Central air conditioners are consistently used during the spring and summer months in the Las Vegas desert, especially now while the city is in lock down due to Covid19. Having a comfortable home to spend the day working as well as entertaining yourself and the kids, is vital. There are many reasons as to why when homeowners switch the A/C on, it doesn’t power up or cool down the home. There are some reasons more common than others, but today, we at Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning would like to discuss a few of the common reasons.
Clean or Change Air Filters
When the air conditioner is not on, is check the air filter before anything else you do. When the air filters are over encumbered, some air conditioning models are designed to shut down and will not turn on until the filter is breathable again. To prevent damage from clogged filters, this safety feature is as an efficient precaution.
Check Power Supply to AC at Circuit Breaker
If in the event the air conditioning system does not seem to be receiving power, check the breaker box. Be sure to push the switch all the way to the off position before switching it back on again if the breaker switch flipped. Contact your power company if your home does not have any power. To restore the power for your unit, the help of a certified professional can properly diagnose the problem. A technician may simply need to tighten or repair any loose wiring or terminals, as this is often the common solution.
AC Tune Up Can Clean Dirty Condenser Unit Coils
The unit’s outdoor condenser fan and fins are clogged from dirt, leaves, grass, and other debris is another possible reason for an air conditioner not powering on. Scheduling a comprehensive air conditioning tune-up service can frequently be the best remedy. Otherwise, you will need to learn how to clean the condenser unit yourself without damaging it.
Check Thermostat Batteries
The thermostat is another culprit, make sure it is operating correctly and has fresh batteries. A good cleaning every so often is important for an electromechanical thermostat. Make sure it is not the circuit breaker or power supply if the thermostat won’t power on. If the home is powered but thermostat is not functioning, you need professional assistance.
Contactor, Transformer, or Relay is Faulty
The air conditioner or heat pump requires the transformer and contactor are electric motor controls to power up the unit. In the event these elements are not functioning, you will need to contact a licensed professional for replacement.
