Common A/C Problems: Faulty Wiring

Home ThermostatHaving problems with faulty wiring in your air conditioning unit can be hazardous. There are a few indications of bad wiring that you can look for and determine whether it is time to have it repaired.

Exposed wires around the A/C unit is typically seen with improper installation of the air conditioner equipment. Bad wiring is not only a fire hazard but it can allow moisture into the unit and create the need for expensive repairs. Have a professional come out to fix the exposed wiring.

If the circuit breaker keeps getting tripped when the air conditioner tries to run, there might be a problem with the wiring inside the unit. If the breaker continues to trip, don’t keep switching it back on because this will just cause more damage. Other causes of the breaker being tripped may be a dirty air filter or blocked airways. This is something that can be checked and cleaned up quickly without needing any repairs.

The thermostat could be a source of bad wiring if it has not been properly maintained or if it is an older model. Upgrading an older model will not only fix any wiring problems but can also make it easier to make cooling your home more energy efficient.
