DIY Air Conditioning Troubleshooting
While we are here for you when you need us, you can also try to troubleshoot your issue before you call:
Check the thermostat: Ensure the thermostat is set to cool, not auto or heat. If the thermostat isn’t working at all, try replacing the batteries.
Change the air filter: A clogged filter prevents airflow, which will cause your system to overheat and shut down.
Check the breaker: If you have a tripped breaker, flip it back on to restore power. Don’t hesitate to request professional service if you have frequently tripped breakers, as this indicates a larger underlying issue.
If you’re still having air conditioning problems, call us at (904) 831-1096 for emergency service in Jacksonville.
Common Causes of Air Conditioning Breakdowns
Many factors can cause your air conditioner to break down. Some reasons we see often include:
Evaporator coil problems
Dirty condenser coils
Clogged drainage lines
Our technicians are experts at getting to the bottom of these problems, so let us help you find the underlying cause of your air conditioning breakdown.
Air Conditioning Repair vs. Air Conditioning Replacement
When your AC breaks down, you may wonder if you’ll need to replace the unit or if a repair will restore your comfort. The answer depends on the problem you have.
Air conditioning replacement is the better investment if the repairs needed cost 50% or more of the cost of a new unit or your system is 10 years old or older, meaning it’s no longer under warranty.
However, if you rarely have problems with your AC, then air conditioning repair likely makes the most sense.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why does extreme heat cause AC breakdowns?
There are a few reasons this can occur, but mostly it comes down to the fact that extreme heat also means your air conditioner is going to be running a lot more, which puts strain on the unit.
Smaller problems that may have gone unnoticed become magnified by the stress on the system.
Why is my AC running but not cooling?
It’s not uncommon for the blower to operate even as other components of your air conditioner malfunction or fail.
You could have frozen evaporator coils, leaking refrigerant, or clogged condenser coils, which makes it impossible for your system to generate cold air.
How do you defrost an air conditioner?
The easiest way to resolve a frozen AC is to turn the air conditioner off but leave the fan on.
Typically, your thermostat will be set to cool with the fan on auto during the summer. Switch the setting to off and turn the fan on.
Wait an hour or so for your outdoor unit to defrost, then restore your typical thermostat settings.
If you’re worried you have a refrigerant leak or the system freezes again, you need emergency AC repair.
What should I do while I wait for emergency AC repair?
You’ll want to keep the temperature from rising, which means taking steps to prevent heat from being generated or entering your home.
That means closing blinds and curtains, keeping doors closed as much as possible, and not using heat-generating appliances like your oven.
After that, all you can do is stay hydrated and turn on all the fans in your home to promote airflow.
How do you reset your air conditioner?
You’ll want to start by flipping off the power at the circuit breaker so your AC is fully powered down. Then, find the reset button on the system and press it — the easiest way to find this will be to consult your owner’s manual.
