With the extreme Phoenix Summer heat, if you have an older AC unit, it’s even more likely that your air conditioner may experience some failures. If this is the case, you might want to consider you the following.
1. Check Your Air Filter
When your AC unit fails, one important item to check would be your air filter. Why? This is an often forgotten thing that needs to be replaced on a regular basis (at least once a month during the Summer) because your ac filter can get clogged with dust and debris that can restrict the air flow and cause your system to malfunction or run much less efficiently.
2. Check Your Circuit Breaker
Believe it or not, it’s not uncommon for circuits to get tripped especially during the Summer when your AC unit may be running more continuously. So, if your AC suddenly stops working, you might want to check your circuit breaker to see if you need to flip the switch back on.
3. Check Thermostat Batteries
Yes, we’ve seen this scenario from time to time. Check your thermostat batteries just in case. You might surprise yourself to discover why this might be the answer to your AC problem.
4. Check Your AC Condenser Coil
Your AC’s condenser coil is located directly behind the “fins” which are the metal wiring that covers your outdoor AC unit. Now that you’ve found it, make sure that your condenser coil is not covered in debris or dust. If you find that it is, hose it down with water. A clean condenser coil is vital when it comes to a properly functioning AC unit.
