Sometimes your breakers can go off. Please check your Breaker box to ensure that all breakers are in “ON” position.

Check that your Air Conditioner Power switch is ON
This might be pretty obvious but believe it or not it is common for us to find that AC power switch was turned off and that caused Air Conditioner to stop working. Air Conditioner switch is located close by to the main AC indoor unit and looks identical to a regular light switch. Someone could’ve unknowingly switched the power off on Air Conditioner thinking it was the light switch. Try switching it back on and if your Air Conditioner starts to work, problem is solved.
Check you filters
If your filters are very dirty, it could lead to Air Conditioner not working properly and not cool your home. Change your air filters regularly, some filters need to be changed as often as every month.
Check for Ice Build Up
Check to see that there is no Ice build up on the hoses leading from the outside condenser to the inside of your home. Your Air Conditioner can “Freeze Up” due to variety of different problems, one of the most common ones is low level of Freon. Turn your Air Conditioner off for couple of hour to let it thaw and it might start working after it thaws. Be sure to have call us and have technician inspect your Air Conditioner unit in Toronto and GTA as freeze up might be a sign of a bigger problem that could lead to damage of AC System components.
