Air Conditioner Repair Troubleshooting

You will also find thermostat troubleshooting articles in this category as air conditioners do require thermostats to operate. Basic electrical circuits and refrigeration are another group of articles we have included in this category. Anything to help with effectively troubleshooting your air conditioner.

Thermostats - most of the time someones air conditioner does not work they think it is the thermostat. Many times it is not the thermostat but something else altogether. We are saying the problem can’t be with the thermostat we are simply saying in most cases it is not the thermostat. I ran service calls for a company for many years working on heating and cooling equipment in both the commercial and the residential sectors. Many times people would tell me they think it is their thermostat that is the problem. I would often find some other problem with the system.

Refrigeration - refrigeration is how your air condition provides cooling is a major part of your air conditioner. Since many articles involving air conditioning also reside in the Refrigeration Category we decided to move the articles relevant to air conditioner troubleshooting into this new category - Air Conditioner Repair Troubleshooting.
