The summer heat can get intense, so your home must be able to stay cool to meet your needs this summer; which in this case, may require an AC reset. A reliable air conditioning unit is a valuable resource during the summer months, but if you’ve found that your AC unit has stopped working, you should take care of this issue quickly.
To get your AC running again, you may need to perform a reset on your unit. While a professional could help you with this, there’s no need to get one involved. By performing a reset on your unit yourself, you can get the air back to flowing through your home without having to wait for a technician to arrive.
At Atchley Air, we want to make this process as easy as possible for you. That’s why we’ve put together these tips to help you successfully perform an AC unit reset.
Why Does My AC Need a Reset?
A common reason for having to reset your air conditioning is a power outage. During a power outage, your AC unit can shut off with the rest of your electronics. However, you may find that even when the lights come back on, your AC is still out. By performing a reset, you can get your AC working again.
Performing the Reset
While some AC units have an AC reset button, not all of them do. If your AC does not have its own button, you can still manually reset your unit by following the steps below.
- To reset your AC unit, the first step you should take is to turn your unit off. Also turn off your thermostat. This will help keep you safe by avoiding any problems with electricity.
- After your unit is off, you will need to go to wherever your circuit breakers are located. You will need to find which switch controls your air conditioning unit, and once you have found it, you will need to turn that off as well.
- After you turn off the circuit breaker for your AC, you should wait a full minute. After the minute has passed, it is okay to turn your unit back on. To do so you will need to switch your breaker back on and turn on your unit and thermostat.
Your safety is important, as is the safety of your home. That’s why if you are experiencing problems resetting your breaker, you should call a professional. At Atchley Air, we’re more than happy to help you.
