Are you unable to turn on your AC after a power outage?

Have you dealt with a power outage recently? Did your power flicker and now your AC won’t cool? We know exactly how frustrating it can be when your AC doesn’t turn back on after a power outage. Especially after a summer storm, and since we are quickly approaching the summer season, we thought it would be best to supply our local community with some air conditioning troubleshooting steps. Below we will go over five of the basic steps that you can do at home in order to troubleshoot and get your AC running again after a power outage.

5 Basic Steps For Restarting your Air Conditioning After A Power Outage

If you are a homeowner, don’t forget about our 5 HVAC troubleshooting tips for homeowners!

Step 1

Turn off the AC at the thermostat. This will stop the system from trying to start up, until we have reset both (internal and external) breakers.

Step 2

Find your breaker box and flip the breaker for your AC to the off position.

Step 3

Now that the AC has been turned off, go ahead and flip the breaker back on for the AC.

Step 4

Now wait 30 minutes. While you are waiting, the internal breaker of your AC should reset. Keep the thermostat turned off. The internal breaker of the AC will not reset if the thermostat is asking the AC to turn on and cool.

Step 5

After waiting 30 minutes, turn your thermostat back on to cool, and your air conditioner should turn back on!
