If your thermostat isn’t telling your system to run, it won’t activate.
The main step is making sure it’s switched to “cool” and not “heat.” Otherwise your AC might not turn on. Or you could receive. warm air moving from vents because the heater is running instead.
If you’re using a digital thermostat:
- Put in new batteries if the readout is clear. If the screen is presenting jumbled numbers, get a new thermostat.
- Ensure the right mode is displaying. If you can’t update it, override it by dropping the temperature and hitting the “hold” button. This will cause your AC to run if scheduling is not right.
- Attempt to set the thermostat 5 degrees below the room’s temperature. Your AC won’t work if the thermostat is identical to the room’s temperature.
Once your thermostat is adjusted correctly, you should receive cool air fast.
