If your air conditioner does not seem to be working as well as it did in the past, it may be in need of maintenance. It’s important to keep your air conditioning maintained in order to help prevent serious damage to the system. If you or someone you know is handy, there are certain do-it-yourself air conditioning repairs that can be completed without the help of a professional. But it’s important to keep in mind that you should not try to complete air conditioning repair or plumbing repair if you think it requires technical skills that you do not have. It is possible to cause great damage to your air conditioner by trying to repair complicated problems when you do not have proper expertise.

Here are a few air conditioner maintenance items that you may be able to complete on your own:

Your air conditioning system will not turn on. It is common at the beginning of the hot season for homeowners to have air conditioning systems that don’t seem to function properly. If your air conditioning system will not turn on, no matter how you set the thermostat, make sure to check the circuit breaker. The breaker may have tripped at any point during the winter. If your system will not turn on, make sure to check the breaker box. Repairing your air conditioning problem might be as simple as flipping the switch in your breaker box.

Your thermostat is not set properly. These days, many thermostats are digital and programmable. If your thermostat is not set correctly because the power in your house went out and the thermostat re-set itself, or because the battery in your thermostat went dead, you may be able to re-set the thermostat yourself. Today’s most modern thermostats can be complicated, so don’t be surprised if you have to call a Denver air conditioner repair company for help.

Your HVAC system’s air filter is dirty and must be replaced. It should be relatively simple for most homeowners to change their system’s air filter. This is something that should be completed on a regular basis. Changing a dirty air filter can be as easy as sliding out the dirty filter, and sliding in a new one. If changing the air filter in your HVAC system seems complicated, make sure to ask your HVAC technician for assistance.
