HVAC Troubleshooting Tips If Your Air Conditioner Isn’t Cooling

HVAC Troubleshooting - CCC

June is here, and that means the heat of summer is not far behind. Is your air conditioning system ready? One sure way to answer that question is to schedule regular maintenance, better known as a tune-up. But if your system is not working properly or at all, you can also perform some HVAC troubleshooting to help determine the problem.

Here are a few troubleshooting tasks/tips if your system will not turn on or if the air conditioner is not cooling:

  • Is your thermostat in cooling mode or on auto? Verify the temperature and see that the thermostat is set to the A/C position and turned to the on position. If you are unable to get it to function properly, you could have a bad thermostat.
  • Verify the breaker has not been tripped on the outside condensing unit and that the emergency switch on the blower inside has not been turned off accidentally. If the breaker is tripped, try resetting it. If it trips again, call our company where you will have an authorized technician dispatched immediately, before trying again.
  • Is there ice on your outdoor unit or refrigeration line? If so, turn the system off at the thermostat and put it in fan mode; your service technician cannot work on units if they are frozen. This issue could mean that your system is low on refrigerant or has a system leak.
  • Make sure the air filter has been recently changed and/or cleaned.

If none of these troubleshooting efforts work, give Climate Control a call for service and remember: regular maintenance is critical to keep your system in top shape.
