Common Reasons Your Air Conditioner Isn’t Working

Typically, air conditioners are dependable. But, like with any machine, they are prone to breaking down.

Common reasons your air conditioner isn’t working include:


As one would expect, ACs break down with age. You should replace your system every 10 to 15 years.

Electronic Control Failure

Corroded wires and terminals are common issues. During our inspection, we will check all electrical connections and contacts.

System Cycling

When you have a system cycling issue, something is preventing your unit from completing a full cooling cycle.

Thermostat Issues

If your thermostat has bad batteries, has a bad fuse, etc., it can’t send signals to control your unit.

Frozen Evaporator Coils

To some, frozen evaporator coils might not seem like a major issue. But frozen coils can actually cause your compressor to burn out. So, if you notice this problem, call for help ASAP.

Clogged Drain

Newer systems alert you when your AC drain line is clogged. You can also check it when you change your filter.

Dirty Condenser Coils

Dirty condenser coils create a barrier that blocks proper airflow. Regular maintenance will prevent these buildups from happening.

Fan Problems

If your AC’s fan isn’t spinning, you might have a bad capacitor or fan motor.

Leaking Ducts

Air flows throughout your home via your ductwork. Ducts tend to contract and expand, making them susceptible to cracks. Air can leak out of these cracks, preventing it from properly cooling your home.

Low Refrigerant

Your unit uses refrigerant to cool your home. However, it doesn’t use refrigerant like a car uses gas. It simply undergoes phase changes.

So, the only reason you would have low refrigerant is because of a leak. Contact our team today so we can detect/repair the leak and top off your refrigerant as needed!
