Basic AC Troubleshooting for Sarasota Homeowners

The Florida heat is no joke, and a malfunctioning AC unit can turn your home into a sauna in no time. Before calling in the Sarasota AC experts, there are a few basic troubleshooting steps you can take to try and get your cool air flowing again.

Before You Call an AC Technician:

Safety First! Always turn off the power to your AC unit at the breaker box before attempting any troubleshooting.

Check the Thermostat:

  • Is it set to "cool" and a temperature lower than the current room temperature? A simple setting mistake can make a big difference.
  • Are the batteries fresh? A low battery can prevent your thermostat from communicating with your AC unit.

Inspect the Air Filter:

  • A clogged air filter restricts airflow and can prevent your AC from functioning properly. Locate your air filter (usually near the return air vent) and check if it's dirty. If so, replace it with a clean filter of the correct type (consult your owner's manual).

Peeking at the Power:

  • Is the circuit breaker tripped for your AC unit? Check your breaker box and reset it if necessary. If it trips again, there might be a more serious electrical issue requiring professional help.

The Outside Unit:

  • Is the outdoor unit clear of debris like leaves, branches, or overgrown vegetation? Restricted airflow can hinder cooling.

Calling in the AC Professionals

If you've tried these troubleshooting steps and your AC remains stubbornly silent, it's time to call in the professionals. Don't attempt to fix electrical components or disassemble the unit yourself. Sarasota is lucky to have qualified AC technicians readily available.

If you’ve checked the above and your AC still isn’t powering on or blowing cold air, you need an AC repair. Thankfully, AC Today is here to provide you with a cost-friendly repair that won’t break the bank.

Q: Why is my home AC running but not cooling?

  • Your thermostat is set incorrectly.
  • Your air filter is too dirty.
  • Your condenser unit is blocked

If you check your thermostat and filter and clear away any debris by the condenser coil and your system is still not producing cool air, it’s probably time to call in a professional. To get your AC repaired, contact us today.

Q: Why is my home air conditioner making unusual noises?

A: It's very likely that your air conditioner is malfunctioning if you hear loud buzzing noises coming from it. Loose parts, missing or damaged isolation feet, refrigerant leakage or a faulty compressor are all  common reasons for your home air conditioner to make unusual noises. If your AC is making weird noises, have a professional HVAC technician check it out. Once they find the source of the unusual sounds, they will be able to fix your AC and solve the problem.

Q: Why are my home energy bills higher than usual?

A: The most common reason for a higher than usual power bill is a dirty HVAC air filter. This is because an HVAC unit has to work harder to pull air through a clogged filter than a clean one. Filters should be changed or cleaned at least once every 90 days to minimize the HVAC’s runtime and, as a result, your energy usage.
