Man Doing Heating, Ventilation, And Air Conditioning Inspection Something’s wrong with your central air conditioning.  A strange sound or odor.  Water leaking.  Cool temperature not being maintained.  Perhaps air flow is weak, or you even have warm air blowing out of your vents when you were expecting cool air.  

These are all common complaints we receive at Classic Air Conditioning & Heating.

But, here’s the thing.  While the causes of many air conditioning issues do genuinely need to be assessed and repaired by a certified professional, others are extremely straightforward.  Sometimes, even the least mechanically-minded among us can still troubleshoot – and successfully fix a central air conditioning system with just a few helpful pointers!

So, if your central A/C is languishing, try these quick fixes before you call in the professionals.

 

Check the Filter

Your air conditioner’s filter is kind of like its lungs.  When the filter reaches a critically dirty level, your air conditioner can no longer “breathe” and circulate enough air.  This can lead to a whole host of problems, including total system failure.  

Remove the filter from your AC unit.  If it’s full of lint or other debris, you’ve probably found the culprit of your problem.  The solution?  Buy a new filter, and then mark the replacement date on your calendar so you can avoid this situation in the future.

 

Check Your Electrical Panel

If your air conditioner doesn’t turn on, don’t panic – at least not yet.  There is a very real possibility that the unit is just not receiving any power.  

The culprit?  Perhaps your A/C circuit breakers are tripped.  Ensure that the breakers that power your central A/C are flipped to the “ON” position and try again.

If that doesn’t do the trick, then it may be time to panic just a little (a.k.a. call in the experts).

 

Check for Physical Blockages

Physical blockages can thwart your air conditioner both outdoors and indoors.  

Starting outdoors, check the unit itself for dirt and debris.  You can gently use a hose to spray down dirty exterior hardware.  Also, be sure to remove any larger debris such as leaves, sticks, garbage, or even animal nests.  You never know what you might find during a spring cleaning!

Indoors, be sure to open all vents (even in unused rooms) and ensure the area around them is clear.  Furniture, rugs, and curtains – as well as dirt and dust – can all be factors in poor air conditioner function.

 

Check Your Thermostat

This is a common one, especially in the spring.  

Before calling in the experts, double-check that no one has inadvertently fiddled with your thermostat settings.  Make sure that the temperature setting is as low as you would like and that the fan is set to “ON” or “AUTO”.  Also, take a peek to be certain that the thermostat is programmed to “COOL,” not “HEAT”.  

 

Check With the Experts

If you’ve taken all the steps above and something is still wrong with your air conditioning, it’s time to call in the experts.  If you’re seeking repairs for your air conditioning in Braunfels, TX, look no further than Classic Air Conditioning & Heating.  Give us a call today!

We've been using Classic Air Conditioning & Heating Services for the past five years to include Installation of new units (flawless by the way), bi-annual check-ups that are scheduled and carried out without a second thought on my part, and in emergencies (backed up drain in the bathroom with a response time in under 24 hours to troubleshoot the problem). Their technicians are master's at their craft, personable, and cut to the chase on his service calls. I never feel like I'm being given the run around or a sales pitch with this company. Today, Mitchell Wesch went above and beyond walking us through what was happening and provided a multitude of options and expected timelines for future repairs. Once again, a great example of exemplary customer service. He was able to troubleshoot the problem with zero delay. We're ready for the Texas summer, and are already looking forward to the next scheduled service call. Thank you Classic Services for keeping our home healthy and happy.

Theresa did an amazing job! She informed me about everything she was doing and took extra pictures so I could have them for my record. She was quick but still answered all my questions. She definitely saved the day when my condensor froze over on the coldest day of the year, leaving my family in the cold. She was out at my house within the hour and had everything fixed in minutes.
