Try going outside and locate your outdoor unit. If the thermostat is on, and the fan is running inside, the outdoor unit should be on as well. If it isn't, locate the circuit breakers in your breaker box. There will be two. Trip them back and all the way forward.

If the unit is running outside, sometimes the air cond contractor forgets to come back and charge the unit with refrigerant. In this case be sure to contact the air cond contractor that installed the unit.

Air Conditioners Cooling Tips


  • Whole-house fans help cool your home by pulling cool air through the house and exhausting warm air through the attic.
  • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer. The smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall cooling bill will be.
  • Avoid setting your thermostat at a colder setting than normal when you turn on your air conditioner. It will not cool your home any faster and could result in excessive cooling and, therefore, unnecessary expense.
  • Consider using an interior fan in conjunction with your window air conditioner to spread the cooled air more effectively through your home without greatly increasing your power use.
  • Avoid placing lamps or TV sets near your air-conditioning thermostat. The thermostat senses heat from these appliances, which can cause the air conditioner to run longer than necessary.
  • Plant trees or shrubs to shade air conditioning units but not to block the airflow. Place your room air conditioner on the north side of the house. A unit operating in the shade uses as much as 10% less electricity than the same one operating in the sun.

    My air conditioner starts blowing like a fan before my apartment is cooled off, why does it kick off and on like this?


    When you first turn it on the fan runs and after a few minutes the outside unit comes on, once the outside unit comes on it take time for it to cool the coils which cool the house, And a/c does not really cool the air,It removes the heat that is in the air.

    A/c unit just blows cool air not cold air at the high range


    mcdevito75 here, have your local a/c shop check it out they come to the house. You can check to make sure you have the unit on cool and that the filter is clean. Unit could use serviceing if not done in 2 years, specific cleaning and a charge of freon gas.

    MY AIR CONDITIONER TRIPPED ,NOW IT WONT COME BACK


    Unplug unit let set till cool then turn on motor has heat trip button that will pop out so it wont over heat, It should pop back in when it cools off. Make sure filter is clean and condenser is not iced over by high humidity. If unit still wont come on check house fuse or breaker it should be on a circuit by it's shelf, flip it off and back on so it is closed all the way.

    Air conditioning unit not cooling


    the problem sounds like a defective capacitor its located on the condensing unit outside, also a contactor that is used can be defective also.
