What are some common troubleshooting techniques for air conditioners that anyone can perform?
Sometimes air conditioners can be tricky. They can simply refuse to work based on a minor issue that can be easily corrected. But since we have no knowledge of it, we end up calling an expert and waste money in the process.
I learnt a few common tricks that’s saved me a lot of money over the years, and this is me passing it on. First of all, you want to check if your filter is dirty. This is one of the most common problems air conditioners have. If you have a clogged air filter, your AC simply won’t work.
Secondly, you want to check if the machine is too sunny on the inside or if warm air is leaking in. Additionally, always check if your thermostat is in the right setting, if the registers are dirty or blocked, and if there are plants or other things crowding the compressor.
Of course, once you do all of these and there are no changes, you can then proceed to call an air conditioner expert to get to the things you can’t.
