5 Reasons an Air Conditioner Breaks
Dealing with a broken A/C? Here are five reasons you might be melting right now – and how we can help!
Your Thermostat Isn’t Working
The first place you should look when your A/C is not working is your thermostat. This is because many times when an air conditioning or heating unit is malfunctioning, it is actually the thermostat that is to blame. Save yourself costly and unnecessary repairs or replacements by ensuring that your thermostat is working, adequately connected to its power source, and is not in need of replacement itself.

You’re Having Sensor Issues
Your primary problem when you’re having heating and air issues isn’t always a broken A/C unit. Sometimes, your sensor may be experiencing issues. Some problems that may lead to inefficient air conditioning in your home include:
- A sensor that isn’t working properly or is damaged.
- A sensor placed in a small room that can be closed off or placed directly above or below a vent.
- A sensor that is outdated or otherwise in need of replacement.
Your Filter Needs Cleaned or Replaced
Dirty filters are a common concern with heating and air conditioning systems. Some homes may only need their filters replaced every three months or so, while others may need monthly replacements. Ask your heating and cooling professional to evaluate your system’s needs and advise you on how often to change your filter to keep your A/C running efficiently.
Your Refrigerant is Leaking
Is your air conditioner blowing hot air? You may be lacking refrigerant. Schedule an inspection and ask your provider to check for refrigerant leaks or low levels. This is an easy fix – and better fixed sooner, rather than once damage to your system has been done.
Your System Hasn’t Been Properly Maintained
Having your heating and air conditioning system maintained regularly will help you prevent many of the issues listed above. If you’re concerned that it’s been too long since your last inspection and tune-up – or you’re already dealing with any of the issues listed here – contact us at Same Day Service. We’ll help you get to the root of the problem – and get your home feeling cool and comfortable again!
