Air conditioners can break down for a variety of reasons

Air conditioners can break down for many reasons. One of the most common reasons is a dirty filter. Air conditioners need clean filters to function properly, so if your filter is dirty, your air conditioner may not turn on. Other reasons your air conditioner may not turn on include a tripped breaker, a blown fuse, or a faulty thermostat. If your air conditioner won't turn on, check the filter first. If it's clean, reset the breaker or replace the fuse. If that doesn't work, call a professional to diagnose and fix the problem.

Air conditioners can break down for a variety of reasons, including a lack of maintenance. Without annual AC tune-ups, an air conditioner can break down prematurely. If your air conditioner is already acting up, don't panic, it may just need a new filter. If it's more than that, call a professional to get the help you need. Air conditioners are complex machines and sometimes require a professional to get them back up and running. But there are a few things you can check yourself.

Check the power source - is it turned on and plugged in correctly?

If your air conditioner still won't turn on, check the power source. Make sure the air conditioner is turned on and that it's plugged in correctly. If it's not getting power, there may be a problem with the wiring or the outlet. Call 1-800-Plumber +Air of Pearland to fix the problem.

Make sure the air conditioner is set to "cool" mode

If your air conditioner still won't turn on, make sure the air conditioner is set to "cool" mode. Some air conditioners have a separate mode for heating and cooling. If the air conditioner is set to the wrong mode, it may not turn on.

Change the air filter if it's dirty

If your air conditioner is dirty, it may not turn on. Air conditioners need clean filters to function properly, so if your filter is dirty, your air conditioner may not turn on. Air conditioners also need regular maintenance to keep them running smoothly. Call a professional to get the help you need.

Clean the outdoor unit if it's dirty

Dirty air conditioners can be a health hazard. Not only do they not work as well as they should, but they can also cause mold and other allergens to build up inside your home.

To clean your air conditioner, you'll need to remove the cover and wash it with a garden hose. You should also clean the fan blades and the inside of the unit. Be sure to allow it to dry completely before putting the cover back on.

Check for any obstructions in the air flow

One common reason your air conditioner may not be turning on is because of an obstruction in the air flow. Check your air conditioner for any obstructions and clear them if necessary.

How to Save Money on Air Conditioning

Just because your air conditioning installation cost was high, it doesn't mean the maintenance cost should be. These are some tips from 1-800-Plumber +Air of Pearland for how to save money on your air conditioning in the long run.

Switch to an Eco-Friendlier System

A major disadvantage of an older A/C is how much energy it consumes. To spend less on your cooling bills, look for energy-efficient alternatives. 1-800-Plumber +Air of Pearland can help you with selecting the best A/C for both performance and efficiency.

A good way to find an efficient A/C is by checking its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The SEER rating for A/Cs is usually between 13 and 21. The higher the number, the more you stand to save. In a hot climate like Pearland's, you definitely want to aim high. An ENERGY STAR label is also a good way to know if an A/C is efficient.

Replace Your Thermostat

Getting a smart thermostat is one of the best choices you can make. These let you choose the temperature throughout the day. While you might need your A/C on full blast when you're at home, you probably won't need it running quite so high when you're at work or on vacation.


When you get air conditioning installation with 1-800-Plumber +Air of Pearland, be sure to ask about our recommendations for thermostats. Over time, a few degrees can mean a world of difference. It can also look a lot more appealing than your outdated old thermostat.

Filter Maintenance

You don't need to be a certified A/C technician to clean and change your air filters regularly. Every month, you should clean them out, and every 90 days (or 60 days if you have pets), you should replace them. Putting this off means that your A/C has to strain itself to work, leading to greater bills.

Yearly Inspections

Have your A/C looked at once a year, if not more frequently. The entire unit can become compromised by something as simple as a dirty condenser. It's important to catch these early, and 1-800-Plumber +Air of Pearland are the best people to do it.

Once we install your air conditioning, we'd love to schedule annual inspections. You can also get in touch with us if you have any concerns about your system. We want to make sure you're getting the best from your air conditioning.
