Why Won't My Air Conditioner Turn On?

When the warm weather hits, air conditioning is a household essential. But what happens when your air conditioner won’t turn on? Before you panic – here are a few reasons why you might be having trouble turning your air conditioner on for the new season.

  1. Check Your Thermostat – First, check to make sure that your thermostat is set correctly. You might have knocked into the thermostat through the winter months.
  2. Change Your Batteries – Check to make sure that if your thermostat requires batteries, that the batter is fresh and your thermostat is working correctly.
  3. Check the Circuit Breaker – You might have a tripped fuse. Make sure that there is power running to your air conditioning system.
  4. Change Your Air Filter – If your unit is turning on and off, you might have a problem your unit being dirty. Change the air filter and make sure that the condenser is clean. Removing obstructions should help eliminate the problem.
