What do you do when your air conditioning unit suddenly stops working on a hot day? No, “panic” is not the correct answer. AC units can fail for many reasons. Before calling a professional, there are a few things you could do to identify the problem.
First, turn off your thermostat and check your air filter. Many times, when an air conditioning unit stops working, it is due to excess debris built up in the systems filter. This prevents air from flowing freely. If the debris backup gets excessive enough, the system can stop working completely.
If your filter is clean, check the thermostat batteries. If the batteries are dead, the thermostat cannot tell the air conditioning unit to turn on.
If the air conditioning unit is still not responding, you have a problem that requires professional help. It’s still not the time to panic!
