Is Your AC Off? Learn Why To Keep Cool

Not feeling any cool air from your air conditioner? It’s possible your AC is set to off. Before you suspect there’s something wrong with your AC, check to see that it’s turned on and that your thermostat is set at a cool temperature.

Check Your AC

The first thing you’ll want to do to restore cool air in your home is check your thermostat settings. The solution may be as simple as setting a cooler temperature on your unit. You’ll also want to identify what mode your thermostat is set to and be sure it’s set to ‘Cool’ instead of ‘Heat.’

How to check your AC

  • Check your thermostat to ensure that it's set to 'Cool.' The temperature setpoint should also be 2–3 degrees lower than the temperature of the house.

  • Check the display on your thermostat to see the settings. The display should indicate if the system is set to cool or heat, and whether the fan is set to auto or on. To get your AC running, your thermostat should be set to cool.

If your thermostat is set to the correct temperature and mode, consider other reasons for why your AC isn't working properly.

What To Do If Your AC Is Off

Adjusting the temperature or mode on your thermostat should bring cool air back into your home. If this isn’t the case, you may want to hire a professional technician to come and inspect your AC unit to see if there are any larger system issues at stake.
