Should you attempt AC system repairs yourself? Keep in mind that since these systems require a significant amount of electricity to run, attempting repairs on your own can jeopardize your safety and that of your family. Working on your system could probably void the warranty by doing the HVAC repairs yourself. However, when your central air system isn’t working as it should, there are a few simple steps to do by yourself to troubleshoot the problem.
Unit Won’t Turn On
Check the circuit breakers – A switch may have been accidentally turned off.
Don’t try to reset the circuit breaker if it’s tripping frequently or seems burned.
Condenser (Outdoor Unit) Won’t Run
Check to see if there is debris blocking the condenser (outdoor unit). Make sure this is addressed in your annual maintenance check.
If cleaning the condenser (outdoor unit) doesn’t solve the issue, the problem is probably electrical and needs to be inspected immediately.
Not Blowing Cold Air
Check the air filters – Dirty or clogged filters will impede airflow. They need to be changed regularly.
Check the vents – Make sure they are clean and not covered by furniture or plants.
Check the outside unit – Ensure the area is free of debris like sticks, stones, leaves, and branches.
When your central air unit is not blowing cold air, it’s possible your unit’s refrigerant needs recharging. The refrigerant is a chemical inside the air conditioner unit that helps cool the air. Typically, this substance never needs recharging unless there is a leak causing the chemical level to decline.
Thermostat Improperly Set
Check to see if your air conditioning unit is on the “fan only” setting.
Air Conditioner Unit is Leaking
While this could be a water leak, it could also be a leaking refrigerant gas, which can be harmful and needs to be inspected immediately by a professional.
No Power to the Thermostat
Check if your thermostat has good working batteries and its setting.
AC Unit Strange Noises
If you notice new banging, buzzing, humming, or other abnormal noises coming from your central air conditioner, get it checked out immediately by a professional.
If none of these solutions helps, it’s time to call in your nearby HVAC professionals at 212 HVAC.

The reasons can range from your circuit breaker tripping, blowing a fuse, clogged air filter, dirty evaporator coils or condenser lines (on your outdoor unit), refrigerant leak, motor, thermostat failure, or there could be a wiring issue.
Check to make sure your thermostat is set to “AUTO”. The next thing to check is your air filter–if it’s dirty, change it. If these are not an issue, the problem may be serious. It is likely a professional will need to be called in.
First, you need to identify if the noise is coming from the indoor or the outdoor component of your AC unit. If indoor, there may be something obstructing proper airflow. If outdoors, several underlying issues may be the cause, such as too much internal pressure in the AC unit, a refrigerant leak, or an electrical issue.
