Did your air conditioner mysteriously stop running?
How about you give this DIY a try before paying us or any other air conditioning company? Just about anyone can do it. The only tool you’ll need is a shop vac, which you can purchase for as low as $40. Hint – shop vacs are much cheaper than visits from an air conditioning company!
The number one cause of an air conditioner “not working” is actually not anything to do with the air conditioner itself. Instead the culprit is often a clog in the condensation drain line. Ironically, the fact that your AC is not running may be an indication that it is working exactly as it should. You see, a clogged drain line activates a safety switch to shut down your air conditioner. In short, this process is in place to prevent water from the clogged drain line from overflowing and flooding the area your indoor portion of your AC is located. Some air conditioners are even located in attic spaces. Subsequently, you can imagine the costly damage that could result from an overflowing drain line in your attic!
What if you can save yourself some time, money and frustration?
Furthermore, what if you can get your AC up and running quickly, before you even break a sweat? Don’t put yourself at the mercy of an AC company’s schedule unnecessarily.
