- It’s hot and my AC won’t turn on: We hear this more than you might think. First, check your circuit panel to make sure you haven’t simply blown a fuse or tripped the circuit breaker. Next, check your thermostat to make sure that it’s definitely turned on and calling for cool air. If neither of these steps works, then there may be an electrical connectivity issue in your AC unit. Alternatively, your capacitor may have failed.
- My AC makes this weird hissing sound: If it sounds a bit like air is escaping through a small hole, then that’s probably what it is! At a certain stage during the refrigerant cycle, the refrigerant is in a gaseous state. During this phase, if you have even a microscopic puncture in your coils or copper lineset, then you may hear a hissing sound. That is the sound of refrigerant leaking out of your AC unit. It’s not only bad for the environment, but it will also decrease your energy efficiency and significantly reduce your cooling performance over time.
- I want more control of my AC: If you’re sick of the one-temperature solution of central air, but are otherwise pleased with the performance of your unit, then consider installing a zone control system. Electronically controlled dampers are inserted directly into your existing ductwork so that you can control the temperatures of different zones of your home differently. It’s a great way to add versatility and boost energy efficiency.
