Why Won’t My AC Turn On?

Spring is here and the weather is warm. We know that you’ve noticed the difference! The light is stretching later into the evening, you’re not freezing when you roll out of bed in the morning, and you’re starting to swap out your heavy outer wear for lighter layers.

Now, it’s not quite warm enough for you to start buying new swimsuits or blowing up the pool gear, but it is time to make sure that your AC is ready for the warm weather ahead. What happens when your air conditioner doesn’t turn on? Don’t freak out! The first thing that you need to do is contact us for AC repairs in Pueblo, CO. We’re here to sort things out.

Why It Won’t Turn On

So let’s get down to business—why won’t your air conditioner turn on?

A Clogged AC Filter

Your air conditioning filter does more heavy lifting than you might think. Through the season, it can become clogged with debris. Your air filters main function is to keep your AC free of debris and other gunk. If you notice that your air conditioner isn’t performing the way you’re used to, then your first step should be to swap this out.

A Blown Fuse

A blown fuse is a huge reason why your air conditioner might not turn on. Make sure you haven’t blown a fuse. Take a trip over to your circuit breaker and make sure that everything is operating the way it should.

You Need a New Thermostat

Your home’s thermostat could actually be the thing blocking you from getting proper AC service. If your thermostat isn’t on point, then your air conditioner won’t turn on when you need it most.

Dirty Evaporator Coil

All the things that blow through your home on your daily basis build up on your home’s evaporator coils. You wouldn’t think that dirt, pet dander, and other debris would have this much impact on your home, but it does. Have one of out professionals handle everything going on with your air conditioner.

A Bad Condenser

Your condenser lines can get dirty the same way that your air filter does. If you allow dirty condenser lines to exist in your home without interference, it’s going to create significant problems. You might struggle with mold and algae overgrowth over time. Have one of our professionals clean your condenser lines during maintenance.

When You Need a Professional

If you’re not able to troubleshoot with your air conditioner and get it to turn on, then you’re going to need to call a professional. Sometimes, your air conditioner is able to get back on track with something as a simple filter swap. Not all of us can be so lucky though.

The bright side to this is that our professionals are prepared to walk you through everything. We care about your comfort.
