Air Conditioning FAQ: What is an Air Conditioning Electrical Problem?

Monday, February 4th, 2013 at 8:30 am

When it is hot outside the last thing that you want to deal with in your Melbourne, FL  home is a busted air conditioner. With a proper installation and professional air conditioning maintenance service your AC should be pretty reliable. No mechanical system is perfect, though, and there is a very good chance that you will experience some trouble with your air conditioning system over the span of its lifetime. In many cases these problems with your air conditioner will be traced back to electrical problems. Anytime an electrical repair is made it must be completed by a qualified professional. Call Next Generation Air & Heat Inc. when your air conditioner is in trouble.

One of the most obvious signs that there is an electrical problem with your air conditioner is if your AC simply will not turn on. There are a few underlying causes that may lead to this situation. There may be a simple solution such as a tripped circuit break or compromised power line. Always check to make sure that your unit is actually hooked up to a power supply and that the circuit breaker has not been tripped.

Other situations require more serious solutions. A contactor, for instance, may be damaged. Your capacitator or fan motor may also be in poor condition or experiencing electrical problems. If your thermostat wiring is faulty then the device will not be able to regulate temperatures properly. Your air conditioner may still operate even with an electrical problem, but not safely or efficiently.

Whatever the situation, it is important that a professional handles the repair service. There is no way for anyone other than a qualified service technician to handle this sort of repair in a safe manner. Call an expert when you suspect an electrical problem with your air conditioner.
