What to Do When Your AC Isn’t Working

If your air conditioner has stopped working, don’t worry just yet. There are several quick checks you can perform yourself before calling in the professionals from Around The Town Heating & Cooling.

Troubleshooting Tips:

  1. Check for Leaks: If there’s water pooling around your AC, inspect the drain tubes for blockages or damage. Often, simply replacing a kinked or clogged tube can resolve the issue.
  2. Power Issues: Ensure your air conditioner is getting power. Check your home’s electrical panel for a tripped breaker. If resetting the breaker doesn’t help, the next step is to examine your thermostat settings.
  3. Inadequate Cooling: If your AC is on but not cooling effectively, dust or debris might be clogging your compressor. Cleaning it might improve performance. Additionally, consider whether recent home modifications or the age of your unit necessitate a larger or newer model.

If these simple solutions don’t resolve the problem, it may be time to call Around The Town for a thorough diagnosis and expert repair. In some cases, investing in a new air conditioning unit may be more economical than continued repairs on an older model. Remember, timely and professional intervention can save you money and extend the life of your AC.
