If your thermostat isn’t giving a sign to your air conditioner to start, it won’t activate.
The main part is checking it’s switched to “cool” and not “heat.” Otherwise your air conditioning might not turn on. Or you might receive. warm air blowing from vents being the heat is on instead.
If you’re using a regular thermostat:
- Swap out the batteries if the monitor is blank. If the monitor is presenting jumbled letters, buy a new thermostat.
- Ensure the proper mode is displaying. If you can’t update it, override it by dropping the temperature and pushing the “hold” button. This will make your AC start if programming is not right.
- Attempt to set the thermostat 5 degrees below the house’s temperature. Your AC won’t work if the thermostat is set the same as the room’s temperature.
Once your thermostat is adjusted properly, you should begin getting cool air fast.
