When your AC is on but not cooling your Salt Lake City-area home, you may need air conditioning repair. But before you call Lee’s Heating and Air Conditioning, you may want to try a few quick fixes. First, make sure your thermostat is set to “cool.” Sometimes, homeowners simply change the temperature setting without turning on the cool function, and if your fan is set to run continuously, you may not notice that the compressor has not kicked on.
Other things to check before calling for air conditioning repair is the air filter. If you haven’t changed the air filter recently, it could be clogged with dust and dirt, preventing the cool air from reaching your rooms.
Lastly, your evaporator or condenser coils could be caked with dirt, preventing your AC from working properly. You may try hosing off your condenser coils on your unit outside, but it really isn’t safe for homeowners to try to clean the evaporator coils inside the home — it’s best to rely on a professional.
If these tips don’t work, call us for air conditioner repair.
