Troubleshooting Your Heating and Cooling System in Salt Lake City UT
Heating and cooling systems may occasionally fail to operate properly. If you are fairly handy and know a little bit about your system, you will have better luck troubleshooting and pinpointing the issue. Before you begin checking your heating and cooling Salt Lake City UT, you must firs turn the system off. Leave it off for approximately half an hour. This will give your unit time to stabilize.
Begin by turning your system back on. Turn the fan switch to the “on” position. It may take a couple of moments for the unit to come on. Check each of the vents in your home and see if you feel any air coming out of them.
Adjust the thermostat to a cooler temperature. When you make this adjustment, you should hear a click.
Even though your unit should be running, go outside and listen to the outdoor unit. You should hear the fan running and the compressor should come on.
If the blower motor is sending air through the vents in your home but the compressor and the fan in the outdoor unit isn’t working, you could have an electrical problem.
In the event that your outdoor unit is not coming on as it should, don’t automatically assume it is an electrical problem. You can take your troubleshooting a step further. Check any circuit breakers and try to adjust your thermostat at least one more time.
If nothing you have done is working and your system is still not functioning properly, you may need to call for help from a certified HVAC contractor to come work on your Air Conditioning unit.
