For more than 30 years, Compton Air Conditioning & Heating has been providing home and business owners throughout the San Antonio, TX, area with professional service. With so many years of experience, the company has put together a list of common problems that consumers can take care of themselves. Now, Compton Air Conditioning & Heating wants to share this information with its clients to help them save money by avoiding unnecessary service calls.
As the technicians at Compton Air Conditioning & Heating know, it pays to always check the simple things first. Often all it takes to get an AC system blowing cool air again is a simple cleaning, a job that requires very little technical skill. Cleaning the inside of an outdoor AC unit may take the better part of an afternoon, but for many that will be better than having to pay for a professional to do such a simple job.
Another DIY solution Compton Air Conditioning & Heating has found to be effective involves AC systems that don't want to turn on. Again, it pays to check for the simple problems before calling a service tech. The company suggests homeowners first check their thermostat to ensure the settings are correct, then take a look at several power switches - most systems will have a switch on the home's main electrical panel and one set near the outside unit. Many times a system won't start because of a simple tripped breaker.
Water pooling near the outdoor AC unit is another problem that Compton Air Conditioning & Heating often sees. In many cases, this is another easy fix. First, check to make sure none of the pipes are leaking, and replace any that are. The company also offers tips on how to check the pumps condensate pan, which regulates when the pump starts. For those looking to take a more proactive DIY approach to their AC system's maintenance, Compton Air Conditioning & Heating is ready to help.
