Why Isn’t My AC Working?
We all know that air conditioners don’t always turn on when you need them most. When this happens at your commercial property and you’re wondering, “Why is my AC not working?” or you’re trying to search for “commercial AC repair near me” online, it’s easy to feel frustrated and even overwhelmed. Before you panic, though, check the following common commercial AC problems or have a professional check them. Getting your AC back on may be easier than you thought!
If the batteries in your thermostat go dead, your AC won’t turn on. If the screen there is suddenly blank, that’s a good sign that your thermostat needs some more juice. It’s usually easy to change out these batteries to find out if this is your problem.
It Got Turned Off
Most air conditioners have two disconnect switches: one in the attic, basement, or wherever the indoor component of your AC is located, and one by the outdoor unit. These can easily get bumped into the “off” position, which means your AC won’t work again until you flip them on.
Breakers & Fuses
If your AC flips a breaker or blows a fuse in your electrical panel, you’ll need to flip it back or replace it before the unit will work again. If it keeps doing this, call our commercial AC repair team in North Little Rock to find out why.
The AC itself also has a fuse inside. If that goes out, you’ll need an AC repairs expert to help you fix it.
A Blown Transformer
This also lives inside your air conditioner and is best tested and fixed by an AC services pro. We know how to do the job quickly and safely. If this is the problem, it’s an easy fix!
If your AC is blowing air but it’s just not cold enough, the problem may lie in your coils. These exist both indoors and out. Check both units and gently remove any debris that has collected around them. You can also call us for AC maintenance and let us do the job for you.
A Failed Capacitor
Capacitors are kind of like giant batteries that hold power so your AC can both turn on and stay on. When they get old, they can’t maintain power levels high enough for the unit to run and they need to be replaced by an AC pro.
A Clogged Filter
Sometimes, fixing your air conditioner is as easy as changing your filter. If it’s been a while since you changed this or your AC has worked extra hard because of dust or ash in the air, the filter may be exceptionally dirty. Change it to increase airflow and get cool again.
