Not sure where to start when troubleshooting air conditioning?  Is your system not working as hard as you want?  Are you missing comfort in your own home?  It can be a real pain when your AC goes out, especially in the middle of summer! There might be something you can do to get that cold air flowing again.  Here are a few tips to try to get your AC unit up and running again:

Check to make sure the thermostat is set right.  Seriously.  None of us want to admit we do it, but sometimes the simplest fix is the right one.  Just check to make sure your thermostat is set to cool the room and that the temperature setting is lower than room temperature.  If it isn't, change it and give the system a little while to start pumping out the cool air again.

If your air conditioning isn't running at all it may be because a circuit has been tripped.  Try checking the fuses in your home to see if any have been tripped.  Hopefully, resetting it will get your comfort back online.  It's also a good idea to mark which fuse powers your AC.  Doing it now could save you some time and some head ache in the future.

If the fan is blowing on your and you just aren't feeling cold air, you might want to check the unit for a copper line. If you can find it, it should be cool to the touch.  If it isn't, your unit might be low on Freon, and you'll need a professional's help.


Carefully, take a look inside the AC unit.  Don't open it and get inside if you don't know what you are doing, but if you look in the top and see lots of debris and dirt you've found the reason you aren't getting any cool air.  Cleaning this out of the system might be something you can do on your own, but it is safer to call a professional, someone who works on these units for a living and knows how to get in and clean without hurting themselves or the system.


Hopefully these tips can help you when you're troubleshooting air conditioning! But remember, this won't be the end-all be-all list for everything that could go wrong with your AC.  When in doubt, call a professional and stay safe!
