Temperatures may still be relatively mild for now, but it’s only a matter of time before the weather warms up and we start relying on our air conditioners pretty consistently once more. When that time comes, hopefully you’ll be well equipped with a recently maintained and well cared for cooling system.
But what if you go to turn it on for the first time this cooling system only to discover that while it’s blowing air, that air isn’t cool? This is, understandably, a frustrating problem to have and may certainly warrant a call for professional Clearfield, UT air conditioning repairs. But before you dial our number, we have a few things we’d like you to consider.
How Are Your Vents?
First off, is the problem only in a single room, or is it multiple rooms that are struggling to cool down? If the issue is only present in one spot, it could simply be that one of the vents was closed or got blocked somehow. Blocking off a vent is not something we recommend doing on purpose, since it can create problems for an air conditioner, which must work harder to run efficiently as it’s designed to cool a specific amount of space.
Check Your Air Filter
For complex maintenance activities like cleaning the coils of your system and making appropriate adjustments and repairs, you should only trust the pros. But changing or cleaning your air filter is something you can and should do on your own.
The air filter that comes standard with your HVAC unit is there to protect its inside components—primarily the coils—from dirt and debris that could impede its performance. If the filter is clogged, this makes your AC struggle to effectively do its job and as a result you may not feel the cool air that you should coming from your cooling system.
Inspect the Circuit Breaker
If your air conditioner has tripped the circuit breaker, there could be an issue with the electrical components of your system that needs professional attention. However, it may just be a temporary problem—switch the circuit breaker back to the “on” position and try running your AC again. If the issue repeats, then it certainly requires a call to our professionals. If it doesn’t, however, then there’s no need to worry.
