Air conditioning problems can be very frustrating to deal with, especially as the warmer weather begins to take over the forecast. So what is wrong with your air conditioner? Home Comfort Experts put together a list of the common AC problems when homeowners first turn on their unit and why they are happening.
Your Unit Is Not Turning On
Some homeowners find that their air conditioner is not turning on at the beginning of the season. If this is the case, you will first want to make sure that your thermostat is working. One of two things involving your thermostat could have happened. One, the thermostat may need new batteries. Two, it may need to be replaced completely. If you are still experiencing issues with the unit not working, you will want to call an AC technician to inspect your unit.
Your Unit Isn’t Cooling Properly
Another frustration many homeowners face when turning on their air conditioner is that it’s not cooling properly. First, check your thermostat. This may sound like common sense, but you will want to make sure that it is set properly to cool and low enough to trigger the system to start. If that doesn’t work, check your filter. A dirty filter can cause your unit to not cool properly by restricting airflow. As a result of this, the air conditioner is unable to effectively cool.

Another issue that could be causing your air conditioner to not cool properly is due to an insufficient amount of refrigerant. This will happen if there is a leak in your unit. In this case, you will want to call a professional to have them take a look at your air conditioner.
