It’s been a hot summer in Kalispell, MT, and for most of us, that means our air conditioners have been running on a consistent basis to increase home comfort. It may happen to you at some point this summer- your air conditioner quits working. No air conditioning on the hottest days of the summer can provoke homeowners to panic. There are a number of things you can do ahead of time to ensure that your AC doesn’t break down on you late in the summer.
- Check your air filter- If it’s been a long time since your AC’s filter has been either cleaned or replaced, you may want to purchase a new one. A dirty air filter can lead to limited airflow and can promote problems that might appear down the road.
- Check your circuit breakers- Many people have experienced their breaker switches getting tripped or shut off by accident. While not usually considered a big deal, a tripped HVAC breaker can result in problems that can get worse with time.
- Make sure your vents aren’t obstructed- Blocked or impeded vents will do nothing but limit the airflow throughout your home and cause your AC to over-operate. Make sure your vents are clear, especially if your home hasn’t been as cool as you want it to be.
