Troubleshooting Tips: Hot Water Heater and Air Conditioning


Hot Water Heater Troubleshooting Tips

  1. Check Power Supply: Ensure the water heater is receiving power. Check the circuit breaker or fuse box to see if the circuit has tripped or blown.
  2. Gas Supply (for gas heaters): Make sure the gas supply is turned on. Check the pilot light if you have a gas heater; it may need relighting.
  3. Temperature Settings: Verify that the temperature settings on the heater are appropriate. Sometimes adjustments are accidentally made, causing water not to heat to the desired level.
  4. Thermostat Inspection: Test the thermostat by adjusting it to a higher temperature than the current setting. Listen for a click indicating that it’s working.

Air Conditioning Troubleshooting Tips

  1. Check Power Supply: Ensure the air conditioner is receiving power. Check the circuit breaker or fuse box to see if the circuit has tripped or blown.
  2. Thermostat Settings: Verify that the thermostat is set to “cool” mode and the temperature setting is lower than the current room temperature.
  3. Inspect Air Filters: Dirty air filters can restrict airflow and reduce cooling efficiency. Check and replace the air filters if they are dirty or clogged.
  4. Clear Obstructions: Make sure there are no obstructions blocking the airflow around the outdoor unit. Remove any debris, leaves, or vegetation that may be obstructing the airflow.

By following these troubleshooting tips, you may be able to identify and resolve issues with your hot water heater and air conditioning system without needing to call an HVAC professional. If problems persist or if you’re unsure about any step, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We are here to help!
