It’s August and your AC system is struggling to keep up with your demands. After you adjust the temperature, the cool air starts to blow but it doesn’t ward off the worsening heat.

When you're having AC problems, try the following DIY AC troubleshooting tips:
- Look for a clogged air filter. Your air conditioner is "suffocated" by a filthy filter. Do you notice the dirt layer on the filter? The amount of air your air conditioner can breathe is limited by the dirt.
- Check the settings on your thermostat. Seems obvious, but it happens frequently, especially as the seasons change from heating to cooling.
- Check the circuit breakers serving your air conditioner. If your AC circuit breakers have been tripped, reset them to the ON position and attempt operating your air conditioner again.
- Examine your exterior unit. If there is a coating of dirt on the outside of the device, clean it with a hose on a soft setting.
- Examine all of the air vents in your home. Many homeowners block supply vents in areas that aren't in use because they believe it will save them money on their energy costs. However, in reality, this will cause an imbalance in airflow that could damage your duct system and lead to costly repairs.
If you can't get the air conditioner to turn on at all, you're most likely dealing with a blown circuit breaker or fuse, an incorrectly adjusted or malfunctioning thermostat or a faulty internal switch.
Check to see if the AC is getting electricity from the electrical panel. Reset the circuit breaker and see if this resolves the problem. Check to see whether your thermostat is set to "cool" rather than "off" or "heat." Also, check for extra water in your condensate overflow tray. When water is gathered, there may be a sensor on your tray that switches the AC unit off.
Filters that are blocked are perhaps the most prevalent source of AC cooling problems. Filters can become clogged by dirt, pet hair, pollen and dust. When filters get clogged, they impede the passage of air through your air conditioner. As a consequence, your air conditioner is unable to efficiently chill your interior air. Filters that are clogged might cause problems with your system's interior evaporator coil and outdoor condenser unit.
