DIY Air Conditioning Troubleshooting

Before calling for professional assistance, it can be helpful to do some troubleshooting:

  • Ensure your thermostat is set to COOL with the fan set to AUTO.
  • Check for a clogged air filter and replace it if needed.
  • Check for a tripped breaker and flip it back on if needed.

If your issues persist, call (410) 525-4265 to schedule emergency AC repair for your Baltimore home.

Common Causes of AC Breakdowns

A cooling breakdown is more than a minor inconvenience when it’s hot out. There are many reasons why your system may break down, including:

  • Damaged or frozen evaporator coils
  • Dirty air conditioner condenser coils
  • Refrigerant leaks
  • Clogged condensate drain lines
  • Bad capacitors
  • Burnt out contactors
  • Damaged fan blades
  • Overheated compressors

If your AC breaks down in the summer heat, contact UAT online or call (410) 525-4265 for 24/7 emergency repair!

Air Conditioning Repair vs. Replacement

If your cooling system is broken down, you may need to choose whether to replace or repair your air conditioner. Consider the following factors when making this decision:

  • System age: Routine AC maintenance will help your unit last for 10 to 15 years. Replacement may be the best option if your system is nearing the end of its service life and requires frequent repairs. However, newer systems can often be repaired and are still under warranty.
  • Cost of repair: A new system may be a better investment if repair bills are piling up or you need repairs that are more than half the cost of an air conditioning replacement. Relatively inexpensive repairs are just a part of owning an HVAC system.
  • Breakdown severity: Major breakdowns caused by issues like faulty compressors may warrant a system replacement. If your breakdown was caused by a minor issue that’s easy to fix, AC repair is likely your best choice.

Whether you need repair or replacement, the technicians at United Air Temp have you covered.

Call us today at (410) 525-4265 to request AC service, and we’ll recommend the right solution for your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most AC systems run at maximum capacity when outdoor temperatures reach 95 degrees. When this happens, your home won’t get below 78 to 80 degrees.

Lowering the thermostat puts more strain on your air conditioner and the power grid, as everyone else in your neighborhood is likely doing the same.

If you have power to your air conditioner, but it’s not cooling your home, there could be a variety of causes, including:

  • Frozen evaporator coils
  • Leaking refrigerant
  • Clogged condenser coils

Call an emergency HVAC technician to diagnose your system and provide reliable repairs.

First, set your thermostat from COOL to OFF. You should then change the fan setting from AUTO to ON.

The fan will defrost the system over the span of an hour or more. Once the ice has melted, you can turn it back on and reset the fan to AUTO.

If the issue persists, you need emergency AC repair.
