Check refrigerant levels – Freon is the substance needed to drive the main cooling components of an air conditioner. This liquid is designed to last a long time inside the unit, but troubles occur when the component that holds the substance cracks a leak. Freon recharging is best done by qualified technicians from companies, such as AccuTemp Cooling and Heating. Do not even attempt to handle the substance.
Check the thermostat – The thermostat is a critical component of the air conditioning system as the unit basically runs off of it—as the brain of the system, the controlling device. Broken thermostats are typically caused by power-related issues, such as a blown fuse, tripped circuit breaker, or dead batteries. They can also be affected by accumulated dirt and contaminants inside, which can interfere with both electrical and mechanical components.
