the problem is. If nothing is functioning at all, the problem might be the power supply or your controls. To start with, you need to check that there is actually power being delivered to the unit. Locate the power connection and test it. If that didn't fix the matter, inspect the unit to ensure that all the settings are correct. You'd be surprised by how many air conditioning repair calls that could be avoided with these basic steps.

Sometimes your air conditioning unit is delivering air, but it's not being chilled. In this case then there are a few things that could be the problem. First of all, check to see how much air is going through the system. There could be an issue with the duct system or blower if the air flow is weak.

Next, examine the condition of the blower unit. If it has a buildup of dirt and dust, this probably indicates that the blower is turning but can't get any air circulating. All you have to do is remove it, clean it, and reinstall it. This simple technique can save you a lot of money.

Another thing that can seriously hamper air flow are soiled filters and ducts. Find the filter, remove it and replace it with a clean one. This is one more simple thing that you can do on your own and which costs very little.

If everything appears clean, examine the ducts to ensure that they are all connected and open. Shine a flashlight down into them. If it's dark in the room you will be able to see light shining through. But you should be able to see the separation easily if it's an obvious leak.

Ice on the compressor unit is one more reason for problems with cooling. This is something else you can easily deal with on your own. Turn off the unit and let it warm up. You'll find that the ice slowly melts away. Before you switch the air conditioner on again, make sure that all of the ice is entirely melted.
