Summer started with a bang. In my area, temperatures are breaking old records on a daily basis.
And the A/C units? some are giving up and quit.
If you haven't done your annual check up and service maintenance, don't panic when your A/C fails, and they do fail at the worst moment: when the temp is high and when you can't find an A/C tech.
There is something most homeowners can do:
- If your compressor quits, check the fuses. Replace if needed and buy an extra set of fuses. Many stores will run out in a few days. Only buy fused designed for your unit. Not sure how to do that, get help, call A/C techs and electricians.
- The same applies to your circuit breaker feeding the A/C.
- If your problem is not solved, your unit may need an inspection from a professional.
