Imagine this scene playing out in your home: You’re in your living room, sitting on the couch relaxing. It’s an 85°F day, but that’s alright! After all, your air conditioner is blasting away, providing you with cool air that makes you feel perfectly comfortable. Until suddenly, it stops working.
What do you do next? If you’re like most folks, you probably head over to your thermostat. Maybe you see that the settings are correct and the device seems to be working okay. So next is the circuit breaker panel—did the breaker for the AC trip? Nope, that’s fine too. So what’s happening?
You go ahead and call for emergency repairs, but you have to wait because everyone’s doing the same thing on this hot day. Now you’re stuck not only feeling frustrated, but uncomfortable too.
Well, hopefully, you’ll never have this scenario play out. Read on as we uncover some major clues that it’s time to call an HVAC pro for a small repair need before it grows into a much bigger problem, like the one we just outlined.
