Air conditioner not working, or working but not cooling?

My Air Conditioner is not working, is there anything I can do to fix it myself?

Central air conditioner problems usually happen during heat waves because your air conditioning system is working overtime. Of course, this is also the time that air conditioner repair companies are the busiest. If your central air conditioning system is not cooling properly, there are a few things that homeowners can try to fix themselves.  

  • Check the electrical panel: homeowners can check the main electrical panel and reset the breaker by turning it off and then back on.  
  • Make sure the thermostat is set properly: the thermostat should be set to “COOL” and the temperature setting should be lower than the room temperature. 
  • Replace the furnace filterIf your air conditioner is working but not cooling, the most likely cause is a clogged filter. Your AC system uses the blower from your furnace to circulate the air in your home. Therefore, your furnace filter still needs to be changed regularly in the summer. A dirty filter can block airflow and cause your AC system to stop working.
