Problems with your air conditioner in your home can happen due to several reasons. Sometimes you can resolve issues with your AC unit by resetting it. Turning your unit off and on can fix a variety of problems, and it’s often recommended that you do this if you’re dealing with any issues. Understanding how to safely reset your unit can help you avoid reaching out to a repair technician. It will also save you a lot of time. Here are a few simple tips on how you can reset your air conditioning unit.
Turn It Off
The first step in resetting your air conditioner is to find the shutoff button near the outdoor unit. It’s also a good idea to make sure the thermostat is set to off before you turn off your AC unit. Making sure everything is shut off is essential to safety while you are resetting your air conditioner.
Locate Circuit Breaker
The next step is to find the circuit breaker for your home. Typically, a circuit breaker is located in closets, crawl spaces, or the basement. Once found, you will need to find the breaker that’s linked to your air conditioner and turn it off. It’s also critical to wait at least a minute before you turn it on again.
Turn the AC Back on
After a minute is complete, you can switch it back on while also turning on the thermostat. Set your thermostat to a specific temperature for your home, and see if the AC unit will come back on and begin working properly. If not, it’s always a good idea to contact an HVAC company to further investigate the problem.
