Getting to the root of an air conditioning problem can be quite confusing. But with our patented AC Repair Matrix, you will be able to pinpoint the source of failure in your air conditioning system. It covers every twist and turn and if followed would be exactly like having me there doing it for you. And now it is available to you.
Now if you’re ready, there are a few things I need you to do before starting.
1. Go make sure the air filter is clean.
2. Go outside and inspect the ac condenser and copper lines for ice.
If there is ice and it’s a heat pump, turn it into heat for 15 minutes and the ice will melt.
If there is ice, on a gas furnace system. Turn it off for 12 hours, or until all ice is gone.
(Note: just because the ice outside is melted, that doesn’t mean the ice on the inside evaporator is melted.)
(Note: we cannot properly diagnose an air conditioner until all the ice is melted.)
3. Check to make sure there are no tripped breakers for the air conditioner or the fau in the attic or garage.
(Note: If when you flip the AC breaker on it immediately trips, do not turn it back on just go check for a grounded compressor.)
Tools you may need depending on what your problem is.
Once those three things are complete, you may begin the Air Conditioning Repair Matrix on page 1.
(Note: At times if you feel we did not elaborate enough on a certain subject it is probably because certain steps may take a person with certain knowledge and if you do not understand something, it is best to stop re-read and if you still do not understand you may just need a professional.)
(Note: At any time during your search through the workings of an air conditioner if you see any burnt or brittle wires, immediately turn off power and replace the damaged wires.)
Working on or repairing an air conditioner can be very tricky so we’ve taken it all and put into this step by step tool all you have to do is exactly as each page says. If there is a moment where you can’t seem to figure out a step I suggest you stop right there and email us a nice description of where you had trouble and we will elaborate on that subject some more. Since many people use the repair matrix from beginners to pros. We have gone into more detail on certain steps that you may not need.
For professionals feel free to just skip through only addressing the bold print.
Following the bold print is the fastest way to get an ac repaired, but if you don’t already know how to do a step, then just read all the detail for that step.
