Moving Tips: Troubleshooting Your AC

May 28th, 2013

Moving into a new home can be a stressful and chaotic process. While your new home should have been inspected prior to the move in, it’s not uncommon for new homeowners to find themselves with no running water, no electricity, or other issues upon moving in.

The last thing you want when moving on a hot summer day is for your air conditioning to not be functioning properly. Your first night in your new home should be spent celebrating, not sweating. Here are some steps to take to see what may be wrong and to get the unit running without having to call in the pros:

  • Make sure the unit is receiving power. Check for any blown fuses or a tripped circuit breaker.
  • If your unit has a reset button, let the motor cool and then press the button. If this doesn’t work, allow the motor to cool again and try this process at least two more times.
  • Some units have a separate power switch, so just be sure that this is turned on.
  • Make sure the thermostat is properly set, raise or lower the setting 5 degrees to check.
  • If your unit uses gas, check that the gas supply is turned on and the pilot light is lit. If you have a unit that uses oil, make sure you have a proper supply of oil.
