Maryland is starting to experience summer temperatures and before long, many homeowners will turn on their air conditioning units for the first time this year. This is the time of year you are most likely to experience AC problems. A faulty circuit and refrigerant leak are just some of the Cheverly, MD AC problems you might experience in your home.
The AC Will Not Turn On
One of the most common problems homeowners experience after a long season of no use is that the unit simply does not turn on. This could indicate a few problems, including a dead battery, a flipped circuit breaker, or a faulty thermostat. Of course, one of the mechanical parts of your unit could require repairs. It is best to schedule an appointment with a technician as soon as possible so we can troubleshoot the problem and get your air turned on in no time.
The Air Is Not Cold
Another potential problem is that your air conditioning unit turns on, but the air is not cold. This is usually a problem with a refrigerant leak or a broken blower. It could also indicate a problem with the compressor. Outdoor AC units are exposed to a lot of wear and tear during the winter months, and a lack of cold air often indicates that you need professional service.
You Have Hot spots
It is also possible for your air to turn on and cool, but only in some parts of the house. This could be a problem with leaky ductwork or poor insulation. It is also possible that your air vents are not working properly. Change your air filter and make sure to check that all of your air vents are open. Hot spots could also mean that the thermostat is in a poor location.
