For some of us, air conditioning is the best invention since sliced bread. When we go to sleep, we are able to snuggle under the covers and not sweat the whole night. When we walk inside from a hot day in the sun, we expect that cool blast of air. But what happens when we are met with the same hot air that is outside? This could be the worst thing that has happened to some of us in a very long time. Chances are, you have no idea how an a/c unit works or why it just decided to stop working today. At Ideal Air, we want to help you try to figure out what the issue is.

Is the condenser running?

If the condenser is not running, make sure power is getting to the unit. If there is power, check the breaker box to see if a there is a tripped circuit or blown fuse. You should also check the thermostat. If it wasn’t set properly, that could cause your condenser to stop running.

Not cold enough?

Sometimes the a/c unit will run and run and your house just doesn’t feel cold enough. If this is the case for you, turn the thermostat down five degrees. If this doesn’t do anything, check the evaporator as it could be dirty and causing your unit not to cool your home.

If you are like the general population and didn’t understand most of these tip, don’t worry. Ideal Air is here to help you. Just give us a call and we will come out and take a look at your unit for you and let you know what we can do for you!
