Problem 1: AC’s not working

Check your breaker! If your AC system is simply not responding or working the first place you should check is your circuit breaker. Your AC uses a significant portion of your home’s electricity and is among the first breakers most likely to “trip” in case of power surge. It can be very concerning not hearing your system turn on at all but take a deep breath and a brisk walk to your circuit breaker first before panicking. This tip is the Cadillac of AC repair tips and could save you hundreds on service call fees.

Problem 2: Replace your air filter

Your air filter is the first line of defense for your AC system. It affects the efficiency of your system and works every second that your AC is running. If your air conditioner is turning on and off repeatedly this could be the culprit. If it is working but with subpar cooling effects compared to what you are used to, this could be the issue again. Clogged air filters are the number one cause of AC repair requests calls from homeowners.

Problem 3: Blank thermostat screen

This one is a little tricky. The AC thermostat is almost an afterthought when considering the behemoth that encompasses an entire air conditioning system. Some homeowners may not be aware that the thermostat runs on battery. If your thermostat is blank or blinking it might be time to replace the batteries. Try this and replace the thermostat housing back on the wall. If this doesn’t fix it, it might be time to call your local Sarasota AC repair professionals for assistance.
