Nearly every business and homeowner dreads the summer months. With temperatures steadily rising to unacceptable levels, staying cool can be a full-time job. One of the most important appliances for this is an air conditioning unit. It’s where people go to escape the sweltering heat outside. But what happens when it breaks? Whether it’s after an intense thunderstorm or a simple power outage, fixing an A/C unit can be a hassle.
In the most common situation, an air conditioning unit will stop working after a power outage. When this happens, it is usually due to a tripped circuit breaker, blown fuse, or faulty wiring. It’s important not to ignore these problems because ignoring them could cause damage to the unit that costs more money to fix. Not only that, but it’s also dangerous because faulty wiring can cause fires.
A second common reason an air conditioner will stop working is if there was an intense storm where lightning struck close by or somewhere on your property. It takes a large amount of voltage for this to happen, but when it does, it can destroy the unit.
Having your air conditioning unit serviced is very important for those that live in areas with extremes weather changes. During the summer and winter months (in colder climates) an air conditioner has to work harder than normal and it needs to be checked regularly so any problems can be fixed.
