We all want to be cool and comfortable when that hot Chicago sun shines down in the summer, but what if the air conditioning stops working? This is a common issue, and it is one that can be fixed by local professionals. Here are some specific issues that might come up with your air conditioner:

The Air Conditioning Unit Doesn’t Turn On

If you lower the thermostat and the A/C unit doesn’t turn on, you probably will have a moment of panic. Why would it not turn on? There are a number of reasons for this, some of them much simpler than the others. You might just try to turn the thermostat down a few more degrees to see if it kicks on. If not, you could have a bigger problem such as the circuit breaker. You can check this at home. It’s pretty common for large appliances, such as an HVAC unit, to trip a circuit, so definitely check that before calling in the pros, as it might be something more serious like a failing motor or broken compressor.

The Unit Turns On, but Doesn’t Cool

Another common issue is that the A/C unit turns on, but it doesn’t cool the home. Again, the first thing to check is the thermostat. It might be too high. So, turn it down a few degrees and wait. Check the temp in the home. If it still isn’t cool, you could have a problem with the evaporator coil. It might be dirty and need a simple cleaning. There might be other issues, however, that would cause the unit not to cool. These issues have to be diagnosed and fixed by a pro.
