Its the middle of the summer in Woodbridge, New Jersey and your air conditioner stops working. Now what, well we are here to help.
Lets try a couple of things to make sure its not something simple.
1. Lets make sure the problem isn’t the furnace
Make sure your thermostat is set to AC mode and lower the temperature setting. If you hear the furnace fan kick on, the problem probably isn’t in the furnace. If you do not hear the fan turn on then try resetting the furnace electrical circuit breaker. If the fan still won’t start, call an ac repair expert like Ol King Cool!
2. Next, let us make sure the outside condensing unit is working. The compressor (which sounds like a refrigerator and is a large unit with a fan on top) and fan should be running.
If the condensing unit outside is not working, follow this troubleshooting and ac repair procedure:
1. Caution: Turn Off the Power
Try turning off the ac and furnace breakers in the main electrical panel. Wait a few minutes and then turn the break back on. See if the condensing unit comes on. If it does not you will need to call Ol King Cool to repair your ac unit.
