Part 1: Why Won’t My AC Turn On?
Welcome to Part 1 of our blog series, “Why Won’t My AC Turn On?” We all know how frustrating it feels when your precious AC just won’t listen to you! However, this becomes all the more unbearable when it happens in summer! After all, we Minnesotans are best suited for cold, are we not? In this blog, your local AC installation shop in Minneapolis MN at All Climate Mechanical will talk about the most common reasons why air conditioners behave this way. AC Installation Minneapolis MN
Your AC’s Fuse Blew
Let’s discuss what a fuse is in simple words. So electricity can’t be left unchecked. Why? Well, if a big quantity of electricity flows to one area, there’s a chance of fire, and this fire can spread everywhere the wires go. This is where a fuse comes in. If a fuse detects an unexpectedly huge current, it will break itself along with the circuit. And when this happens, electricity can only flow if you replace the fuse. Hoof! So, even if the surge in electricity in your home was for only one moment, your AC’s fuse probably broke and needs replacement. For more information, feel free to contact All Climate Mechanical, the best AC installation shop in Minneapolis MN, today.
Your Air Filter Is Clogged
Have you heard the saying that one droplet of water cannot pierce a rock, but their collective effect (say in a rain) is enough to tear down thousands? Something similar is the case with dust. One dust particle is not significant, but a million particles are enough to stop an AC. When your air filters are clean, airflow is uninterrupted. When they become covered with debris and dust, air is obstructed. Cooling down air involves absorbing atmospheric humidity and making the water droplets fall into a condensation tray. But when your air filters are dirty, the water droplets freeze and cover the coils with layers of ice. When there is enough ice, your AC gives up.
Your Thermostat Needs A Replacement
Consider this analogy. You have a wonderful car in your garage but you don’t have the key. The car will obviously not start, right! Your thermostat is like a car key. It is what starts and stops your air conditioning unit; it’s the control panel for this appliance. So, if your thermostat is blank, broken, outdated, needs batteries, or another similar scenario, it is more than capable of stopping your AC from turning on. We’ll continue with more reasons in Part 2 of this blog series. But please feel free to reach out to the best HVAC contractors in Minneapolis MN, All Climate Mechanical, for any advice or suggestion!
