What is Emergency Air Conditioner Repair?

Emergency air conditioner repair focuses on people whose air conditioner has suddenly stopped working. When an air conditioner does this, it can be a nightmare. Family members and household pets will be uncomfortable, and pets are more likely to become dehydrated due to the heat. Businesses that suddenly have no air conditioning will find that customers do not want to come into the store, and if they do, they will not stay longer than they have to. This can have a devastating impact on revenue. It is important that both residential and commercial customers get the air conditioning fixed as quickly as possible. Reach out to our trained RiteTemp A/C & Heating, LLC staff if you are in need of emergency air conditioning services. Give us a call at (240) 640-6578 for your emergency air conditioner repair in Lanham, MD.

Check for Quick Fixes

Start off by checking for common problems that have quick fixes. This can help save you both time and money. There are several common reasons that an air conditioner can stop working that business and homeowners can solve themselves. First, make sure that all of your air conditioner units are plugged in. Although this seems like common sense, we receive plenty of calls because a person tripped over the cord. That trip pulled the plug from the wall just far enough that the unit was not receiving power, yet it did not pull it out of the wall enough that the unit appeared to be unplugged. This is a common occurrence in houses that have a window unit for their air conditioning needs. Take a brief moment to ensure that the unit is properly plugged in. If it is, check to make sure that the outlet is working properly. Unplug the air conditioner and plug a small appliance, such as an electric can opener, or a nightlight into the outlet. If the other item works, it means that the outlet is not the problem. If it does not work, the problem could be the outlet and not the air conditioner.

Homeowners that discover their outlet is not working properly will need to check the breaker box to ensure that they did not blow a breaker. If they did, it can easily be fixed by flipping the breaker back into its normal position. Those that experience this problem frequently will need to contact an electrician. Sometimes, the outlet is not the problem, and there is something wrong with the air conditioner. Before spending money on a professional, check the filter. If the filter is dirty or clogged, air conditioners will not push out air that is as cold as it should be. Modern units may be designed to not turn on if the filter needs cleaning in an effort to prolong the life of the air conditioner. After double checking the filter and cleaning it, check to see if the unit works yet. If you would like to learn more about emergency air conditioner repair in Lanham, MD contact us today.
