As the country begins to thaw out from a long winter, preparing your air conditioner is a good way to get ready for the hot weather that is sure to come. At Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning®, we recommend regular maintenance of your cooling system to ensure that everything is working properly. If you start up your system and notice that your AC is not blowing cold air, here are some troubleshooting tips to help you figure out what may be going on.

Check the Thermostat

Before you determine that you have a full-fledged air conditioning emergency, take the time to check your thermostat. Sometimes the fan is on, but the cooling function is not, so your AC is not blowing cold air. If there is still no cold air after you have selected the cooling function, you may need to consider either replacing your thermostat or calling a professional to look at it more closely.

Clean the Coils

Air conditioners work best when the filter and coils are clean and free from debris. You should make sure that your air filter is changed and can even try removing the coil assembly to clean it off.
