Air Conditioning Repair Services
If your air conditioner stopped working first go though this checklist before calling for A/C Repair Service. It may be something simple you can resolve. This example would be for a split system where the A/C is outside on the ground and the furnace and evaporator coil is in the house.
No Air Flow?
-Change your HVAC air filter if dirty
-Open all registers
Air Conditioner still not working? Most likely problem is — Bad blower motor/ capacitor, bad control board
Outside unit not turning on?
-Check the outside unit, if not turning on reset the breaker labeled A/C. Air conditioning still not working? Most likely problem is — bad capacitor(s), bad condenser fan motor, bad compressor, failed contactor
Outside unit turning on but air conditioner not cooling (sudden problem)?
-Confirm the condensing unit is coming on. Is this a sudden problem where the a/c was working great and now suddenly stopped cooling? Most likely problem is -Compressor failing to start due to weak capacitor/ lacking a proper start capacitor.
Outside unit turning on but air conditioner not cooling (performance has been declining over time)?
-Check to see if the outside condensing unit is coming on and there is airflow inside the house. Most likely problem is — Refrigerant leak that is most likely in the evaporator coil (the coil that gets cold when running the A/C).
Nothings Happening / Thermostat is blank
-Change the thermostat batteries. If the air conditioner starts working Great! I have some tips on A/C Maintenance you can do yourself.
-Reset breaker labeled furnace on main panel Air conditioner till not working? Most likely problem is — low voltage short in the system, bad thermostat
Water leaking from air conditioning unit or from secondary drain?
-The air conditioner's primary drain is (usually about 6 inches off the ground next to the A/C) Connect a wet/dry shop-vac to the drain and suck it out for a minute or so. If you collect a lot of water and its very dirty you may have unclogged the line, causing the water to get backed up. This resolves air conditioning water leaks, most of the time. Run the HVAC unit and monitor the problem. Call for service if it continues to improperly drain.
