When your air conditioner isn t working, it can be a costly mistake to call a technician to fix. There are simple ways to keep your air conditioner running at optimum efficiency.
When your air conditioner isn t working due to a broken window, then you need to check that the window is sealed correctly. Also, make sure that the switch is set to On and that the power source is present.
If these checks and troubleshooting tips do not work, then you must call a technicians. My suggestion is to use a local company that has been using their AC for some time so that there is no risk of causing damage or panic among the customers.
Buying an AC with poor airflow ratings can cause pressure building up in the unit which could result in breakage or failure.
Check that the air conditioner is plugged in
If your air conditioner is not turning on, check that it is plugged in and that it is running. You can do this by putting a small amount of battery power into the unit via a power strip or by opening the unit and checking that the power cord is connected to it.
You can also check that the filter is functioning properly by removing it and looking under the cover. If there are any debris particles in the filter, you will not see them. If you notice cooling sensation when the unit is turned on, then there are no problems with the unit.
If all of these steps have failed, then we recommend calling a licensed technician to replace or repair your air conditioner.
Make sure the thermostat is set to “cool”
If your air conditioner is set to “heat”, then your window unit may not be cooling or heating properly.
If your window unit is functioning properly, it should be setting and rising with the temperature in your home. If it is cooling or heating the room, then it needs to be adjusted higher or lower.
It is usually located in the windowunit itself, so you would have to look for it. A quick glance at your home will show if the window unit is working well enough to keep heat in the room or not.
If you feel that it is hot enough, then there are two issues that may be causing this light turn off/ on problem. The first issue could be that they are getting enough heat from the window unit to maintain their coolness. The second issue could be that they are missing their target temperature because of this light turn off/ on problem.
Check the filter and clean if needed
If your air conditioner has a filter, check it to see if it needs to be replaced. Many times filter replacements are recommended annually, so taking your air conditioner for a check-up is worth it.
If your air conditioner has a filter, make sure it is equipped with a good quality paper or metal one. Make sure it is installed properly so the water can flow through it. If there is any problem with the filter, then water will not flow through it and the system will not cooling down the room properly.
To keep your home safe and cool, install ceiling fans to circulate the air. If you have children or animals that need cooling down, then get an automatic shut off feature so you do not have to manually turn off the unit every few hours.
Check for any damage or leaks
Sometimes a home air conditioner will need a service call. If your system is working fine, but showing signs of wear and tear, then contact your service provider.
Air conditioner problems are pretty rare. When they happen, it is usually due to a damaged unit or a failed motor. When this happens, the manufacturer usually offers a repair or replacement policy.
If you have a failed motor or an electronic component that doesn’t work, then contacting your service provider may result in a free replacement or repair. This is why it is important to always make sure the air conditioner is on and working properly before taking any action.

Call your service provider if you cannot get it working
Call your service provider if you cannot get it working. Many homes have a ceiling fan or air conditioner that can be controlled by a remote. If your unit is not one of these, you may be able
These units are small and can be tucked away, so if the unit is not operating, you may need to replace the battery or wiring to access it. If you can call the unit working, then it is defective.
If you can t get your unit working, then it is likely that your wiring is incorrect and/or poor. Check and make sure that your unit has power going to it, that there are no obstructions in way of power or cooling, and that the wiring is good and strong.
