  1. Check Your Air Filter

Think of your air filter as the gatekeeper between hot dusty air and clean, cool bliss. Changing your filter regularly is crucial to keeping your AC healthly. Clogged up AC filters will ruin the quality of the air in your home and can sometimes lead to a complete system malfunction. Some studies even show that a dirty air filter can reduce AC efficiency by up to 10%!

  1. Check The Circuit Breaker

Circuits get tripped all the time. It’s an easy fix if you know what to look for. Just find the circuit breaker in the breaker box and flip the switch. If this keeps happening, reach out to an electrician as there could be more advanced and unsafe issues at hand.

  1. Check The Coil On The Outside Of Your Machine
