By following our AC Start-up Checklist you can begin enjoying refreshing, air-conditioned, air in your home.

This checklist will allow you to:

  • start-up your air conditioner
  • avoid common start-up errors, and
  • possibly avoid the need to call in a professional air repair technician.

These easy steps help you:

  • rule out the uncomplicated troubleshooting (if your air conditioner isn’t working properly) – AND –
  • maximize the value and performance of your high-efficiency unit (if your AC unit is working properly)

NOTE: Most air conditioning units are designed with AC costs in mind.

By having our skilled technicians annually service your air conditioner – we can help you decrease your cooling costs, increase savings, and enjoy reliable cooling and comfort at an affordable price.

AC Start-up Checklist

1.  Check that you have turned your AC thermostat control to the ON or set it in the “cool” position.

  • This is the basic temperature control for your cooling system.

2. Confirm that the outdoor air conditioning (condensing unit) is running.

  • If the condensing unit is not running, check the circuit breakers inside your home. The circuit breaker box (or electrical panel), will likely be mounted in a wall inside your home. Make sure all circuit breakers are in the “ON” position.
  • Also, check the outdoor unit “disconnect switch” and confirm that it is in the “ON” position. The disconnect switch is by the outdoor unit. (Usually a grey 8″ wide x 16″ high x 4″ deep box mounted on the exterior wall of your home.)

3. Check to make sure that the blower motor in your furnace is properly running in order to optimize performance. (The furnace blower should be running, if the thermostat is set to the “cool” position.)

  • The blower motor allows the forced air to circulate properly.
  • If it is not running, check the on/off switch on the furnace. It should be in the “ON” position.

4. Be sure to change out your furnace filter if you have not done so recently.

  • An excessively blocked filter will prevent air from circulating, which will cause your outdoor AC unit to shut down because of the lack of proper airflow.

5. Check that all air return vents are open and clear and are not blocked by furniture.

  • Furniture should be at a minimum of four inches away from air return vents in order to facilitate adequate air supply.

We hope our AC start-up checklist has been helpful.
