Troubleshooting Common HVAC Problems

HVAC Power Questions Answered by Earl’s Air Conditioning

When your thermostat fails to turn on or seems to be malfunctioning, there are ways that you can check the system before calling a professional like those at Earl’s Air Conditioning. A few easy checks can help you determine if the problem is simple or if you need repairs and maintenance from HVAC technicians.

Three simple things may be the culprit when it comes to your air conditioning system not turning on, and you can do a visual inspection to see if these may be the case.

  1. Power: Sometimes the big problems have the simplest solution. If your HVAC system is not turning on, make sure that the system is receiving power. Turn your system off, check your breakers, then wait a few moments to turn everything back on. This also gives you a chance to reset the system by turning it off and on again.
  2. Thermostat: Check your thermostat power source, whether hard wired or battery, to make sure it is receiving power. If the system is running, but your home is not at its usual temperature, check that the thermostat settings have not been changed. It is easy for accidental thermostat adjustments to happen when children or guests are present.
  3. Wiring: If your power and thermostat are in working order, you may want to visually inspect the wiring to your system. Be careful not to handle any wiring that is damaged as there is a risk of electric shock. Check wiring connections and make sure that wires have not been stripped or damaged by landscaping equipment, rodents, harsh weather conditions, or another hazard.

If you are unsure of how to check or if you want to speak with a professional, the team at Earl’s Air Conditioning is always here to help. You can call our HVAC technicians at Earl’s AC for maintenance and repairs in the Coachella Valley.

Maintenance and Air Flow for Your HVAC System

When HVAC maintenance is neglected, you run the risk of incurring major repairs later. Regular maintenance can help to keep your system running smoothly, will help us to fix problems when they are small, and help you make sure your system is running efficiently.

Air conditioning maintenance includes regularly changing your air filters to help your air quality stay high and keep your system running efficiently. Clean air filters prevent pollutant buildup and increased resistance in the duct system. Unrestricted airflow helps your system live longer.
