Air Conditioning doesn’t turn on or isn’t working?

Most of todays air conditioners are designed to offer up to 20 years of use. But even the most reliable of air conditioners and central air units may stop cooling or suffer from problems.

One of the best ways to prevent unexpected A/C problems is to have regular maintenance performed on your unit.  Home comfort systems need to be regularly maintained to optimize their efficiency and safety. A regular checkup and adjustment will keep the system operating longer and save you money on your utility bills. Horsch & Miller can tailor a maintenance program for you with anywhere from one- to three-year plans to keep your equipment running efficiently and virtually trouble-free.

Some of the most common AC problems are listed below, and they may even be the reason why your air conditioning unit won’t kick on. central air, repair, air conditioning repair, installation, slinger

Common AC problems can be frustrating. However, there’s nothing more frustrating than when your air conditioner won’t turn on.  Here are some common causes of serious AC problems.  Unfortunaly, You will need to consult with a professional technician in order to address most of these problems.

  • Wiring problems: Problems with the wiring in your unit or the wiring that runs from your unit to an outlet are one of the leading causes of air conditioner breakdowns. It’s a good idea to check the breakers in your house’s power box and adjacent outlets to ensure that the problem lies with the air conditioner and not other electrical components.
  • Icy buildup: If ice collects of your condenser coils or other portions of your unit, the AC may not turn on or may not cool air efficiently. The unit must be dethawed and all ice must be removed before it will operate properly.
  • Faulty motors: In most cases, your A/C unit will shut down entirely if its motor is faulty. You will need to decide if your motor can be repaired or if it must be replaced.
  • Faulty compressors: Problems with your compressor may cause your A/C unit to shut down. Keeping your compressor clean can help to prevent these problems.
  • Dirty evaporators, filters or condenser: Dirt and buildup in an A/C system is one of the leading causes of breakdowns. Be sure to have your unit serviced on a regular basis to prevent these problems. If your unit has filters, they should be changed according to the manufacturer’s schedule.
  • Refrigerant shortages: If your A/C unit doesn’t have enough refrigerant, it may not turn on or may not operate correctly. You should always have a professional technician check refrigerant levels and change these fluids.
  • Faulty thermostats: Be sure to eliminate the possibility that your unit won’t turn on because your thermostat is faulty. If you suspect that your thermostat is bad, try turning the A/C on from the main unit. If the unit will turn on manually, you are likely suffering from a thermostat problem.

Care for your Air Conditioning, Maintaining your Central air Slinger

Maintaining your Air Conditioning system is important, by doing so you will have less need for repairs. Here is a nice article from Energy.gov

An air conditioner’s filters, coils, and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service. Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases. Check out our Energy Saver 101 Infographic: Home Cooling for more ways to help improve your comfort and the efficiency of your air conditioner.

Air Conditioner Filters

The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. With normal airflow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.

For central air conditioners, filters are generally located somewhere along the return duct’s length. Common filter locations are in walls, ceilings, furnaces, or in the air conditioner itself. Room air conditioners have a filter mounted in the grill that faces into the room.

Some types of filters are reusable; others must be replaced. They are available in a variety of types and efficiencies. Clean or replace your air conditioning system’s filter or filters every month or two during the cooling season. Filters may need more frequent attention if the air conditioner is in constant use, is subjected to dusty conditions, or you have fur-bearing pets in the house.

Air Conditioner Coils

The air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coil collect dirt over their months and years of service. A clean filter prevents the evaporator coil from soiling quickly. In time, however, the evaporator coil will still collect dirt. This dirt reduces airflow and insulates the coil, reducing its ability to absorb heat. To avoid this problem, check your evaporator coil every year and clean it as necessary.

Outdoor condenser coils can also become very dirty if the outdoor environment is dusty or if there is foliage nearby. You can easily see the condenser coil and notice if dirt is collecting on its fins.

You should minimize dirt and debris near the condenser unit. Your dryer vents, falling leaves, and lawn mower are all potential sources of dirt and debris. Cleaning the area around the coil, removing any debris, and trimming foliage back at least 2 feet (0.6 meters) allow for adequate airflow around the condenser.

Coil Fins

The aluminum fins on evaporator and condenser coils are easily bent and can block airflow through the coil. Air conditioning wholesalers sell a tool called a “fin comb” that will comb these fins back into nearly original condition.

Condensate Drains

Occasionally pass a stiff wire through the unit’s drain channels. Clogged drain channels prevent a unit from reducing humidity, and the resulting excess moisture may discolor walls or carpet.

Window Seals for Room Air Conditioners

At the start of each cooling season, inspect the seal between the air conditioner and the window frame to ensure it makes contact with the unit’s metal case. Moisture can damage this seal, allowing cool air to escape from your house.

Preparing for Winter

In the winter, either cover your room air conditioner or remove and store it. Covering the outdoor unit of a central air conditioner will protect the unit from winter weather and debris.
