Before calling in a HVAC Professional For Air Conditioner Repair Check These 3 Simple things, 

CHANGE YOUR AIR FILTER

It’s an essential part of keeping your HVAC system functional and your home filled with healthy air. A dirty air filter is one of the most, if not the most, common reason a system breaks down. Accumulated dirt blocks air from flowing, and in turn, damages integral parts of your furnace. Lack of adequate airflow can cause big problems – so, small investment, big return!

CHECK YOUR THERMOSTAT

When your thermostat is properly selected for your system, sending signals, set to the right temperature, it’s your greatest and simplest asset in living comfortably. Maintenance of a thermostat is pretty easy: if it’s acting up, replace the batteries and return it to your preferred settings. If for some reason it’s malfunctioning all the time no matter how many times you try to reset it, it might be worth purchasing a new one instead of spending money on repairs. Particularly with older models, it’s hard to find parts, so it’s worth the long-term added value to replace it. Be cautious, though, as improperly changing out a thermostat can cause unwanted problems. 

CHECK IF THE SYSTEM IS DRAINING

This is probably the most commonly overlooked part of AC Maintenance, yet the most frequent as temperatures rise. The condensate line is important in removing condensation produced by your AC’s evaporator coil. Make sure the condensate drain flow is clear of debris. A blocked or obstructed drain can cause a backup, and the water will flow from the pan and take an unintended path to damage the furnace and the surrounding floor.
