Is There a Reset Button on My AC Unit? DIY FAQs
When starting DIY projects, you may have a lot of questions about the equipment you are working with, and those questions can lead to more questions. Is there a rest button on my ac unit? Outside or inside? How do I reset my air conditioner? The answers to these types of questions can help your DIY project go smoothly and safely. Luckily, trained professionals at Same Day Heating & Air Conditioning are here to help! We have crafted a guide to some of the most common DIY FAQs, to help you with your next HVAC DIY project.
Reset Button on AC Unit – Outside
On most AC units, you will be able to find the reset button on the exterior of the condenser unit. This is the portion of your system that you will find outdoors around your house. You should be able to spot this easily, as it is often a relatively large red button. If you can’t seem to find the button on the exterior of the unit, it is possible that it could be inside the condenser behind the service panel. Be careful though, you will want to shut down the system before you look inside the condenser.
This can be helpful for any DIY project that requires you to reset your air conditioner at the beginning or end of it.
How Often Should I Replace My AC Filters
One of the reasons you may need to reset your AC unit is because it is running slowly. A main factor that could be harming the efficiency of your system is dirty AC filters. So, how often should you change the filters on your AC unit? We recommend changing or cleaning them every 3 months or so. This will help your system run as smooth as possible.

How Can I Fix Uneven Temperatures Throughout My Home?
Have you ever noticed that different areas of your home feel warmer or cooler? Why does this happen and how can you fix it? The most likely reason that you would notice this is because of poor insulation throughout your home. The best thing you can do for this is to checkout your windows. If a certain window lets a lot of sun in, occasionally cover it with a drape. Also, be sure to make sure the window liners are attached properly and not broken.
This should help with your uneven temperature problem. Cleaning or replacing the air filters as mentioned above, can also be a big help to this problem.
