On the other hand, if you still would like to pursue resolving your cooling problems on your own, here are some tips that could help you:
Most often, the primary cause of air cooling units failing to operate efficiently is incorrect thermostat settings. There are homeowners who do not know how to properly operate their thermostat. You should know that you still need to adjust the settings on your thermostat after switching on your heating and cooling units.
Before you call an HVAC contractor, check to see if your thermostat is on the right settings. If not, adjust it to the right settings and go back and switch your air cooling unit on again. If it still does not operate properly, you may need to call in your manufacturer or an air conditioner repair expert to confirm whether or not you are using your thermostat properly. Some thermostats, especially the ones manufactured today, use advanced technologies that may be unfamiliar to you.
Inside the thermostat
If your thermostat is on the proper settings and all the necessary switches are turned on and your air conditioning unit still does not work, you may need to do a quick assessment of the inside of your thermostat. Before you do this, however, you need to make sure that the entire unit is switched off. It is important that there is no electricity flowing through the unit so that you will not get an electrical shock as you open the thermostat.
Once you are sure that the entire unit is properly switched off, carefully remove the cover of your thermostat. What you are looking for are any loose or disconnected wiring. You do not have to touch or move anything as you probably do not have any idea what the wires are for. Keep in mind that you are doing a quick visual assessment of the wiring inside your thermostat to help you determine the cause of your air cooling problems.
Should you notice anything that is not properly connected, call an HVAC contractor at once and have him make the necessary changes to your thermostat wiring. If everything seems to be in their rightful place, put the cover back on and do a quick test of your cooling unit. If the problem still persists, call your contractor for professional assistance.
