AC Isn’t Turning On

There are number of problems that could contribute to why your air conditioner is not turning on. If you find any of the problems listed below with your central air, contact your local HVAC contractor for additional help.

With warmer weather quickly approaching, more and more people are starting up their central air systems. Homeowners who opt to skip out on air conditioner maintenance may find that their central air is not what they remembered.

The AC unit won’t turn on

Usually when the outdoor unit doesn’t turn on, it is because something tripped the circuit breaker. When this happens, you can easily reset it after locating the circuit breaker panel.

If you find that the AC unit still does not work, the next place to look is the thermostat. A non-responsive thermostat will fail to communicate with the rest of the central air system. Your HVAC contractor can fix this for you. Oftentimes, something as simple as power can solve the issue right then and there. If not, there may be a bigger problem relating to the thermostat and wiring.

The AC doesn’t cool evenly

Ducts, or ductwork, are used to transport conditioned air throughout the home, and are sized to match each room of the home. However, other variables that need to be considered, such as how much sun comes in through the windows. To manage natural heat sources and even out air conditioning, we install dampers within the air duct system to control the flow of air.

Your AC contractor will work with you to assess your home environment and customize the air conditioning to each room or area.

The AC doesn’t cool

When the air conditioning doesn’t feel cool, the problem could lie within the control board. Otherwise, the refrigerant may be to blame. In either case, the attention and care of your air conditioner contractor is needed to restore service.

Refrigerant can be hazardous to handle yourself. For your safety, wait for your trusted air conditioning contractor, who is EPA certified, to deliver.

The Condenser Unit Turns on and Off Repeatedly

The outdoor condenser unit contains safety controls that automatically shut down the system when the pressure drops below a certain level. Once pressure rises again, the system starts up. Pressure can change with general temperature as well as refrigerant levels contained inside the central air.

If your condenser continues to turn on and off, your AC contractor can assess the safety controls ensure correct performance.

Another reason your AC system could be repeatedly turning on and off is if it’s short cycling. It happens when your AC can’t reach the temperature on the thermostat or reaches that temperature too soon. The machine will constantly turn on and off while never completing a full cycle.
