With the hottest weather of the summer right around the corner, air conditioners will be put to the test. If your air conditioner stops working and won't turn on, here are a few things to check.
1. Check that the the thermostat is set to "Cool" and has not been unintentionally switched to "Off" or "Heat".
2. Check that the thermostat is set low enough to turn on the unit.
3. Check that the safety switch located on an exterior wall near the condensing unit is set to the "On" position.
4. Check that the circuit breaker that controls the air conditioning compressor and the circuit breaker that controls the furnace blower or air handler, are in the “On” position. If a circuit breaker has tripped, reset the circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker cannot be reset, do not try to reset it again. Have a qualified technician check the unit to determine the cause of the problem.
