The Possible Reasons Why an AC Won’t Turn On

June 5, 2019

On a hot summer day, there are few things worse than an AC that won’t turn on. Thankfully, fixing the problem may be as simple as making sure that your thermostat is on or that an air filter isn’t clogged.

Is Your Air Conditioner Turned On?

The air conditioner may only turn on if the thermostat is set correctly. In some cases, all you have to do is hit a couple of buttons on the thermostat to get a flow of cool air circulating throughout the home. Of course, you can always call Cooper Heating & Cooling in Denver to help solve issues related to your air conditioner. If necessary, we can replace your current unit with a system that is easier to operate and runs more efficiently.

Have You Checked Your Air Filters?

If an air filter is clogged, the liquid used to create cold air could freeze. That might result in a motor or other small components freezing as well. When these components are not working, it may be impossible for the air conditioner to turn on or function properly. Ideally, an air filter will be replaced every 30 to 90 days. We can inspect or install air filters on a regular schedule to prevent clogs from occurring.

Is There a Problem With the Circuit Breaker?

If your home is not getting power, the air conditioner may not operate no matter how high the temperature rises. Even if your home has power, a bad circuit could result in the air conditioner not turning on. Therefore, it could be useful to check the circuit breaker to ensure that there aren’t any electrical issues causing the unit to malfunction.

When you need help with your air conditioning system, give us a call. The crew at Cooper Heating & Cooling can inspect, repair or replace your unit in a timely and professional manner.
