What to Do When Your Air Conditioner Breaks

Last updated 6 years ago

While air conditioning units are built to last, they can sometimes fail, especially if routine maintenance has not been performed. If your air conditioner suddenly stops working, complete the following steps to help get your unit up and running again as soon as possible.

Be Sure The Power Is On

It is possible that a power outage or surge has caused power to stop flowing to your unit. In this case, the problem is most likely not originating from your air conditioner. Check to see if other appliances are working. If they are, take a look at the circuits on your electrical service panel. Reset any tripped circuit breakers, turn your air conditioning unit on, and check to see if it begins working as it should.

Determine If A/C Unit Is Turning On

If the problem with your air conditioning does not seem to originate with its power source, the air conditioner itself is most likely broken. Turn your air conditioning unit on and check to see if it is responding or not. Your air conditioner may turn on but fail to cool air or it may be completely unresponsive. This information is helpful to know when calling a repair service to have the air conditioning unit serviced.

Find Out Model Information and Call HVAC Repair

Find out what the model number and serial number of your air conditioning unit are and write this information down. You can generally find these numbers on a sticker on the side or back of your unit. Next, call a professional HVAC repair service and explain the problems that your HVAC system is experiencing. Provide the repair service with your air conditioner’s model information, as they may use this information when choosing the replacement parts that you may need. You should then schedule a repair service for your unit.
