If your thermostat isn’t signaling your system to work, it won’t activate.
The main part is checking it’s set to “cool” and not “heat.” Otherwise your air conditioning will probably not turn on. Or you could have. heated air moving from vents being the heater is on instead.
If you have a traditional thermostat:
- Replace the batteries if the monitor is blank. If the readout is displaying garbled characters, get a new thermostat.
- Check the right mode is showing. If you can’t update it, cancel it by dropping the temperature and hitting the “hold” button. This will force your AC to work if the configuration is not right.
- Try setting the thermostat 5 degrees cooler than the space’s temperature. Your AC won’t work if the thermostat matches the room’s temperature.
Once your thermostat is adjusted accurately, you should start getting cool air promptly.
