AC Troubleshooting in Los Angeles
Southern California AC Services
In the Information Age in which we're living, everyone likes to tackle a bit of DIY. Now more than ever, people are trying to fix things themselves, and hoping to save a great deal of money in the process. While it is true that you can save some money by fixing things that you know how to fix, you must never fix something that you have no experience or training to repair. Your air conditioner is the perfect example of an appliance you want to avoid trying to repair without training. If you're considering repairing or replacing your AC unit, maybe you should first start by doing some simple troubleshooting.
If your AC system is not working properly, you can troubleshoot by checking for a couple of common issues:
- Thermostat – You would not believe how many times an air conditioner problem can be fixed simply by looking at the thermostat. The thermostat is what controls your unit, and without the unit getting a message from the thermostat, nothing will work. That's why you should always try to see if the air conditioner unit is hearing the call from the thermostat before you give an expert a call. Click the thermostat to a temperature that is below the one you're currently on. If you hear the unit respond, the problem is likely elsewhere. If it does not, the problem is somewhere in the connection between your thermostat and your Los Angeles air conditioner unit.
- Fuse Box – The fuse box is also a good idea to check before you call an expert. Many times, the fuse has been tripped and simply needs to be reset. Check the fuse box and see if everything is in order there.
