When your Air conditioning unit decides to stop working and temperatures soar in the summer heat, you need a quick fix. Most air conditioning repairs require professional help but homeowners can fix some common home A/C problems and troubleshoot them, themselves.
Check the power to make sure the unit is plugged in if your condenser is not running. If so, check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse, then restore the power and see if it starts. If the thermostat isn’t set right, you can also start by lowering the thermostat by five degrees if the A/C unit doesn’t seem to be cooling your home sufficiently.
