Cooling System Troubleshooting Tips from the Pros 

During the heat of the summer, cooling contractors are often very busy with repair service calls.

Emergency air conditioning repair service is available for situations where you just cannot wait for cool air to be restored. However, your cooling problems may be quickly solved through simple troubleshooting. Our NATE-certified cooling repair technicians recommend that you try these steps before you place a call for cooling service. If these steps restore cooled air to your home, you skip the wait and avoid paying for a service call and repairs! 

Check all power sources 

Both the indoor and outdoor cooling units and the thermostat need access to electricity in order to run. 

  • Test power to the indoor unit and thermostat by flipping the fan settings from AUTO to ON – this should turn the blower fan on, telling you the thermostat and indoor air handler have power. 
  • If the thermostat doesn’t show its display, replace the batteries within the unit. If it s wired to you home electric system, check the breaker and flip it on to reset if the breaker was tripped. 
  • Check the breaker box to make sure indoor and outdoor AC units have power – flip breakers to the ON position if they have tripped. 
  • Check the ON/OFF switch at the indoor and outdoor unit to verify proper settings and adjust if necessary. These switches are usually on the equipment’s exterior or located on a nearby wall. 

Set the thermostat 

If your thermostat isn’t set correctly, the air conditioner will not know to turn on. 

  • Set the thermostat temperature a few degrees above the room’s current temperature. This should instruct the air conditioning unit to run a cooling cycle. 

Open vents throughout the house 

It may feel like your air conditioner isn’t producing cool air if room vents are shut. 

  • Check each room’s supply vents. Make sure they are open and unobstructed.  
  • Check all return air vents and make sure no obstructions are blocking the vents. 

Inspect the air filter 

If the air filter is dirty and clogged, cool air has a difficult time moving through the cooling system. 

  • Remove the air filter from its compartment within the indoor cooling unit.  
  • If the filter surface is completely covered with contaminant particles, throw the current filter away and install a new air filter. 

Check the outdoor unit 

Obstructions along the outdoor heat pump or air conditioning condenser unit can inhibit the cooling process. 

  • Brush away grass clippings, leaves, mulch particles, and other outdoor debris that have collected along the unit’s fins. 
  • Pull out weeds, vines, and vegetation growing up along the unit and around its base.
  • Trim branches and bushes near the unit. 
  • Remove furniture and other items stored up against the unit. 

Clear the condensate drain 

A clogged condensate drain can stop your air conditioner from cooling the home’s air. 

  • Remove the access panel on the indoor unit to inspect the drip pan. If the pan is overflowing or has standing water, a clog is likely. 
  • Use a wet/dry vacuum to remove water from the drip pan and suction out any clogs that sit where the pan connects to the drain line. 
  • Outdoors, attach a wet/dry vacuum to the exit of the drain line and run the vacuum to remove clogs in the line. \
  • Run a bleach/water solution through the line to eliminate mold growth that can cause clogs. 

Check equipment panels 

Some cooling equipment models will not run if an access panel is loose or missing. 

  • Inspect the exterior of the air handler or indoor air conditioning equipment. 
  • Make sure all access panels are in place and fit securely along the equipment’s exterior. 

Look for frozen coils 

The evaporator coil within the indoor cooling unit can freeze up, causing the air conditioner to stop and no longer make cool air for the house. 

  • Remove the access panel and look for frost or ice along the coils.  
  • If there is ice on the coils, shut off the air conditioner and allow the coils to thaw before you run another cooling cycle. 
  • Remedy issues that contribute to frozen coils. Check the air filter and replace it if it is dirty. Check the drip pan and condensate drain line for clogs and remove them so condensation can free flow out of the air conditioner. 

If you have performed these troubleshooting steps yet your air conditioner still does not run or produce enough cool air for your home, it’s time to schedule cooling repairs. Contact Buckeye Heating & Cooling to request an appointment for cooling service or ask for emergency cooling repairs.

There are many issues that could prevent your air conditioner from working correctly. One issue could be that you have a blocked or clogged condenser coil.

Most air conditioning units will last 12-20 years, depending on the type of system and how well kept the system is.

It would be recommended to increase the set point of your thermostat when you are away. We do not recommend turning off the unit entirely as it will take a significant amount of energy to bring the home back down to temperature and can introduce problems for appliances and furniture if the temperature and humidity get too high.

Dirty filters will cause poor cold air flow in your air conditioning system. This can cause more severe problems, such as your air conditioner freezing up and becoming inoperable.

Loud noises from your air conditioner can indicate that something is seriously wrong with your unit. The first thing you should do is turn off the system and call a professional to diagnose the problem.

Signs that your A/C unit is broken include: uncomfortable temperatures inside your home, vents pumping warm air, and loud noises coming from your air conditioner.

For your air conditioning unit to run efficiently and effectively, regular maintenance is required. Preventative maintenance keeps your unit healthy and helps prevent larger issues from happening.
