Why Won’t My Air Conditioning Turn On?

There are few situations more frustrating than not being able to start up your air conditioning system on a very hot summer day. If your air conditioner simply won’t turn on, contact the professional San Antonio air conditioning repair technicians at General Air Conditioning today. The longer you put off any necessary AC repairs, the more likely it becomes that your system will face serious damages. Do not allow minor AC problems to cause you a big headache down the road. As soon as you realize that your AC will not come on, give us a call. Here are a few tips to help you handle the situation properly.

Before jumping to a worst case scenario mentality, double check that you have set your thermostat properly. If you have it set to “heat” rather than to “cool,” or if you have set the temperature to an inappropriately high level, then the air conditioning system just may not realize that it ought to be running. It is also possible that your air conditioner has come unplugged from its power source, or even that something has severed the power line. Finally, check your circuit breakers. You could have your air conditioning system back up and running with the flip of a switch.

Once you have determined that this is not a simple case of human error and that your AC really will not start up, it is time to contact your air conditioning repair technician. It is very possible that there is an electrical problem within your air conditioning system, or that your start capacitor, which gives the system an extra energy boost to get going, has failed. It may also be a problem with a fan motor or even a slipped fan belt. If your AC seems to turn on but does not want to cool your home, you may have a low refrigerant charge on your hand. Contact us to determine the exact cause of your problem.

If your air conditioner won’t turn on at all, or if some component of it does not seem to operate, contact the San Antonio air conditioning repair pros at General Air Conditioning. We’ll make sure that you are able to cool your home effectively and reliably. Call now to discuss your AC repair options.
